Are you Using the Right Car Seat?

What type of car seat have you installed? Is it the right one based on your child’s age and size? If you don’t know the answers to these questions, you are taking a big risk. In the event of an accident, the wrong car seat could lead to serious injury.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shares a variety of information on making the right selection, including the following three tips:

  • Choose a car seat based on: age and size recommendations, car seat type, and ease of use rating.
  • Follow the manufacturer’s installation instructions.
  • Be aware of car seat recalls.

As you can see, making a selection is simple if you take the right approach. One thing many people overlook is the importance of tracking car seat recalls. If you register your car seat and receive a recall notice, it is important to take immediate action.

If you are ever involved in a motor vehicle accident in which you or a passenger (such as a child) is injured, contact us to discuss your legal rights.
