Metal Futon Beds Recalled

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 25-Jul-2011

Reports say that after conferring with U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission officials, Big Lots, of Columbus, Ohio, has voluntarily recalled about 30,000 defective metal futon beds. At least one entrapment death has been linked to the beds, reports say. Reports say that children can become entrapped in the futon when the metal frame is lowered to the flat position.

Reports say a three-year-old Iowa boy's head and neck became trapped early in 2010 when the frame was lowered and the weight of the futon prevented the child from breathing and escaping. The child died at the hospital.

The recalled metal beds were evidently sold exclusively by Big Lots stores, manufactured in China. The Consumer Product Safety Commission has advised consumers to immediately stop using the beds and to contact Big Lots for a free repair kit.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
