Parents use child car seats because they believe they will keep their most precious cargo safe from harm. We place our highest trust — and the very lives of our children — into the hands of child car seat designers and manufacturers. But when those designers and manufacturers fail to deliver a safe and reliable product, it is innocent children and their anguished families who are left to suffer the consequences. Child car seats are supposed to prevent injuries — not cause them. When the worst happens and a child car seat does result in injury or even death, the cause is frequently poor design, faulty construction, or a manufacturing defect. If your child was hurt by a defective car seat, you may be able to hold the manufacturer liable for the terrible pain and enormous medical expenses you and your family have been forced to cope with.
