Child Harmed by a Defective Car Seat: How to Recover Compensation?

As a parent, your child’s safety is of the utmost importance. With that in mind, the products you purchase for your child must be safe, especially the products that are meant to protect them, like car seats. If your child was harmed by a defective car seat, you can pursue justice and recover compensation by filing a personal injury claim with the help of a trusted lawyer.

The personal injury lawyers at the Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe, LLP have more than 100 years of combined experience helping clients in New York understand their options after their child is injured by a defective car seat. It is essential to understand your rights regarding taking legal action and recovering compensation for your child’s injuries and losses. 

How Can You Prove Liability After a Defective Car Seat Causes Your Child Harm?

Child car seat injury cases can be complicated when it comes to proving liability and pursuing justice for the harm your child has suffered. This is often due to the lack of adequate safety standards for manufacturers of child car seats. In fact, there are currently no industry-wide requirements for safe performance in a child car seat in the event of a rear-end collision, side-swipe car crash, or rollover accident

To ensure you are able to get justice for your child’s case and prove the liability of the manufacturer that made the defective car seat, it is important you have the help of a legal professional. When you work with a trusted lawyer, they can launch a full investigation into your child’s case and collect all necessary evidence to show that the manufacturer’s negligence led to your child’s injury. To prove that the manufacturer is responsible for your child’s injury that resulted from a defective car seat, your lawyer will collect evidence of the four factors of negligence. The four factors of negligence are as follows:

  • The manufacturer owed your child a duty of care
  • The duty of care was breached
  • The breach of duty led to your child’s injury
  • You suffered losses as a result

To get help understanding how you can prove the liability of the manufacturer who made the defective car seat in your child’s injury case, contact an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to ensure you can get justice.
