Children can also become victims of consumer product defects or dangers from food, medicines or other items intended to treat and help them. Defective products containing harmful chemicals may sometimes cause even stronger effects when babies are the victims. This could be because their bodies are much smaller and thus they may be less tolerant to the poisonous substances.

Types of Product Defects
Products can be dangerous from defects in manufacturing, in the design of the product itself or from a failure to provide adequate consumer warning about dangers inherent in the product. Even a product that becomes defective before its warranty expires can be dangerous. Depending on the circumstances, the manufacturer or distributor of the product can be held accountable for the defect which resulted in injury. For example, if a drug manufacturer does not provide sufficient warning on a drug and it results in injury or death, that pharmaceutical company is liable.
