Our firm organized the fourth annual Seat Check Saturday event last month in partnership with Safe Kids USA and the Alabama Department of Public Health. The event, held on Saturday, September 28, provided parents and child caregivers an opportunity to have their child safety seats installed or inspected at no cost. Qualified seat installation experts inspected 50 child safety seats from 9 a.m.-noon at The Shoppes at EastChase in Montgomery. This was part of National Seat Check Saturday, with similar events held throughout the country.
As we have previously reported, motor vehicle accidents remain the leading cause of death for children ages 3 to 14. Properly installed car seats and booster seats reduce the risk of serious and fatal injuries by more than half. LaBarron Boone, a lawyer in our firm’s Personal Injury/Product Liability Section, had this to say:
We are proud to say we have inspected more than 200 child safety seats during the last four years. Beasley Allen is committed to helping keep our children safe by promoting Seat Check Saturday. Do not wait until it’s too late to find out your child’s seat is not properly installed.
Safety of small children, especially when riding in automobiles, is very important and is a top priority for parents. When you consider the information set out below, you will see how serious this matter is:
