Thousands of Children Under 5 Injured by Exposure Personal Care Products

Some 64,686 children under 5 have been treated at U.S. emergency rooms during a 15-year period for an injury caused by exposure to perfume, nail polish, makeup and other personal care products. The injury totals from 2002 to 2016 were reported in the journal Clinical Pediatrics, and were based on U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission data. Nearly all injuries (99 percent) occur at home, and children younger than 2 are hurt more often than 2- to 4-year-olds. The most common diagnosis is poisoning (86 percent of injuries), usually caused by children inhaling or swallowing a personal care or cosmetic product, but sometimes chemical burns result from children’s contact with a product (14 percent of injuries).

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
