There is nothing more terrifying than the injury of your child. To prevent our children from being injured in automobile accidents, we use approved Florida car seats. Unfortunately, some of these car seats are poorly produced and ill-prepared for an actual crash.
If your child has been injured in an accident despite using a car seat, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact an experienced Personal Injury Lawyer at Fetterman & Associates for assistance and representation. We care deeply about the health and safety of your family. Call our office at (561)-845-2510 for a free case evaluation.
According to state law, when riding in an automobile:
In addition to these laws, all children between the ages of six and 18 must wear seat belts. The “supervising adult” is responsible for ensuring these rules are followed. Failure may result in a fine and points against your license.
There are four major types of car seats, including prenatal, rear-facing, front-facing, and booster.
Using your Florida car seat properly is essential. Read instructions carefully and ensure the harness fits correctly. The harness should be snug, allowing a single finger underneath. Avoid covers or positioners that are not sold with the car seat. They could become a hazard in the event of an accident.
When you choose the right car seat for your child – and install that car seat properly – you protect yourself from blame should the car seat fail. Instead, you’ll be able to hold the manufacturer responsible for damage done to your family.
