Car Seat Defect Lawyer in California

Car seats are used to protect children and infants while traveling in the car and during a car accident. Unfortunately, even when taking the proper precautions, accidents and injuries can still occur. If a car seat isn’t made properly, it can hurt the child within it by either putting too much pressure on the wrong places or by throwing the infant from the seat entirely. Car seat companies typically deny liability and attempt to blame the injury on you or the car accident itself. Many people find that they need legal representation to get payment for medical bills and compensation for their child’s pain and suffering.

If you or your child has been injured in a car wreck involving a negligent driver or defective car seat, you have the right to pursue compensation for your damages. You won’t pay anything unless we successfully settle your case. Call 1-800-208-3538 to see how we can help.

Types of Car Seat Injuries

Car seat injuries range dramatically depending on the severity of the accident.

Injuries to children or infants may include:

If a child was killed as a result of negligence or a design flaw of the car seat, nothing could fully compensate for your loss. However, you can hold those who are responsible for the tragedy financially accountable for their actions by filing a wrongful death lawsuit.

California Car Seat Laws

Car seat manufacturers have a duty to their customers to ensure parents get a car seat that is safe and  free from defects. It’s possible to file different types of claims against a car seat manufacturer, and a lawyer can help you decide the right path for you. If the actual car seat is defective, it’s classified as products liability. If you believe your child’s injury was due to a lack of information from the car seat manufacturer, then you may be able to file under negligence.

Car Seat Recalls

Car seat defects may include faulty straps, poor latching system, poor seat design, faulty adjustment pieces and more. You don’t have to look very far to see real-life examples of car seat defects. Car seat manufacturer Graco recently recalled over 1,000 of their car seats due to a fault with their harnesses. Another manufacturer, Diono, recalled more than half a million car seats because they would not have adequately protected children during a crash. Either of these examples could lead to a product liability claim in the case of injury.

Are You Injured

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.

You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case.
