Airbags can and do save lives. However, they can be dangerous to some passengers, especially children. If your child was injured in a car accident that was the result of someone else’s negligence, compensation may be available.
Child airbag injuries can be especially severe in children and may lead you to file a child injury claim for medical bills, pain and suffering, and other losses. To learn if you have a valid claim, contact anAtlantachild injury lawyer today.
Here are 4 airbag safety rules that can help protect children:
- if the child is old enough to sit in the front seat, make sure he or she is sitting upright and as far back as possible;
- never place a rear-facing child safety seat in the front seat, especially if there's an airbag;
- children who are not in a booster seat should wear lap and shoulder belts; and
- for children under the age of 13, the rear seat is safest.
Following these safety rules could protect your child from serious airbag injuries. However, he or she may still suffer damage if someone else causes a serious car accident. Learn your legal options.
