When it comes to having a child, parents will go to great lengths to keep their child safe. Before bringing an infant into the world, parents will often research various purchases, such as cribs and child safety seats, in order to find the best and safest brand on the market.
It makes sense, then, that a recall for something as important as a child safety seat can be quite alarming to any parent. Recently, Britax announced that it is recalling some 71,000 car seats across the country. The safety seats apparently have an issue with the handle. The carrying handle on these devices can apparently break, which could lead to an infant being dropped in his or her car seat.
The company says they have had one report of a child being injured due to the handle breaking. The child apparently got a bump on the head and suffered a bruise. The first complaint, according to the company, came last May, followed by other complaints.
In June, the company reportedly changed its design to improve the durability of the handle. They say no complaints have been filed since the change was made. If a consumer has a child seat model that is affected by the recall, the company will send out a kit and a tool that can help reinforce the handle. If a parent feels his or her child has been injured due to a faulty product, it’s important to discuss the case with an attorney in order to seek compensation for any injuries that may have stemmed from the faulty product.
