Child Restraint Defects

Nearly all automobile manufacturers are required to incorporate the LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) seat restraint system on their vehicles. This system is effective, but when it suffers from defects, or in older vehicles not equipped with the system, child restraints may become unreliable. Young children in defective car seats are especially vulnerable in a rollover or other car accident. The Locks Law Firm serves injury victims in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York. If your child's car seat suffers from defects, a product liability lawyer from the Locks Law Firm may be able to help you litigate against liable parties and obtain compensation for your child's injuries.

Child Safety Restraints: a Unique Safety System

It is well known that effective safety restraints are essential to the survival of vehicle passengers in the event of an accident. However, although seat belts, airbags, and other restraints are statistically proven to reduce serious injuries and deaths for adult passengers, they can actually become a danger to young children in certain situations.

This is why a specially designed child car seat is so important. When free of defects, a child seat affords children the same protection that normal restraints offer adults. If defects are present, on the other hand, the seat may malfunction with tragic results, requiring the attention of a product liability lawyer.

If a defective car seat has brought harm to your child, consult the Locks Law Firm, serving clients in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York, to speak to a product liability lawyer. Child seat defects can contribute to catastrophic injuries, permanent disability, and even wrongful death. In the event that serious harm occurs, we will work with you to hold irresponsible child seat manufacturers responsible.
