Our lead counsel, Michael Ehline, himself had a close call with his child. He relates this occurred while using a sling carrier device with his own small son. And this was before there were any major recalls. This demonstrates that consumers too, should also exercise good judgment and mitigate potential losses.
So this can be achieved by being vigilant and alert when using any new device. Most of all, utmost care should be used with any toy, or other product, in conjunction with children. In Ehline’s case, he is a trained products defect attorney.
Lucky for his family, Michael has more knowledge, training, and skill when it comes to an understanding the many ways a person or their kin can rapidly become a victim. He immediately stopped using the sling carrier device.
