Cars are proportioned for adults, not children. Thus, keeping children safe in cars can be difficult. However, there are many devices available to increase the protection of young people in automobiles. Child safety seats are one of the ways that parents or guardians can improve the safety of travel, but sadly, these devices can malfunction and leave children in danger of devastating physical injuries.

COMMON CAR SEAT DEFECTS
Child car safety seats are meant to protect children that are too small for normal safety measures. However, both design flaws and manufacturing defects can result in unsafe child car seats. Some of the most common types of car safety seat defects include:
Latches or clasps that do not connect correctly
Weak webbing in the harness
Lack of adequate padding or support
Seat that can detach from the frame under stress
Use of flammable materials
No matter what type of defect has caused your child’s injury, there are steps you can take to fight back. By holding the party at fault responsible for their negligence, you can help prevent future child car seat accidents.
