From the time your new baby comes home from the hospital, until they are driving with their own driver's license, parents need to learn how to maximize their kids' safety in the car.  At each stage, kids are at risk in different ways. 

Most parents don't know how to use their infant or young child's car seat correctly.  Too many school-aged kids are in danger because they don't use booster seats.  Some kids are in danger from air bags because they ride in front seat before they are big enough to do so safely.  Inexperienced teenage drivers are often overtired, driving under the influence, overly confident in their abilities, or aren't paying attention because they're distracted by their friends, cell phones and food.

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of accidental death for all young people from one-year-old babies through teens.  Too many motor vehicle deaths and injuries could have been prevented. 

The American Academy of Pediatrics can help you get started on how to shop for and correctly install a car seat.  Keep your child in a car seat for the longest recommended time.  Don't "graduate" them before they are both the recommended age and weight. 

The Bellevue, Washington office of the Andrew Kim Law Firm, PLLC represents adults and children seriously injured in any motor vehicle accidents.  If you would like to talk to a personal injury attorney to see whether you have a case, please call us at 1-800-636-3676 or visit www.wainjurylaw.com.
