Settlement Reached in Defective Crib Suit Against Wal-Mart

In 2007, West Boca, Florida resident Constance Bergey found her two-year-old daughter, Serenity, dead in her crib. The toddler’s head had become stuck between a crib railing and the mattress of the crib, which was produced by the manufacturer Simplicity Inc. and marketed domestically by retail giant Wal-Mart.

Following the incident, Bergey filed suit against both Wal-Mart and the crib manufacturer. The suit claimed that a dangerous defect in the product’s design had contributed to the incident. Although it was recently announced that a settlement between the parties had been reached, some of the specific details of the agreement were not provided.
