Did the Car Seat Hurt My Child?
Infant and child safety car seats are extremely important. The hospital will not even let you take your newborn baby home until you have demonstrated that you can properly secure your baby into the car seat. Baby car seats and child seats are designed to protect children, shielding them from the violent forces of a car accident. These forces can cause strangulation, spinal cord injuries, skull fractures, traumatic brain injuries, or even death. Infants and children are at a higher risk of suffering devastating injuries if the car seat is not functioning properly-even in minor car accidents.
Know the Risks: How Car Seats Can Be Death Traps
Baby and child car seat problems include:
- Defective handles
- Defective latches
- Improper or sudden release
- Improper or defective construction
- Unanticipated rotation
- Defective harness or seat belt systems
- Weak shell design
- Flammable construction materials
- Construction materials that become brittle, causing them to break in an accident
In some cases, the seat may have been designed in a way that failed to support the head, neck, or spine of an infant or child in a motor vehicle accident. Other car seats don't allow children to be positioned securely. For example, defective webbing materials that cannot be tightened to the point of secure containment may allow the child to be bounced around or ejected from the seat in an accident.
Car Seat Safety Resources for Parents
The National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) maintains a comprehensive website with information about vehicle and car seat safety. This website is constantly updated with notifications regarding child safety seat defects and recalls. Use this resource to make sure the car seat you are currently using is safe or to help guide your shopping decision.
