What if my child was injured?
If your child was injured by a defective car seat you may consider legal action for those injuries. Over the last few years there have been many problems identified with car seats. Unfortunately, many car seats on the market may also be defective too. According to the CDC, “car seat use reduces the risk for death to infants (aged <1 year) by 71% and to toddlers (aged 1–4 years) by 54% in passenger vehicles.”
Who will be held liable?
If your child’s car seat is defective there are three parties that may be liable: the manufacturer, the retailer, or the wholesaler. If one of these parties are found liable for the defective car seat, your family may be entitled to a settlement. Some families may receive money for medical bills, pain and suffering, or possibly punitive damages. If your family lost a child from a car seat, there may be money to help get your family through this tough time.

How long do I have to file defective car seat lawsuits?
There are legal deadlines to filing just about any lawsuit. Statutes of limitations are essentially legal deadlines. They will affect how long you have to file a defective car seat lawsuit. Each state has its own statutes of limitations and where you live could affect how long you have to file a defective car seat lawsuit. Other things like when the injury occurred or when the product was bough could affect your time limit as well.
