Parents of a Washington state toddler have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against IKEA, after the child became pinned underneath a MALM dresser that had toppled over. 4-year old Camden Ellis was taken to the hospital and remained on a ventilator for four days, after which time his parents made the decision to remove him from life support. The lawsuit is the second against IKEA in less than a year; a similar wrongful death suit was filed by the mother of Curren Collas, who died in February 2014 when a MALM dresser tipped over onto him. The Ellis lawsuit seeks compensatory and punitive damages for medical and funeral expenses, Camden’s pain and suffering, as well as the family’s emotional distress. Feldman Shepherd lawyers are representing both the Ellis and Collas families.
