If your baby suffered a Rock ‘N Play Sleeper related injury or death, we urge you to contact Jed Dietrich, Esq. today to discuss your claim. In New York, there are strict time deadlines to bring claims for personal injuries or death, so it is important to discuss your case with a seasoned product liability law attorney to ensure that your rights are protected.
In the meantime, in case a Fisher-Price representative or anyone else contacts you, we highly suggest the following:
- Do not provide any statements. Lawsuits involving product liability issues are often complicated, and it can be easy to misrepresent important details that may jeopardize your case.
- Never discuss injuries or your case on social media. Both defense attorneys and insurance companies use social media to assist them in disputing injuries and offering reduced settlements.
- Do not give the Rock ‘N Play Sleeper to anyone. When manufacturers, their lawyers or other representatives receive a defective product, they typically engage in destructive examinations. If the sleeper is taken away, disassembled or altered, your chances of establishing the sleeper was defective or the cause of your child’s injuries may decrease. Recalls of products tend to help manufacturers in this endeavor. By recalling their defective sleepers, Fisher-Price regains possession at a much lower price than a product liability claim.
- Never discuss your claim with anyone besides your attorney. It is important to keep all important details about your claim between you and your lawyer. If you feel the need to share information with others, it is important to first talk to your lawyer about what the consequences of doing so may be.

Under New York law, the Rock ‘N Play Sleeper must be reasonably safe for its intended use and Fisher-Price must warn of all foreseeable dangers which might not be apparent to consumers. To demonstrate product liability, it must be shown that the sleeper was defective and that the defect produced an unreasonable risk for its anticipated purpose. Defects can be characterized as design, manufacturing and/or marketing defects.
Based on the infant sleeping recommendations from the AAP, NIH and healthychildren.org, Fisher-Price designed and produced defective Rock ‘N Play Sleepers. As a result, the company may be held liable for deformities, injuries and fatalities their sleepers caused. After numerous parents reported that their babies died while sleeping the Rock ‘N Play Sleeper, Fisher-Price became aware of the dangers, yet failed to warn consumers. Fisher-Price continued to market and sell the Rock ‘N Play Sleeper for 8 years after the first reported death of an infant in 2011.
Fisher-Price also failed to exercise a reasonable standard of care in the design, manufacturing and marketing of the Rock ‘N Play Sleeper for the use of infants. Fisher-Price’s advertising their sleeper as suitable for prolonged or overnight sleep for infants, without medical safety tests, was deceptive and misleading. The 30-degree angle that infants lay in inside the sleeper increased the risk of various deformities, such as torticollis, which is a twisted neck, and flat head syndrome, also known as plagiocephaly. These conditions often require infants to wear special helmets and undergo extensive physical therapy.
