Cincinnati Child Car Seat Defects Lawyer

Many parents believe they are protecting their children by placing them in car seats when hitting the road. While car seats are intended to keep children safe, recent statistics show that the majority of car seats are improperly installed or defective and actually put children’s lives at risk. A recent study reported that 81.6 percent of car seats were improperly installed across the nation, potentially leading to devastating injuries and even death for the children involved.

If your child has been injured in a car accident because of a defective or faulty car seat, you may need the help of a qualified personal injury lawyer. The Cincinnati defective child car seat attorneys of Stepleton Dugan, LLC are here to help you get the financial compensation you deserve. Contact us today at 513-321-7733 to fight back.

Common Car Seat Flaws

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that child seats reduce an infant’s risk of death in an accident by 71 percent. However, if the child car seat is defective, then the faulty car seat could actually lead to injuries rather than prevent them. There are many different components of a child’s car seat that could malfunction and increase your child’s risk of an injury. Some of the most common types of car seat defects include:

  • Safety harness that was improperly designed or installed
  • Lack of padding
  • Cushions that separate at the seams
  • A seat that can disconnect from the base during an accident
  • The use of material that is easily flammable

All of these defects can cause significant injury to your child in case of an accident. However, by holding the designer or manufacturer responsible for their errors, you can help discourage future child car seat flaws.
