Connecticut Law Firm Is Proud to Share Latest Infographic on Car Seat Safety
STAMFORD, CT, April 8th, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ — The Stamford and Bridgeport serving law firm, Wocl Leydon, LLC, is happy to be sharing tips regarding car seat safety. As a law firm that works on numerous car accident cases, Wocl Leydon cares about the safety of all involved, especially children.
The infographic shares information on how to ensure that a car seat is both functioning correctly and is also properly installed. The safest place for a car seat, according to Wocl Leydon, is in the back seats. Car seats should never be placed in the front seat, and they should never be placed in front of an airbag. This can cause further injuries and even death to infants and young children.
Wocl Leydon, LLC also advises the public of when it is okay to stop using a car seat, and for how long you should keep your child buckled up in one. Car seats can be used as long as possible in terms of age, as long as the child’s height and weight matches with the car seat. Children who continue to meet the height and weight of car seats can begin using seatbelts at the age of 13.
It is also very critical to know of the common mistakes people make with car seats that can lead to injuries or worse, casualties. These mistakes include improper belt placement, incorrect installation, and allowing older children to buckle themselves in. Another make people tend to make is not registering their car seat with the manufacturer and with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to receive recall notices about the product. It is very important that parents always value their child’s safety over shortcuts, even if that means taking a little extra time to leave during the day.
With almost three decades of experience under their belts, the attorneys at Wocl Leydon have seen enough heartbreak to know that safety should be the number one priority when it comes to car travelling. If your child has been injured or has lost their life in a car accident due to a recalled car seat, you may be able to file a defective product lawsuit alongside a wrongful death claim. Car accidents are among the most common reasons for injuries and death. With this, they are developing simple solutions that can make a big difference for car owners.The best way to avoid this unfortunate outcome, however, is to be prepared and take all the necessary precautions.
