Safety Concerns With The BOB Jogging StrollerMississippi Legal News
Jogging strollers are popular for new moms who want to shed the baby weight and get back into shape while spending time with their new little bundles of joy. New parents need to be up-to-date on which children’s products are safe and which have had to be recalled or have had safety concerns. Britax is the manufacturer behind the BOB jogging stroller. This popular, albeit, the expensive jogging stroller has shown to be dangerous for both the children riding within and the parents pushing it from behind. The main issue that has caused concern and a serious safety issue is the front wheel has been reported to fall off during use.
Many crashes have been reported for those who have been actively using the stroller. These individuals have experienced minor bumps and bruises up to severe injuries like torn ligaments, smashed teeth, and broken bones. Britax is very aware of this issue, so much so, that they have an online video to show consumers the correct way to use the front wheel. Additionally, the company has labeled the strollers with a tag offering instructions for users to understand how to safely get the most out of their product.
The company has not stopped there. Britax also reported that they made adjustments on the stroller to address this issue. While this is great for newer models, it doesn’t help those that have the older wheel design. The original model is still in some households and because of this, there are still accidents being reported.
Even though Britax knows about the problem and there have been so many of the company’s customers negatively impacted by the faulty design, they have yet to recall the stroller. Britax simply refuses to recall the product. Even though the company has publicly addressed the issue and claimed that they made the changes necessary to address it, that doesn’t mean that you or your child are without risk when using the BOB stroller.
Steps To Take If You Or Your Child Has Been Injured In A Bob Stroller Accident
If you or your child has been injured in a jogging stroller accident, you may have a strong case for a product liability lawsuit, and a knowledgeable Mississippi product defect attorney will be able to advise you on whether or not you do. Consumers can hold manufacturers, distributors, and retailers responsible for injuries sustained by using their products if a couple of things are true. Consider the following:
- If the product was defective at the time it was used
- If physical injuries are sustained
- If the defect is the cause of the injuries
In general, the need to prove the fault isn’t necessary for this type of suit. The reason why is because experts like safety engineers can examine the product and determine if the product was defective or if there was a failure on the part of the company to warn consumers about potential issues.
