Protect your children in a crash with these car seat safety tips

Being a parent means putting the welfare and the safety of your children first. This applies in every area of their lives, from cutting their food up so they don’t choke, to warning them of stranger danger and of course whilst you’re traveling in the family car. 

Of course, you may be a cautious and wary driver, however, that won't always prevent you from being in a car accident. And if the accident resulted in severe injuries caused by someone else’s negligence, you should visit to hire a car accident lawyer who can help you secure compensation for all the damage you beared. How much is my Georgia car accident claim worth? Click the link to speak to a personal injury lawyer, now. 

However, there are ways you can keep your child safe whilst you're driving and increase their chances of survival and walking away from the accident injury-free. And that is where their car seat comes in. Having a good quality, and properly fitted car seat will ensure your child stands a better chance of being unscathed. 

Here I’ve gathered some simple car seat safety tips that will help you protect your child. Read on to find out more. 

Never use a damaged seat

Is the car seat in good condition? If you have an old car seat or one that was previously involved in a crash, then you should consider investing in a new one. Car seats have many mechanisms and components that work together to keep your child protected. However, if these parts become damaged, then the integrity of the seat could be questionable, and it may not work the way it is supposed to in the event of a crash. This damage may be obvious, or it may not be visible, either way if your current seat is damaged replace it immediately.  

Say no to second hand

Having kids is expensive, so it makes sense to try and save money where you can. Hand me downs and second-hand baby items are a great way to save on the essentials. However, one area where you shouldn’t consider buying second hand is the car seat. Older models may no longer meet current safety standards, they could have been recalled for safety issues or again, or they could be damaged. You can still pick up a reliable and safe car seat at a budget-friendly price, just make sure you shop around. 

Arrange a fitting

If you’re buying a new car seat, then purchase it from a company that also provides a free fitting service. This fitting demonstration will ensure you’re comfortable with fitting the seat yourself and it’s done correctly from the moment it’s purchased. If you forget how to fit the seat or you’re worried you’ve done it wrong, you can always take it back to the store for a refresher.

And finally, always fasten them in!

Did you know that the majority of car accidents happen within 5 miles of home? So, whether you’re driving to Grandma’s or just popping to the store for some milk, always ensure your child is correctly fastened into their car seat. It’s the best way to ensure their safety in the event of a crash.
