Our children are precious cargo. That is why we ensure that they are properly secure in their car seats when we hit the road. We all understand that a Bucks County car accident can happen at any time, putting you and your children at risk of being seriously injured.
Car Accidents and Children
You may not be aware how dangerous car accidents are for kids. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):
- Car crashes are the leading cause of death for children older than three.
- Approximately 179,000 children are injured annually in the U.S. due to auto accidents.
The Impact of Car Seats
The good news is that studies show that properly used car seats can be life-savers. The CDC reports that car seats:
- Reduce the chances of death for infants by 71 percent.
- Reduce the chances of death for toddlers between 1 and 4 by 54 percent.
Make Sure Your Child is Properly Secured
Studies have also concluded that not all children are properly secured. Refer to state laws and your car seat manufacture’s guidelines for more information.
