Playground Slides Recalled after Reported Injuries

Slalom Gliders, a popular slide installed in playgrounds, is being voluntarily recalled by its manufacturer Landscape Structures Inc. and The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The product was officially taken off the market on February 16th of this year because the product was found to lack a key component, a transition platform, which poses a fall hazard for when children are climbing onto the slide from the ladder. At the time of the recall, there had been 16 reported injuries to children after they used this slide. The injuries range from minor bruises to a fractured collar bone and bruised spleen. The exact Slalom Gliders that were found to be defective were 6 feet high and made from molded plastic, with the model numbers 156456 and 172627.

Many products are recalled every day because of reported injuries and malfunctions, and it is unfortunate when these injuries are at the expense of children. Common product malfunctions that cause harm to children are dangerous toys, defective cribs, and defective car seats, just to name a few.

With hundreds of millions of dollars won on behalf of our injured clients, you can trust our firm to get you the compensation you deserve after being injured by a defective product.
