CHILD SAFETY SEATS-HOW SAFE?


Parents expect safety seats to protect a child from injury or death, and safety seats are required in all 50 states, but do they protect children well enough? A well designed seat will prevent injuries and death, but when they barely comply with federal standards the seats can cause death and life altering injuries. Manufacturers of safety seats have used  power and financial resources to limit the governments ability to improve “minimum standards” and have “delayed any revisions” that would protect our children.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) proposed new regulation to minimize the injuries and death cause by the poorly designed safety seat in side impacts. The “industry” went out and hired former NHTSA chief counsel to convince the NHTSA to retract any proposed rule regarding side-impact testing. Because of this the “industry” has avoided any cost of “producing a better product” and has held fast to this “greed-driven philosophy”.

If the “industry” just complied with federal standard, consumers will believe that the safety seats are safe. However, the philosophy of the industry has threatened our children. In side-impact crashes alone, children have suffered 3,630 non fatal injuries per year from 1993 to 2000 and a total of 91 fatalities in 1999.

The Schmidt Law Firm has 30 years experience, in over 6,000 successful cases, of bring justice to the victims of personal injury and wrongful death.  This includes successful experience in cases involving injuries to children caused by car seats, cribs, play pens, playground equipment, and household chemicals.
