Defective Child Car Seats

Safely transporting your child in your car is a daily concern for many parents. Avoiding accidents is always a primary concern, but not all accidents can be avoided, especially those which are not your fault. In those instances, you want to be certain that your child is safe. Child car seats should be designed with that safety in mind as well, but what if your child’s car seat is defective? This could result in even greater injury for your child.

If you believe that a defective child car seat contributed to the injury of your child, either in an accident or emergency situation, you deserve to be compensated for the damages incurred by your family. You need experienced legal counsel on your side to help you seek justice from the negligent manufacturer.

Child Car Seat Defects

Defects in child car seats can be harmful and even deadly for children depending on their performance during an accident. Car seats are created to protect a child from a potentially harmful environment, not to create a harmful environment. The following are some of the potential defects that you should be aware of when purchasing or using a child car seat:

  • Unsafe straps which cause injury because of excessive force exerted on the child
  • Unsafe straps which cause injury because of a lack of force exerted on the child
  • Padding and lining made of flammable materials
  • Padding which does not properly compress with the occupant in an accident
  • Connectors which crack, bend or release during severe accidents

These are all crucial factors to consider in the design of a child car seat and when purchasing a car seat that properly fits both your child and your vehicle.
