Team-Tex America is recalling certain Babyride Infant child restraint systems (Model 374199) because the belt routing label with the “horizontal reference line” is incorrectly placed on the child restraint system. According to a report in the Auto Channel, these improperly routed belts could result in personal injury to the child during a crash. These defective child car seats were manufactured on December 18, 2008. Team-Tex has said that it will notify owners and mail labels along with instructions for proper placement of the label. This safety recall is expected to begin later this month. Anyone in need of more information is asked to contact Team-Tex at 1-877-912-1313.
Hundreds of children die each year in the United States because the child car seats are not properly placed in the vehicle. When that happens, children are not protected in the event of a car crash. But that said, any child car seat is still better than no car seat at all. Car seats save young lives just as seatbelts save thousands of lives each day in the United States. However, when these child car seats have defective parts, misleading information or mislabeling, then it becomes tough for parents to protect their children in the event of an car accident.
Defective baby seats have led to numerous personal injuries and deaths during traffic collisions and the manufacturers who produce such defective products must be held liable. Some of the product defects that may occur in baby seats include loose shoulder straps, flimsy parts, lack of proper pelvic protection, which allows the child to slide down in the seat during a car accident.
If your child has been injured or killed as a result of a defective child car seat, you should consult aggressive California product defect lawyers, who will protect your legal rights and recover the maximum monetary compensation for your losses. At Bisnar Chase, our goal is not just recovering money, but also to right a wrong and help facilitate a process where manufacturers are forced to improve the quality of the products they design and make. We want to remind them that safety is not an option. It should be their top priority.
