While most baby seats are safe, there have been terrifying examples over the last several years. So these examples show the need for the utmost safety for our children. Many parents don’t realize the potential harm to children that poorly made baby seats and boosters can be. A poorly manufactured restraint device can lead to severe injury or fatality. Also, kids can even die in low-speed crashes.

Statewide California Child Restraint Defects Attorneys.

Any attorney will not do in a case like this. But having a lawyer specialized in baby seat injuries is needed to bring the matter to a fitting conclusion. Having an attorney that understands the inner workings of injury law is the first step.

Injured victims need a representative whose expertise revolves around these types of issues. Such a lawyer like Michael Ehline will give you the advantage you need in court.

Since children are smaller than adults, these types of seats are necessary. Kids not in baby seats or boosters can get seriously injured in a car accident.

California law requires sure children to remain secured in a child car seat or passenger restraint as follows:

Current California Law:

  • Children under 2 years of age shall ride in a rear-facing car seat unless the child weighs 40 or more pounds OR is 40 or more inches tall. The child shall be secured in a manner that complies with the height and weight limits specified by the manufacturer of the car seat. (California Vehicle Code Section 27360.)

  • Children under the age of 8 must be secured in a car seat or booster seat in the back seat.

  • Children who are 8 years of age OR have reached 4’9” in height may be secured by a booster seat, but at a minimum must be secured by a safety belt. (California Vehicle Code Section 27363.)

  • Passengers who are 16 years of age and over are subject to California’s Mandatory Seat Belt law.

The Law Requires Certain Things.

California law now requires vehicle manufacturers to install a latch child seat-tethering system. So these are two anchors located at the top and bottom of the back seating. Also, this ensures that a child seat or booster will be adequately secured.

Plus, auto safety research shows that children under six years of age or sixty pounds will not have the same protection they need. So in the case of a severe accident, they may not be safe. State laws recognize children grow at different rates. So they placed both factors as components of their child safety seat law.

Parents that follow state guidelines help to protect their children from serious harm. However, faulty seats or other severe issues could cause problems for the whole family. Ehline Law has the know-how to hold the safety restraint maker responsible in cases of their negligence.
