arizona child seat safety | Phoenix Personal Injury Law Blog - Breyer Law Offices, P.C.
As Tucson personal injury attorneys, we want to remind parents and caregivers that there are more seat belts than just those found in cars. Parents concentrate on buckling their child correctly into cars, and for good reason. However, they don’t take other seat belts as seriously. For example, many parents place their children in high chairs, strollers, shopping carts, wagons, and swings without properly buckling them in. We wanted to share some tips on how to properly buckle your child to minimize a risk of injury. Here are our tips:
- If there is a seat belt, use it. Many parents set their children in seats and don’t strap them in. The seat belt is there for a reason and can protect the child from falling.
- Adjust the seat belt to fit your child. Make sure it is tight around the child’s waist and shoulders. If it is only a lap belt, stay with your child at all times. Lap belts do not keep the child’s upper body from collapsing, which can cause them to topple out of the belt or cause the whole chair or swing to fall over.
