Average Of 26 Children Hurt By Cribs Every Day
The Charles E. Boyk Law Offices would like to inform you of a recent study done about baby cribs. A baby’s crib is often one of the few places where parents can place their child and feel OK leaving the baby unattended. It’s the focal point of most nurseries, a must-have item on many baby registries. Yet an average of 26 children suffers a crib-related injury every day.
About 9,500 children a year were treated in the emergency room for crib-related injuries.
The study showed that from 1990 to 2008 there were more than 181,000 children under the age of two were taken to an emergency room around the country for injuries related to at least one of the nursery products.
Falling was the most common cause of injury. 83% of the total injuries were from cribs.
