Have you checked your Christmas list for these dangerous toys?

With Black Friday coming up and a limited number of days to shop for Christmas presents, you may have collected your children's wish lists and highlighted the toys you want to buy at the nearest Texas store or shopping mall. However, not all popular toys are safe. According to USA Today, here are some hazards that some of this years' toys may include.

Fidget spinners: a dangerous trend?

New products are constantly cycling in and out of popularity in today's fast-paced consumer culture. One of those products is the infamous fidget spinner, a stress-relieving toy that has spun into public consciousness with a trail of positive and negative criticism alike. What are the potential drawbacks to owning such a product in Texas? Recent news coverage reports on how these toys could prove to be highly dangerous, depending on a number of factors. 

Lawsuits claim drug makers downplayed risks, side effects

When a doctor in Texas prescribes medication to treat a health condition, whether it is for diabetes, heart disease or even asthma, patients accept that it is safe to take. They may ask about the drug's side effects, but the thought that it may hurt them probably does not enter their mind.

Children’s fad toys may need closer review for dangers

As reported by CNN, children’s toys can become famously in-demand almost overnight. The fidget spinner is just such a phenomenon. Bursting on the scene in 2017, and with many kids owning and carrying multiple spinners at a time, it remains all the rage.

Products liability and consumer rights

Products liability laws not only help prevent injuries and potential deaths, but also hold manufacturers, distributors and suppliers responsible in case the product does cause injuries. The details vary concerning whether retailers should be held responsible in these circumstances, as well, and can depend on the type of case and state. In Texas, and the rest of the United States, there are different types of product liability laws that place blame on defects and failure to warn the public about potential safety hazards.

Time is everything when it comes to products liability

In today's technologically-driven world, simple products are no longer simple. Innovative and advanced approaches to life's tasks include the mass distribution of new gadgets, tools and toys, and while these products are popular and successful overall, some in Texas are safer than others.
