Car Seat Safety
March 28, 2011
A recent study found that A One-year-olds are five times less likely to be injured in a crash if they are in a rear-facing car seat than a forward-facing seat, according to a 2007 analysis of five years of U.S. crash data.
As a member of a firm that has significant experience helping young children recover from the wrongful acts of others, this information is particularly useful. The worst injuries are those that occur at a young age. Part of this reason is that a young child is forced to live with an injury much longer than an elderly person.
Spinal injuries and brain injuries are common results of vehicle accidents. Because these injuries are common and due to the fact that the skulls of our young children are still developing, there is even more of a reason to take caution when deciding how to A buckle up your young ones.

Please give this article a quick read as it puts forth some basic but very important precautions to take when driving with young children.
