Child Car Seat Defects

Child Car Seat Defects

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.

If your child has suffered from an injury because of a malfunctioning child car seat, you may be eligible for financial compensation for their medical expenses. Contact the Charleston product defect lawyers of the Steinberg Law Firm at 843-720-2800 to discuss your case with a knowledgeable and experienced attorney today.


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.
