Accident solicitor in Barnstaple


The accident solicitor in Barnstaple team have to deal with some very upsetting situations. Serious and fatal accidents, where the injured person was not at fault for the accident, are perhaps the most upsetting. Dealing with accidents involving injured children is also very stressful.

They also know that securely restraining a child in a car can significantly reduce the severity of the injuries that they will suffer if an accident should occur. Accident Advice Helpline’s accident solicitor in Barnstaple team have dealt with many accidents where children’s lives have been saved by correctly fitted car seats and seat belts. Here’s an overview of the type of car seats that have saved children in some accident solicitor in Barnstaple cases.

Accident solicitor in Barnstaple cases – rear facing baby seats

These are usually the seats that babies are first placed in when they are very young. Many Barnstaple babies make their first journey home from the hospital in this type of seat. As the name suggests, they face the back of the car. They tend to be used in the back of cars because they cannot be used if there is a front seat air bag. They are a safe way for young babies to travel. If an accident solicitor in Barnstaple case were to occur and another vehicle hit your car then your baby’s head, neck and spine will be afforded the greatest protection possible. They are fixed into position using the cars own seat belt system.

Accident solicitor in Barnstaple cases – forward facing child seat

This is often the second type of seat that your baby will use and parents tend to buy them as their baby is outgrowing the rear facing seats. These seats have an integral harness which covers a large surface area of the child’s body – this reduces the severity of injury. There is usually an attachment that goes in between the child’s legs so that they cannot slip out of the harness during a crash. The seat is usually fixed into position using the cars own safety belt system so it is important to check that this does not become undone.

Accident solicitor in Barnstaple cases – booster seats and cushions

These are usually the final child car restraints that children use. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes and the child is restrained by the cars own safety belt system. The booster seats place the child’s body in a position that allows the safety belt to work effectively. However, the seat belt must be fitted around the child correctly. This means that the belt should be worn as tight as is possible, the lap belt should be across the pelvis and not across the abdomen and the diagonal belt should rest across the shoulder and not across the neck. There are weight ranges for different seats so always measure your child’s weight before you buy one. Booster seats with backs and side wings can provide children with greater protection should a collision occur.
