Car seat lawyers can help victims recover damages suffered due to defective car seats. While defective car seats are rarely the cause of accidents, they can cause serious injuries and even death.
Most drivers do not know that motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of unintentional death in children ages 16 and younger. And, while nearly all parents dutifully strap their children into child safety seats to protect them, defective car seats put children at risk every day.
Was your child injured in a car seat because the LATCH (lower anchors and tethers for children) system failed or it was subject to a product recall? Was your child injured in a car seat because it had a defective part, like a bad harness or defective handles? If so, you may be able to recover losses for your child by suing the car seat manufacturer.
Possible Manufacturing Defects in Car Seats
A child car seat can fail due to a number of manufacturing defects, including:
- Weak construction
- Defective harness
- Malfunctioning handles
- Flammable material
- Base/shell separation
- Failure to meet safety requirements
Child safety car seats are required to meet safety standards set by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). If your child is injured due to a car seat defect caused by manufacturer negligence, you have a legal right compensation for your child’s losses.
