The Dangers Posed by Unsafe Car Seats
In 2009, 48 babies were killed and thousands were injured in crashes where they were strapped into infant car seats. - National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)
Parents often assume that all child car seats and booster seats are safe for transporting children. Unfortunately, the differences in quality and design of child car seats are enormous. Unsuspecting parents who believe they are protecting their children may actually be placing them at risk for serious accidents and injuries.
This NHTSA crash test video shows a child car seat that fell forward and sideways during a crash. Had a child, rather than a crash test dummy, been in the car seat, the child may have suffered serious injuries.
If your child was injured in any type of motor vehicle accident while riding in a car seat or booster seat, it is important to speak to an attorney who understands how unsafe car seats and dangerous child booster seats can cause or contribute to injuries in children.
