The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is proposing improved safety standards for child car seats so that they can better protect children in the event of a T-bone car accident.
The NHTSA is expecting to release their final proposal on Wednesday, January 29 after they evaluate simulated crash test results. The simulated crashes will mostly test side-impact car accidents at a speed of 30 mph. Sleds and dummies will be used to draw results from the accident impact.
Research trends show that children are most likely to become injured in car accidents when the car is passing through an intersection. The NHTSA estimated that upgrading car seat safety will contribute to a lower child injury and death rate.
Unfortunately children involved in car crashes often sustain serious injuries. The legal team at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C., works for people in Wisconsin when they have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence. Call 800-242-2874 to speak with a member of our legal team.
