Car Seat Installation

Car seats are designed to protect young children in the event of an automobile accident; however, they only serve their function if they are properly installed. Many “short cuts” to installing a car seat can compromise the child's safety, and actually endanger them more than riding without a car seat.

If your child has suffered injuries because another person failed to properly install their car seat, they should be held accountable for their negligence. To discuss your grounds for filing a claim, contact the Phoenix personal injury attorneys of Haralson, Miller, Pitt, Feldman & McAnally, P.L.C. Call 800-763-0964 today to speak with a qualified attorney about your case.

LATCH versus Traditional

There are two types of car seats: ones that utilize the traditional seat belt installation and newer ones, which implement the LATCH system, or lower anchors and tethers for children. Both methods are equally safe when properly installed; however, the LATCH system is easier and faster than the seatbelt method.

To convert your vehicle to accommodating the LATCH system, take it to its manufacturer and have them install an anchor at the top and on either side of the car seat. Make sure you purchase a car seat that accommodates LATCH systems, as well.
