Child Safety Seat Defects

Your child’s safety is most likely one of your top priorities when you are driving with your child in the backseat. Most people invest in name-brand child safety seats, thinking that they will help to ensure the safety of their children in the event of a collision. However, sometimes manufacturers or designers of child safety seats make critical errors that make their child safety seats dangerous, causing serious injury or even death in the worst cases.

If your child has been injured in a car accident because of a defective child safety seat, you may be entitled to financial compensation to address the resulting medical bills and other relevant damages. Contact the experienced Appleton car accident attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. by calling 800-242-2874 to discuss your potential case with a knowledgeable and dedicated lawyer.

Types of Defects

Child safety seats should never be sold with defects, but this happens and parents should be aware of possible safety seat defects. Some common defects of child safety seats include:

  • Faulty locking mechanisms
  • Faulty seatbelts
  • Weak harness
  • Seat detachment from base
  • Lack of padding/support
  • The use of substandard materials

Manufacturers should be held accountable for their failure to provide a product that is safe and suitable for its intended purpose, and we can help you to ensure that they are.
