Child's Death from Portable Crib Results in $3 Million Settlement
Corboy & Demetrio reached a $3 million settlement agreement with Kolcraft & Hasbro for the death of a 16-month-old child. Danny Keysar was killed in a Playskool Trav'l Lite portable crib when the foldable side rails collapsed on his neck, strangling him. Defendants sold the Playskool Trav'l Lite portable crib between 1990 and 1992. The portable crib featured two collapsible side rails which were intended to make the portable crib easier to carry. Instead, the side rails formed a strangulation hazard if the portable crib collapsed while an infant was in it. Six children had been killed in the same model of the Playskool portable crib at the time of Danny’s death.
