Booster seats are designed to protect small children from injuries in auto accidents. Unfortunately, they are often found to be unsafe due to manufacturing or design defects and subsequently recalled. Common complaints include:
• They are not crashworthy and don’t sufficiently protect children in the event of an auto accident
• Flammable upholstery material has been used
• Seats contain small pieces that could present choking hazards
• Lack of clear, easy to use instructions for seat usage
Complaints have also been made alleging that manufacturers fail to point out the importance of fastening a booster seat even when it is not occupied, creating a situation in which an unsecured seat can become a projectile during an accident.
