Hazardous Toy Seriously Injures Child

Dr. Duane Priddy, Plastic Failure Labs

A 5 year old boy was playing with a toy robot with a lighted sword manufactured using a transparent brittle plastic. As the boy was putting the sword back into the hand of the robot, the sword blade broke into sharp pieces. One of the pieced flew into the eye of the boy causing permanent eye injury.

Our lead expert, Dr. Duane Priddy, determined that the sword was inappropriately manufactured using brittle crystal polystyrene and provided expert testimony in the matter.
