Protect your child from auto injuries
Personal injury attorneys know how important car seats and seat belt can be. Recent reports reveal that third of the children who died in car accidents in the U.S. in 2011 were not properly buckled in. Personal injury lawyers understand that millions of children are still at risk because there are still a significant number of children that are not properly buckled in during each and every car ride. Our children rely on us to keep them safe on our roadways.
Car seats are not purchased for convenience like strollers. Car seats are designed to save your child’s life. The most important rule it to find a car seat that fits your child. Assess their car seat every six months because as children grow, how they sit in the car will invariably change. Make sure the car seat you choose is designed to fit your child's current size and age group.
Your safest option is to buy a brand new car seat for your child. You should only purchase a used car seat if you personally know of its full crash history. It is best to buy used car seats from people that you know and trust. It is best to refrain from buying car seats from a thrift store or over the internet. Once a car seat has been involved in a car crash, it should be immediately replaced.
