However, there are some cases where the protection one attempts to provide has negative consequences caused by circumstances beyond a parent’s control. Defects in child safety seats are unfortunate occurrences that hinder one’s ability to effectively protect infants and children from vehicle accidents and hazards on the road.
There is legal recourse for those who’ve had the misfortune of having dealing with a child’s injuries or other damages caused by defective child safety seats. Product liability provisions under personal injury law help accident victims hold manufacturers and other responsible parties liable for their actions or negligence. Sometimes, child safety seats are recalled and parents are provided with adequate warning in enough time to prevent them from making a bad purchase. But there are times when it becomes too late. In the event of an auto accident, defects in child safety seats that leave children unprotected can lead to severe injury and even death. Defects may be caused by engineering, design, or manufacturing and can go unnoticed during testing procedures. Users of these products that sustain injuries can seek the assistance of a qualified personal injury attorney to help them get the compensation they are entitled to for related damages. Individuals in need of legal counsel for this type of matter should seek the services of an attorney who:
- Is thoroughly knowledgeable in product liability law
- Is willing to take the time to explain to victims their legal rights and options, or other relevant information
- Has the experience, skill, and compassion required to effectively handle one’s case
