How Do I Protect My Children from Defective Child Seats?

By The Law Office of WT Johnson on February 24, 2017

Recently, a wave of child seat manufacturers have announced recalls of their popular child seats due to defects that render the seats dangerous for young children. For instance, BMW recalled 622,000 X3 and X4 SUVs manufactured between 2011 and 2017 due to a defect in the anchor used to secure the child seat to the back seat of the SUV. According to BMW, some child seats have thick, inflexible connectors that damage the BMW anchor. While a parent may believe their child is safely secured, the seat may become detached from the anchor, which may then result in disastrous injuries to the child. To remedy the issue, BMW has offered to reinforce the anchor even if it has not yet been damaged.

In another recall, the company Baby Trend manufactures the Trendz Fastback child seat, which is a standard 3-in-1 seat with a harness buckle. According to the company, the buckle itself is defective because it becomes stuck in the locked position, rendering the child trapped in the seat. This creates an especially dangerous situation when the parent needs to quickly and safely remove the child from the seat during an emergency. Baby Trend plans to replace the buckles.

How to Build Your Claim After a Catastrophic Injury in Dallas

By The Law Office of WT Johnson on February 22, 2017

Catastrophic injuries are injuries that have the potential to destroy a person’s financial, emotional, or physical well-being. If you have suffered a catastrophic injury, and it’s due to the negligence or misconduct of someone else, you may be entitled to receive compensation for it. This can help you recover the costs of medical bills, loss of income, and more. However before you file your claim, you’ll need to build a pretty good case in order to get the most compensation possible. So, how do you do it?

The first thing you’ll need to do is get treatment for any injuries or wounds. This should be done even before you get a lawyer, because putting treatment off can further worsen your injuries. Be sure that you keep records of everything you receive at the hospital including any bills, reports, test results, and even the admission bracelet, as it can prove the date and time of admittance to the hospital. All of these documents can be used in court as proof of your injuries, and even that someone else’s negligence or misconduct caused them.
