Cedar Rapids Child Car Seat Defect Attorney
Automobile manufacturers design their vehicles for the adults who will purchase and drive them, not for the small children who ride around as their parents shuttle them about through the early years of life. It is an unfortunate economic reality because it means that cars are not built to ensure the safety of the littlest passengers. Children’s car seats have helped to lessen this safety gap, but it is not always the case that child car seats prevent injury. In some instances, car seats are directly responsible for causing children harm or for worsening the seriousness of injuries sustained.
If your family has been affected by a defective child car seat, the attorneys at the Leehey Olson Law, P.C. want to fight for your justice. Your child’s safety should never have been endangered by a negligent manufacturer, and we can help you to hold them accountable.
Common Car Seat Defects
The thought of your child being hurt is horrifying, and when it comes to pass, the deeply emotional response that one feels can be overwhelming. When that injury occurs because a manufacturer failed to design or properly build a safety seat, it is natural to feel anger and tremendous upset. However, a cooler head must prevail so that you can ensure that your child’s medical bills and other needs are adequately compensated.

- Defective Buckles
