Car Seats Could Save Child’s Lives

A new study from Safe Kids Worldwide has concluded that one out of four parents polled has driven without using a proper age-appropriate safety restraint for their child. Parents who are higher income earners, better educated, and younger are the most likely to make the safety mistake.

According to the poll, parents had several excuses for not buckling their child up:

•They were too rushed
•They were just traveling a short distance
•They were driving at night
•They were rewarding a child by not having them buckle up

According to safety experts, though, there is no good excuse for not putting a child’s safety first. Child injuries in Hollywood and other cities are very common in car collisions and a car crashes can occur at any time, so it is always important to buckle up. Safety restraints can help prevent many types of serious injuries in a crash and can save a child’s life.

According to safety experts, children should be kept in age-appropriate safety restraint systems until they are about 4 feet nine inches and weigh at least 90 or 100 pounds. Depending on the weight and age of a child, these systems can include car safety seats or a combination of booster seat and seatbelt.

Do you know how to properly use a child car seat? According to some statistics, up to 80% of car seats are not used correctly. If you are not sure how to use your car seat or child safety restraint, read the instruction manual or check online to see video demonstrations. In many cases, police associations and other safety groups hold demonstrations and can teach parents how to keep their child safe in the car.

Whether you live in Hollywood or any surrounding South Florida area, child injuries and car accidents are among the most devastating incidents that can happen. Each year, families in Hollywood and other communities are ripped apart when their children are injured in traffic accidents. In many cases, severe injuries can be lessened or avoided entirely with the correct use of age-appropriate safety restraints.

Keep in mind, too, that even if you use a car seat or other child safety restraint correctly, defective car seats or cars can mean that children are injured. If you feel that your child has been injured in a car accident because of a defective product, you may have a product liability claim in Hollywood or your area. Speak with a personal injury attorney in your community in order to find out what options you may have. Acting now can help you pursue compensation that can help you pay for your child’s medical care and other costs so that they can make a full recovery.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
