Toddler Injury due to conversion crib

0 answers
My daughter is 2 years old. And we decided to convert her bed to a toddler bed. After we converted the crib to a toddler bed it was going great for about three months. This month on the 12th, she had a serious injury due to this conversion. When we took the front of the crib off to put the conversion up, the side posts that originally holding the front up still remained. My daughter went to stand up to come to me after a nap, and she lost her balance and hit her head on the side post. She split her head open and needed stitches. She also had a concussion for six hours at the hospital. I called the crib manufacturer to make them aware of the situation and I have letters and emails proving that they said I would get my money back for the crib and they would pay for the hospital bills. The crib manufacturer is summer infants. And now they are completely ignoring me and they will not respond to me. The crib is a cherry Manchester conversion crib. It is very dangerous. Anyone who has this crib, please to not try to convert it. If my daughter needed stitches and had a concussion, just imagine if it happens to another child, and can seriously injure the innocent child. I don't know what else to do. I am trying to put the word out there that this crib is dangerous and something needs to be done before another child gets hurt even worse.
