Articles Tagged with safety recalls

sharon-mccutcheon-5BRIjMTKFkU-unsplash-copy-300x200We often read information about auto product recalls in Escondido that could result in serious injuries in a car accident, or information about child car seat safety. Yet it is not especially common to hear about a car that has been recalled for a safety defect related to child car seats. According to a recent article in Consumer Reports, that is precisely what is happening with a current BMW recall. The report indicates that “BMW of North America is recalling 32,760 vehicles from its 2015 to 2019 model years because the lower rear-seat anchor bars at the seat crease used to secure a child car seat may become damaged.” In other words, if a child is strapped into a car seat in one of these vehicles and a car crash happens, the vehicle may not properly hold the car seat. Accordingly, a child strapped into the car seat could sustain injuries that otherwise might have been prevented. 

What follows is everything you need to know about the recall. If your child has already been injured because of a defective auto part, you should discuss your case with a car accident lawyer in Escondido.

Details of the Recall

Child car seatIt is always concerning when we hear about a product recall, especially when that product has been linked to serious injuries or even deaths. However, product recalls often are even more upsetting when they involve products that we have purchased with the expectation that they will be safe for our children’s use. We expect quite a lot of kids’ products, and we should be able to presume that a child’s car seat or an infant cup will not cause preventable injuries to our children. However, as a recent article from Safe Kids Worldwide reports, there were two major recalls of children’s products last month alone. Failing to pay attention to these safety defects could result in serious and even life-threatening injuries to your child.
