Britax recall sets alarm for Louisiana consumers

States like Louisiana have laws regarding the use of baby car seats. From birth to age one, children must be rear facing, until he or she weighs 20 or more pounds. Once a child turns one, he or she must be faced forward. This regulation continues until age 4. From age 4 to 6, or 40 to 60 pounds, a belt-positioning booster seat is required for all children. Six-year-old children who weigh at least 60 pounds must use a safety belt or a belt-positioning booster must be used.

In some Louisiana vehicles, parents utilize Britax car seats. Parents should pay close attention to the make and model of their car seats. Britax is currently executing a 37 model recall. The cause of the recall is a defect that may prevent a harness from locking the child into the seat. The models in question were manufactured between Aug. 1, 2014, and July 29, 2015. Any consumer who is concerned about their car seat should contact the Britax website or emailing the company at [email protected].

A properly manufactured car seat is critical to the safety of any child who rides in a car. A defective product can cause permanent damage to an individual. The company that manufactures the defective product may be liable to any injured consumer.

Louisiana residents who have been injured by a defective product may seek legal counsel to determine their rights. An attorney can assess your case to determine the best way to recover for lost wages and medical expenses in a product liability case.
