Car Seat Defects Our Goal: Winning & Winning Big

Child Seat Defects

Helping Child Seat Victims across the United States

Child seats are made to protect young travelers. However, certain designs contain defects, which lead to catastrophic injuries or death. In many situations, properly designed safety seats would prevent these tragedies. Unbelievably, the child safety and automobile industries refuse to take responsibility for these occurrences. Most manufacturers blame innocent parents for the problems.

Common Car Seat Defects

It is important to make the roads safer for children. Every parent must be made aware of possible child seat defects so that serious injuries are avoided. One of the most common defects is the angle of recline. Many front and rear facing child seats are designed to sit horizontally in cars. During accidents, this may cause great harm. Also, the restraints on the seats are often in the wrong places. Chest clips are commonly positioned too far down, which can lead to ejections. Three-point harness straps provide no support to children’s laps, which presents grave danger during accidents as well. Shoulder harness slots are poorly labeled, which makes them difficult to use correctly.

As children age, it becomes necessary to use booster seats. However, these units rarely offer upper body support. During crashes, ejections are likely.

Common Injuries Linked to Child Seat Defects

Although car seats are designed to keep children safe, defects can turn minor car accidents into nightmares. Infants and toddlers may be thrown from these seats, trapped in position, or injured by the seats themselves. If straps are crafted from low-quality materials, tears may occur. This means children can be thrown from the seats. Defective locking mechanisms may make it challenging to remove children during emergencies as well.

Who is Responsible?

When a defective car seat causes a child’s injury, a product liability lawsuit may be filed against the manufacturer. This type of action may be taken when straps, restraint locks, or any other car seat parts are found to be defective. When a manufacturing mistake or design problem leads to a child’s injury, the makers and distribution chain should be held responsible for negligent actions.
