Infant Inclined Sleeper Lawsuits
Millions of infant inclined sleepers have been recalled due to a design flaw that allegedly causes infants to suffocate. Babies who roll over in the inclined sleeper may be put in a position that cuts off their airway, resulting in asphyxia. Pediatricians advise parents only to let their babies sleep flat on their back without bedding to prevent asphyxia. Lawsuits allege that the infant inclined sleeper design violates this well-known rule.
Although nothing can undo the tragedy you’ve experienced, filing a claim may provide a measure of closure. It might also inspire positive changes that save other infants’ lives in the future, and any financial award can be used to cover the damages related to your child’s injury or wrongful death.
