Statewide California Child Restraint Defects Attorneys
Any attorney will not do in a case like this. Having an attorney that is specialized in baby seat injuries is needed to bring the case to a fitting conclusion. Having an attorney that understands the inner workings of injury law revolving around these types of issues will give you the advantage that you need in court.
Since children are smaller than adults, these types of seats are necessary. Kids that are not in baby seats or boosters can be seriously injured in a car accident. California law requires that children under six years or sixty pounds must be secured in a child car seat or passenger restraint.
When the child safety device works properly, it can be a lifesaver. If it is manufactured poorly or malfunctions it could cause serious injury or wrongful death.

The Law Requires Certain Things
California law now requires that vehicle manufacturers are required to install a latch child seat-tethering system– which are two anchors located at the top and bottom of the back seating. This ensures that such a child seat or booster will be properly secured. Auto safety research also shows that children under six years of age or sixty pounds will not have the same protection they would need in case of a serious accident. State laws recognize that children grow at different rates and placed both factors as components of their child safety seat law.
Parents that follow state guidelines often protect their children from serious harm. However, faulty seats or other severe issues could cause problems for the whole family.
