MANY DEFECTIVE CHILD CAR SEATS ARE NOT REPAIRED
Last year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recalled 6 million auto seats for a possibly dangerous defect. However, the agency admits that less than half of those car seats were brought in for repairs.
It is not as if parents don’t care about the safety of the auto seat that their precious cargo is traveling in. In most cases, parents are simply are not aware of these recalls. That’s usually because many parents fail to register their car seats at the time of purchase. Registration of the car seat by filling out the product registration card is a simple step that you can take at the time of purchase to ensure that you are frequently updated with information about recalls and safety defects involving the car seat.
It takes just a few minutes to fill out the product registration card, and it’s an important step that many parents simply choose to miss. As a result, parents may remain unaware of recall information related to their car seats, and the child may continue to travel in a possibly defective or malfunctioning auto seat.
Every year, millions of auto seats are recalled for defects. When a auto seat contains a defect, there is a serious risk of injury to the child during an accident. If your child has suffered an injury as a result of a defective car seat, speak to a personal injury lawyer in Bronx.
