Child Safety in the Car
Whenever you are transporting a child in your vehicle, it is important to recognize that all of the safety features in your car are designed around an average size adult, and cannot be counted on to adequately protect a child in the event of an accident. Children are especially vulnerable to injuries when a car wreck occurs, and it is essential to take actions that protect them from the hazards of negligent drivers on the road.
If your child has been injured in an accident caused by a careless driver, you may be entitled to compensation for your resulting medical expenses and other damages.

Guidelines for Safe Transport
In order to keep your child safe in the car, follow these simple guidelines:
- Always have children under the age of 12 ride in the back seat of your car. Passenger airbags can be extremely dangerous when deployed on small children.
- Use restraints designed for your child’s age group and body type, and be sure they are properly installed and secured before departing.
- Never let a child use a safety belt without a belt modification system which allows you to adjust the safety device to a proper height. Otherwise the seat belt may fall across their neck which can cause serious injuries.
By taking these precautions, you can reduce the risk of injury to your child in the event of an accident.
