Join KID Thursday, July 16, 2020 at 6pm-6:45pm Central for a virtual conversation with Dan Mann, attorney representing families against IKEA and Crystal Ellis of Parents Against Tip-Overs. Moderated by Shawn Kasserman, KID Board President. This is part of KID’s Best Friend Award Conversations & Virtual Tribute. Register here.
Every 43 minutes a child is rushed to an emergency room due to injuries from furniture and TV tip-overs — and every 14 days someone dies. IKEA has recalled at least 20 million units of furniture due to tip-overs and paid out almost $100 million in two lawsuits. And they are just one of the many companies whose furniture has killed a child.
KID Board President Shawn Kasserman will speak with Dan Mann, an attorney who represents families whose children have died in IKEA furniture tip-overs along with Crystal Ellis of Parents Against Tip-Overs, who lost her son to a furniture tip-over and has become a fearless advocate fighting for reform.
Get an inside look into the multi-million dollar IKEA furniture tip-over settlements and learn more about this hidden hazard and how KID and others are working to keep children safe. This event is sponsored by Tomasik Kotin Kasserman Trial Lawyers.
