In our years of personal injury work, cases involving children hurt in car crashes are always among the most emotionally difficult, especially when a car or truck accident results in a wrongful death. Last year, we shared news of a study in the Journal of Pediatrics that estimated that 43% of the children who died in car accidents between 2010 and 2014 were not properly restrained.
Proper restraint can’t prevent every death, but it can certainly make a difference in many cases, especially in limiting injury. To help, we recently found this terrific safety guide on the “Parenting Pod” website.
We encourage parents and grandparents to be as careful as possible when setting up their car seats, and when in doubt, you can always seek help through your local police and fire departments. Many have monthly safety checks available to the public, so call or search online for one near you.
