U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood has urged car makers to crash-test child safety seats in their vehicles so we have data to recommend which child restraints are the safest in each auto.  The proposed “new system would be a victory for parents who struggle to find the best car seats for their children.” LaHood said, “What I’d like to talk to the car manufacturers about is the idea that they get some seats, they put them in their car, they crash test them so they can tell people ‘This is the best seat for this model car.’”

If you have questions about which child safety seat is the right one for your child you can review the Car Seat Guide published by the American Academy of Pediatrics. The five star rating system for child car seats is explained at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) website.  You can also file a complaint about your child’s car seat with NHTSA.

Safety must be the top priority. We specialize in fighting for justice for those who are injured when companies and individuals ignore safety or make unsafe decisions, including trucking accidents and reckless bus operation.  Call the law firm of Regan Zambri & Long directly at (202) 463-3030 if you need to find out more about your rights.
