In honor of National Child Passenger Safety Week and in cooperation with the Arvada Fire Department, we at The Gilbert Law Group wanted to give parents some important information about selecting car seats and making sure they are appropriately installed.
Car seats reduce infant fatality risk by 71% and toddler fatality risk by 54%. Booster seats reduce the risk of serious injury for children aged 4-8 by 45%. With more than 650 children losing their lives in motor vehicle accidents each year (33% of whom were not buckled up), you can see how important choosing and using an appropriate car seat for your child can be.
Keep your child safe! We encourage you to check with your local fire departments for car seat installation inspections.
Check back for additional videos and information coming later this week.
At The Gilbert Law Group we are dedicated to fighting for the safety of our children. If your child has been injured in an accident, please call (303) 431-1111 today or contact The Gilbert Law Group for your consultation with an experienced injury attorney.
