Howry Breen & Herman Files Lawsuit in San Francisco, CA Against Manufacturer—For Brain Injuries to a Child Caused by Defective Toy Buggy
Howry Breen & Herman (along with co-counsel Ara Jabagchourian) filed suit today against The Step 2 Company in the Northern District of California, San Francisco, CA.
Step 2 manufactured a defective toy wheeled buggy (known as the Step 2 Push Around Buggy) used for carting around small children and toddlers. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission instituted a product recall on the defective buggy because a pin can become dislodged and the handle breaks away causing the buggy to become uncontrolled by its handler. Howry Breen & Herman along with Ara Jabagchourian represent a child who sustained traumatic brain injuries when his buggy careened down a hill and smashed into a wall.
