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.
If your child has been hurt due to a flawed safety seat, we can help you to hold a negligent manufacturer accountable. Contact the Lake Geneva car seat defect attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874 today.
