crib-safeThe Consumer Product Safety Commission, a government agency charged with ensuring the safety of consumer products available for sale in the United States, offers tips for parents on ensuring the safety of their babies while sleeping in their cribs, or playing in a playpen. While no one would intentionally place their child in a dangerous situation, there are a number of ways that babies can be seriously injured in their cribs. One of the most important tips, and one that is not always obvious to new parents, is to avoid putting pillows or excessive blankets in the crib with the baby. The less objects that are in the crib, the better. Check that the mattress fits correctly, with spaces no bigger than two fingers’ width between the mattress and the sides of the crib. Please make sure that the crib is properly assembled. Do not use cribs older than ten years, and do not use a crib that may be broken or incorrectly assembled. Don’t put the crib near windows with cords from blinds or curtains. If your baby has been seriously injured because of a defective crib or other baby product, contact an experienced Denver products liability attorney today to discuss your options. Babies are curious by nature. One of the principle ways that they learn about the world around them is by investigating anything and everything around them. Putting their hands, feet, and heads through spaces they find, playing with, feeling, or tasting objects that they find, and exploring their environment are not just play for babies, but they are a key part of how they learn and develop. Unfortunately, this sometimes causes trouble. Each year, tens of thousands of babies are treated in emergency departments across the country as the result of cribs and other nursery products. john-fuller-personal-injury-attorneySpeak with dedicated Denver products liability attorney John R.

USA Today has issued a report about weather deaths in the United states. While tornadoes, hurricanes, and floods get the lion’s share of media attention, the majority of weather-related fatalities across the country occur when inclement weather causes car accidents. The Federal Highway Administration (FHA) says that over 7,000 people are killed in weather-related traffic crashes each year. They define a weather-related traffic crash as one that occurs in adverse weather: snow, heavy rain, ice, sleet, etc. Generally speaking, traffic accidents rarely make the news, outside of large, multi-vehicle pileups. Sheldon Drobot of the National Center for Atmospheric Research says that he would like to see a day when the increasingly advanced computer systems that cars have built in could share information, in order to help prevent some of these collisions. Have you or a loved one been seriously injured because of another driver’s carelessness? Speak with an experienced Denver auto accident attorney today to discuss your options. 7,000 fatalities per year due to weather-related traffic accidents is a tragically large number. In fact, it is roughly 20% of the more than 30,000 total traffic fatalities each year. This statistic really highlights the need for every driver to use caution when the weather turns bad. This means slowing down and allowing more following distance in bad conditions. It means allowing more time to get where you’re going. It means not allowing yourself to be in a rush, even if you’re running late. It may mean skipping trips in the car that aren’t necessary. All of these inconveniences are far less of a problem than a serious car accident in which someone is injured, or worse. john-fuller-personal-injury-attorneySpeak to dedicated, experienced Denver auto accident attorney John Fuller today if you or a loved one have been seriously injured in a Colorado car wreck.
