According to the CDC, car seats save lives. They reduce infant fatalities by 71 percent and toddler fatalities by 54 percent. To ensure that car seats continue to save lives, the federal government has set forth standards that manufacturers have to follow. Sometimes, though, manufacturers get lazy and don’t follow the standards, and other times, they make mistakes. When that happens, car seats can malfunction. Then, a minor accident can turn into a serious injury for your child. In some cases, simply hitting a bump on the road can cause the child to flip out of the child safety seat and suffer an injury.
Malfunctions and Serious Injuries
Parents often think that child safety seat malfunctions will cause bumps and bruises, but the injuries are often much more serious. In fact, malfunctions often cause injuries that can lead to paralysis or other serious impairments. These lifelong injuries can create a lifetime of worry and medical bills.
