Toxic Chemicals


No Recovery, You Owe Us Nothing

Dangerous Toy Lawyers in Tallahassee and West Palm Beach, FL

Toys made with toxic chemicals are responsible for countless emergency room visits every year. Despite the well-known dangers of many substances – particularly for young children – product designers and manufacturers continue to put toys on the shelves that have the potential to cause severe injuries and cognitive impairments. Oftentimes, these products are sold without adequate warning labels, so parents have no idea that their children are being exposed to toxic chemicals.

If your child has been diagnosed with an injury, illness or other medical condition linked to a toxic chemical used in the manufacture of children’s products, your family may be entitled to significant financial compensation. At Searcy Denney, we bring decades of experience to representing Florida families in product defect claims against toy manufacturers and other large corporations. We routinely handle cases involving complex questions of product liability and corporate responsibility, and we take a personalized and aggressive approach to every case in order to help our clients recover maximum compensation.

Toxic Chemicals in Children’s Toys

Toys manufactured in the United States and abroad can contain a variety of chemicals that are potentially harmful to children. While federal regulations limit the use of certain toxins (such as lead) in consumer products, these regulations do not cover all toxic manufacturing chemicals, and toys manufactured overseas will often contain dangerously-high levels of harmful substances.

Toxic chemicals that are commonly used to manufacture toys and other children’s products include:

  • Bromine
  • Cadmium
  • Mercury
  • Lead
  • Phthalates
  • Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic

These chemicals appear in everything from pacifiers and teething rings to rattles, blocks, figurines, and electronic toys. Unfortunately, while companies have a legal responsibility to warn of the risks associated with their products, it is not unusual for children to suffer from exposure to toxic chemicals not listed on product packaging.

Health Risks from Toxic Toys

The health risks associated with toxic chemicals commonly found in children’s toys vary. The effects of toxic exposure can also vary by age, with infants and toddlers often being particularly-susceptible to the effects of ingesting and inhaling harmful substances. Some of the potential consequences of exposure to toxic chemicals in toys include:

  • Brain damage
  • Cognitive impairments
  • Developmental delays
  • Disfigurement
  • Gastrointestinal dysfunction
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Reproductive system abnormalities

For families, the financial and emotional toll of these conditions can be devastating. Parents will often incur years of medical bills, and in many cases families will need to make lifelong accommodations for the consequences of toxic chemical exposure. As the child ages, he or she may be unable to go to school or undertake a career as a result of his or her condition. However, these financial costs often pale in comparison to the emotional trauma that child victims will endure. In these types of cases, it is critical for parents to ensure that their children will have the financial resources necessary to live productive and fulfilling lives, and this starts with seeking experienced legal representation.
