Defective Car Seats

When you place your child into a car seat, it is your expectation that it will protect your child from harm. Unfortunately, a manufacturer’s negligence can lead to a defective car seat entering the market which could potentially cause great harm to your infant or child. In North Carolina, there is legal recourse available for parents of children who have been injured by defective infant car seats.

Has your child been injured due to a defective infant car seat? Contact North Carolina attorney D. Hardison Wood regarding infant car seat recalls and car seat injury related issues today.

Infant car seat recalls have been issued because some products were causing the following injuries to children:

  • Cuts & Scrapes
  • Contusions
  • Choking Hazards
  • Concussions
  • Skull Fractures

And of course, the worst scenario of all is a child ejection from a car seat, or the car seat’s ejection from the vehicle.

As a result of some terrible incidents, several infant car seat recalls have been made over the years. In May of 2007, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued infant car seat recalls Evenflo Embrace infant car seats and carriers. Evenflo received 679 reports of the handle on the car seat unexpectedly releasing which resulted in 160 injuries to children ranging from skull fractures to concussions.

An injury to a child is any parent’s greatest fear. It is particularly troubling when something you have entrusted to protect your child is actually responsible for causing them harm. While an infant car seat recall may prevent future incidents, it can never repair the harm that has already been done. D. Hardison Wood serves all of the state of North Carolina in helping bring justice to those affected by a company’s defective and dangerous product. His firm maintains a blog dedicated to child safety and other North Carolina product liability issues, it can be viewed here.
