About Inclined Sleeper Injury Cases
In 2019, Fisher-Price recalled 4.7 million Rock ‘n Play sleepers after they caused 32 infant deaths.
Despite this, Fisher-Price and other companies continued to market their products as “safe” and “risk-free.”
Other brands with inclined sleepers that cause serious injury to infants include Graco, Evenflo, SUMR Brands, Delta, Kids II, and Dorel.
Even though the US Consumer Product Safety commission recommended parents stop using inclined sleepers in October 2019, many remain on store shelves today.
To top it off, pediatricians have recommended for years that infants only sleep on their back on firm, flat surfaces to avoid asphyxia and the serious injuries, and even death, it can cause.
These large companies really have no excuse for putting your child at risk.
But how do you hold them accountable?
Frequently Asked Questions about Inclined Sleeper Lawsuits
How long do I have to file a lawsuit if my child was hurt or died due to the fault of an inclined sleeper?
Each State has its own statute of limitations which controls how long you have to file. If you wait to file longer than the State’s statute of limitations then a court could throw out your claim. Some of these claims allow for additional lime due to a doctrine called the ‘discovery rule.’
Due to the varying statutes of limitations and possible application of the discovery rule, it’s important to act as quickly as possible. This gives you more credibility with judges and juries because they place higher trust in injury victims who act fast.
It also gives your lawyer the most time possible to build the strongest case possible.
Will my inclined sleeper claim win when taken to court?
It depends on the circumstances of your child’s injuries, the evidence you have, the skill of your lawyer, and how much your lawyer cares.
Mullen & Mullen is a top rated firm with experienced senior attorneys who personally do the hard work of assembling your case. Larger firms frequently have a supervising attorney who oversees paralegals and inexperienced junior attorneys.
Because they have more cases, they care less about winning each one. And instead, they focus on the volume of cases rather than maximizing the value of your claim and your odds of winning.
Should my child ever be in an inclined sleeper? How safe are baby products?
Your baby should never sleep on any sort of incline. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) always recommends a firm, flat surface.
Baby products are not as safe as you would hope. For example, Graco was fined $4 million in 2005 for failing to report injuries and deaths caused by its products.
It was the largest fine handed out up to that point in time by the federal Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC).
In 2007, Graco recalled 40,000 Nursery-in-a-Box cribs, and in 2005 they recalled 104,000 Aspen 3-in-1 cribs.
In 2008, 900,000 bassinets made by Simplicity were recalled. And Fisher-Price recalled 4.7 million Rock ‘n Play sleepers because they caused 32 wrongful deaths and hundreds of serious injuries.
Before using any new baby product, talk with your doctor and monitor official sources like the CPSC’s website, which offers regular child and infant products safety updates.
What can I get compensation for in an inclined sleeper injury claim?
It depends on the circumstances surrounding your child’s injuries. You may get compensation for:
- Emotional pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship
- Medical bills
- Funeral expenses
- Punitive damages

What Should You Look for in an Attorney to Take on Your Inclined Sleeper Injury Case?
You want the best lawyer you can find. Big companies like Fisher-Price, and its parent company Mattel, have billions of dollars and do not want to lose any more than they must. They have their own legal teams designed to pay you as little as possible.
You can afford the best personal injury lawyer because they only take their fee after you win your personal injury case and get your compensation.
Start by researching our firm’s reputation. Google “Mullen and Mullen Dallas,” read our reviews, and compare them to the competition.
It is also important your personal injury lawyer has a proven history of delivering results. Mullen & Mullen wins you more because, unlike other firms, we do not hire inexperienced paralegals or junior attorneys.
