Three Out of Four Car Seats are Installed Improperly… Is Yours?

A car seat is one of the most important pieces of equipment you will ever buy for your child. Even if you buy the newest, most expensive seat, it won’t protect your child from sustaining serious injuries in a Pennsylvania auto accident if it isn’t installed properly.

Although child safety seats seem pretty straightforward and easy to install, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that nearly three out of four parents do not install or use their child restraint properly. Even if you feel confident about the installation and use of your child seat, it doesn’t hurt to get a second opinion from a professional. A safety inspection may be the key in saving your child’s life. 

If you would like to have your child seat inspected to ensure it is properly installed and is appropriate for your child, visit a car seat inspection station in your area.

In order to make sure your child is as safe as possible, the Pennsylvania accident attorneys at Cordisco & Saile also suggest that you follow the child restraint guidelines that have been established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
