Information about Illinois Window Blind Cord Lawsuits from National Window Blind Cord Injury Lawyers
Efforts over the past thirty years to eliminate window blind cord strangulation hazards have failed. Six different Industry Standards have come up short, and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commision (CPSC) still lists window blinds as one of the top five hidden hazards in American homes. Technology to completely eliminate window blind hazards has existed for years, yet young children in Illinois and throughout the United States still die regularly of cord strangulation.
Companies that manufacture window blinds stand to benefit from limited regulation. Industry standards adopted by the Window Covering Manufacturers Association continue to fall short of measures that would prevent all window blind cord injuries, and numerous companies have failed to comply with even these sub-par standards. Feasible, safe alternatives do exist – but manufacturers must be forced to adopt with them.
In 2012, the Onder Law Firm jointly filed a Petition with the CPSC, along with several consumer advocacy and safety groups, calling for the CPSC to set forth a mandatory standard that would eliminate the risk entirely. The Onder Law Firm is committed to achieving this mandate on behalf of all the families who have lost young children to tragic window cord accidents.
