Defective Car Seats
Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of unintentional death in children 14 and younger. Keeping children restrained in car seats and booster seats is one way to reduce their risk of injury and death. For their own safety, infants and young children must be buckled into an appropriate car seat whenever they are being transported in a car, truck, or van. Yet, the very car seats parents are required to buy to protect their children can sometimes cause them harm.
Defective car seats are responsible for serious injuries and fatalities to infants and young children each year. If your child has been injured because of a defective car seat, you may be able to collect financial compensation for your child’s injuries, medical bills, pain and suffering, rehabilitation, disability, and disfigurement.
Possible Defects in Child Car Seats
A child safety seat can fail as the result of a number of manufacturing defects, including:
- Malfunctioning handles
- Sudden release
- Weak construction
- Flammable material
- Base/shell separation
- Defective harness
- Failure to meet safety requirements
Consumer Reports tested a dozen child car seats in a 35-mile per hour crash. All but two seats failed miserably.
