Window Cord Injuries

Window Cord Injury Lawyers in Dallas

Helping Families in Dallas Obtain Justice

Homes that have window coverings that utilize a pull-cord or tasseled string to retract blinds or drapes present a unique danger to small children. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), window cords have caused at least 50 deaths between 2012 and 2017. Virtually all of these deaths were of children who were three years old or under.

If your infant or toddler was injured from a dangerous window cord, you might qualify for a legal remedy.

Responsibility for Window Cord Injuries

Under principles of products liability law, the manufacturer of a dangerously defective product is liable for injuries that arise from someone’s use of their product. A product is considered dangerously defective if some defect in the design or manufacturing process presents an unreasonable risk of harm to the user.

The risks that window cords present to small children are undeniable. According to the CPSC and, the mortality rate from window cords makes such a product among the most significant threats to infants and toddlers. Roughly half of the deaths of children who strangle in window cords have not been reported according to the American Medical Association.

Many homes come stock with windows that utilize a pull-string, cord, or tasseled method of retracting window coverings.

In those cases, the CPSC has released the following guidelines to minimize the threat to your child:

  • Keep all window cords out of reach of small children;
  • Tuck away dangling cords in a safe manner away from children’s range;
  • Keep beds, furniture, cribs, and toys away from windows – preferably to a distant wall
  • Keep tasseled pull cords as short as possible
