Child Safety Seat Defects

Wisconsin law requires most children under the age of 8 to sit in a safety or booster seat while riding in a car in order to protect them in the event of a collision. Parents purchase and install these seats with the expectation that they will function as intended. Regrettably, however, many child car seats are improperly made, marred by defects that can expose a child to an increased risk of severe injury.

Common Types of Defects

A car seat is made to protect your child, but if the seat is improperly made your child is much more likely to be severely injured in the event of a car accident. Due to manufacturer negligence, a child safety seat may be defective in a variety of ways. These may include:

  • Deficient materials used in making the car seat
  • Unstable harness straps
  • Improperly made chest clips
  • Incorrect assembly of the car seat

The damage caused by defective car seats can be immeasurable and life-changing, and a family should not have to bear this without recompense.
