Worldwide reports of children injured and dying after becoming entangled in a window blind are on the rise. Since 1996, nearly 300 children have been strangled or seriously injured by the blinds according to an article in USA Today.
The attorneys at Harman Law Firm urge parents and concerned citizens to contact the firm with any injury or death from the blinds. Despite recalls of over a half million blinds in 2010, many previously installed in homes were not returned in the recall and still may pose danger.
