Hazards of Loose Magnets in Children’s Products and Toys

Whether children’s products and toys contain magnets for functional uses or entertainment purposes, these powerful devices should be carefully secured to the items so that they do come loose or break off into swallowable pieces. If a child attempts to swallow a magnet, he or she can choke or suffer devastating internal injuries if the item is ingested. In these situations, the negligent designer or manufacturer at fault for the defective item may be obligated to cover the child’s medical bills and other damages.

At Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., we believe that careless childcare product and toy manufactures should be held accountable for their actions. Our attorneys can help Denver parents work through the legal system and fight for justice on their children’s behalf.

Injuries Caused by Defective Magnets in Childcare Products and Toys

Loose magnets from defective childcare products and toys present two main dangers. The first is a choking hazard if the item is too large for a child’s airway. However, even if loose magnets are relatively small, they can still be damaging. If a child swallows more than one magnet, they may attract in the child’s digestive system, potentially leading to the following injuries:

  • Intestinal blockages
  • Intestinal perforation and internal bleeding
  • Circulatory shock
  • Sepsis

Parents of children injured due to defective toys or childcare products may be entitled to file a product liability claim against the item’s manufacturer for their family’s injury-related costs.
