Lawsuit alleges death of infant due to defective child carrier

A products liability case has been filed in Pennsylvania where a mother sued the manufacturer of an infant carrier deemed defective and that allegedly cause her child's death. Defendants named in the complaint have included Infantino LLC, the manufacturer of the carrier, and Wal-Mart and Wal-Mart stores, managers, and other companies and subsidiaries.

Though the lawsuit was filed back in June of 2010, the defendants named in the case have tried on various occasions to get the case dismissed on procedural grounds. Though summary judgment was at one point granted dismissing the lawsuit, this ruling was eventually reversed upon reconsideration. The defendants also tried to get the case moved out of Pennsylvania state court and into federal court because of so-called jurisdictional requirements, but this effort failed because the defendants' efforts were not timely.

The attorneys for large companies will often make a number of motions in products liability cases to make it as difficult upon plaintiffs as is legally possible. It's for that reason that individuals seeking recovery due to injuries caused by defective products should consult with attorneys that understand products liability law.

Products liability matters can often require a great deal of investment and time for the attorneys representing the plaintiffs. To achieve a successful outcome in these cases will often require the consultation with experts concerning how products are designed and manufactured, the preparation of document requests to be provided with company information regarding the circumstances behind the design of the product, a number of appearances in court to contest motions brought by the defendants, the negotiation with the defendants and insurance companies, and, if necessary, the trying of the case in court.
