In a landmark case, our attorneys obtained a confidential settlement during trial against a baby high chair manufacturer. Leesfield Scolaro successfully represented the family of a child who was killed when he "submarined" and was suffocated in a baby high chair. The manufacturer failed to warn parents that the feeding tray may not be used to restrain a baby. The safety straps provided by the manufacturer are not used or will not secure the child. If a child is left momentarily unattended, he can slide against the tray and choke. This was a well known hazard to the juvenile furniture manufacturing industry.
More recently, our firm reached a $1,100,000 award for the wrongful death of a four-month-old baby who suffocated as a result of design defect in a juvenile product. For a complete list of the firm's representative results, go to our Verdicts and Settlements section.
