Madison Child Car Seat Defect Attorneys
When a parent puts their child into a car seat and prepares them for a trip, there is an inherent degree of good faith that the parent must place in the car seat manufacturer. As children are too small to use or benefit from standard seats and belts, a car seat is used to provide children with a safe means to travel along with their parents during errands or to and from appointments.
If your child has been injured because of a failure associated with their car seat, contact the Madison child car seat defect lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, at 800-242-2874 today to learn more about your legal options.
Possible Malfunctions and Flaws
It is difficult for a parent to detect a product flaw prior to catastrophe, especially in the case of a child safety device. Without destroying the product just to see how it reacts to certain stresses, a consumer instead has to trust the product’s manufacturer. However, considering the following faults, this can be a problematic relationship:
- Broken, cracked, or fragile protected shell
- Snapping harnesses
- Defective buckles
- Devices that do not properly fasten to the vehicle
These malfunctions can lead to serious injuries, especially when sustained by such young and fragile bodies. Broken bones and severe cuts can require significant treatment and can develop into more complicated problems without proper attention. If a child is unfortunate enough to sustain a head injury or suffers from emotional trauma following the collision, the effects can last for the remainder of their lives.
