Birmingham Child Car Seat Defects Lawyers
When parents buckle their child into a car seat, they should be able to expect a certain degree of extra protection for their son or daughter while on the road. However, sometimes design or manufacturing defects prevent child car seats from adequately protecting children, potentially leading to worsened injuries or even death in the event of car accidents. In these devastating situations, parents have the right to seek financial compensation from the child car seat designer or manufacturer at fault.
