Defective Car Seats

Car Seat Defect Attorneys

As a parent, you do everything possible to keep your child safe, including making sure they are properly secured in a car seat when they are inside your vehicle. Unfortunately, if a car seat is defective, it may not do its job of protecting your child in the event of a collision. While a properly installed and functioning car seat can greatly reduce your child’s risk of injuries or death in a car crash, a defective car seat offers little to no protection at all.

At The Ammons Law Firm, we believe that no child or parent should have to suffer the devastating consequences of a manufacturer’s negligence. When defective products, such as car seats, lead to life-altering injuries, our attorneys provide aggressive and compassionate representation for victims and their families throughout the United States.

Common Car Seat Defects

Like all defective products, child car seats, booster seats, and infant car seats can be defective in a number of ways. A defective design may make the car seat inherently dangerous for ordinary use. In the event of a rollover, the structural integrity of the car seat plays a critical role in restraining occupants and mitigating injuries. Manufacturing errors may render an otherwise safe car seat defective. Improper or missing instructions or warning labels may lead to faulty installation or other mistakes that can lead to unthinkable consequences. Regardless, when car seats are defective, the liable party—whether it’s the designer, manufacturer, distributor, or some other party—can be held accountable.

Some examples of common car seat defects include:

  • Faulty car seat buckles which come undone in a collision or which aren’t childproof
  • Unclear, poorly worded, or missing installation instructions, leading to improper installation
  • Lack of sufficient car seat padding and/or cushioning
  • Defective chest clips can break, be undone by the child, or unfasten in a collision
  • Faulty bases, which can lead to car seats that unlatch or come loose in a crash
  • Defective car seat handles that release when the seat is being carried/moved

If your child’s car seat has been recalled or if you believe it is defective in any way, do not use it. You can report the defect to the manufacturer, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. If your child was injured in an accident and you believe his or her car seat was defective, leading to more severe injuries, reach out to The Ammons Law Firm.
