In this press release, the death of Theodore “Ted” McGee is described. Ted McGee of Minnesota was killed in February 2016 when a six-drawer IKEA MALM dresser tipped over, crushing him in the process. The press release also describes Feldman Shepherd’s representation of the McGee family in a lawsuit, as well as the firm’s involvement in two other similar IKEA furniture tip-over lawsuits. These lawsuits allege that IKEA designed and sold dressers that were defective and dangerous, and do not meet furniture industry safety standards for stability. IKEA has since refused to issue an official recall, which has resulted in millions of unsafe dressers still present in homes throughout the U.S.
Parents of any child injured by a dresser that has overturned — whether IKEA or any other brand — are urged to contact Feldman Shepherd to share their story and discuss their legal options. The firm can be reached at (844) 480-0100 or by filling out the form below.
