NHTSA improves child car seat safety

Posted on Tuesday, January 28th, 2014 at 12:38 pm    

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is proposing improvements to the safety of child car seats. Specifically, the NHTSA wants to provide extra protection to children in the event of side-impact collisions.

In the proposal, the NHTSA states that they will be testing car seats to see how they withstand side crashes at 30mph. The test will utilize sleds and dummies. According to research, car accidents that result in child fatalities and serious injuries tend to happen at intersections.

Many children in the United States are seriously injured in car crashes every year. If your child has suffered critical injury because of someone else’s negligence, you could be eligible to collect damage compensation.
