The most devastating accidents are those in which a young child is injured. According to research, about two children die every day in the United States due to an accident.

Sometimes parents tend to underestimate the use of child safety seats, as well as their correct installation. However, this can be crucial when protecting a child from being hurt during an accident.

It is essential to make sure that the child seat is adapted to your child's needs and that when buying one or looking at the many models that exist in the market, you follow NHTSA's recommendations for car safety seats for children.

However, another factor that has been observed to play an essential role in accidents is that many of these seats are not installed correctly. It is estimated that around 46% of child safety seats and boosters are misused, reducing their effectiveness and leaving the infant more vulnerable to accidents.

If children travel without using a safety device, they will be more likely to suffer severe injuries. So you would think that in these times and after all the awareness campaigns about the use of the seat belt, everybody would use it. But, unfortunately, this is not the case, and it has been observed that in accidents where children did not wear seat belts, adults did not either.

Whenever you travel with a child under the age of 12, make sure that he or she is well secured either in a child seat, a booster seat or with the seat belt, according to his or her age. You can find out about the specifications that apply to each age on the NHTSA website.

Using the correct seat for children under three years of age reduces the risk of injury during a crash by 71-82%. Booster seats for children between the ages of 4 and 8 reduce the risk of injury by 45% during an accident. And for older children and adults, we know that a seatbelt reduces the risk of injury and death by 50%.

Those who have suffered serious injuries in an auto accident are encouraged to contact a trustworthy California car accident lawyer to help obtain compensation for your financial losses.
