Protect Children from Injury by Using Infant Gear Properly

By Grant Law Office on March 21, 2012

Child Safety GeorgiaInfants and toddlers are at a high risk of injury because they lack the kind of balance and body control needed to move through the world safely, and they also don’t understand that many common household situations can cause harm. Infants can also be harmed if equipment intended to protect their safety, like car seats and straps on high chairs, is not used properly. Approximately 1.3 million infants are injured each year by defective or improperly-used infant equipment, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

To reduce the risk of child injury, always follow the instructions on all infant gear and equipment, says the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Be especially careful when using infant seats in vehicles. Rear-facing infant seats placed in the backseat are safest for small babies, but they must be securely and properly strapped to the backseat and the infant must be securely and properly strapped into the seat for maximum protection in a crash.

When infant products are used properly, most will protect babies from harm instead of causing it. However, a defective infant product might have a hidden condition that can cause harm even when parents follow its instructions to the letter. If your child or a child you care for is injured by a defective infant product, call The Law Offices of Wayne Grant, P.C. today. Our well-trained Atlanta defective product injury attorneys can help you protect your legal rights and seek compensation to help your child recover.
