Avoiding Child Choking Accidents

According to reports, more than 2,800 Americans die annually because of a choking incident. A large percentage of choking victims are children. There are several precautionary measures you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones from the hazards of choking.

If you or someone you love has been the victim of a choking incident, and you believe another party was responsible, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your losses. Contact the Cincinnati personal injury attorneys of Stepleton Dugan, LLC to determine your legal options. Call 513-321-7733 today to schedule a free case evaluation.


In order to prevent accidental death due to choking, parents should be trained in CPR and First Aid techniques. In the event of an emergency, techniques like the Heimlich Maneuver can save a loved one’s life.

Additional preventative measures include:

  • Teaching your children to chew their food carefully and thoroughly
  • Making certain that your child eats while sitting at the table. Running or playing while eating frequently causes food to get lodged in the windpipe.
  • Cutting up foods that are hard and could obstruct an airway
  • Buying toys that are age appropriate for your child

While taking the above precautions may reduce your child’s chance of choking, accidents can still occur. If you or your child has suffered from a choking incident, you should consult an experienced personal injury attorney who will investigate the case for liability.
