Buy child seats from reputable retailers
Although many child seats may be expensive, it is worth spending the extra money on a seat that you know has been rigorously tested and will provide the best protection in any potential accident. If you buy a seat online, make sure that it is from a well known retailer, and check out the reviews to find out how other customers have found the seat. If you decide to buy second hand, do your research first to check that the seat is a well known and safe brand, and will offer the best possible protection.
Choosing the right type of seat
There are various levels of child safety seats, and which of these is suitable for your child depends on your child’s weight and how big they are. You should be aware that you will probably have to buy a few child car seats as your child gets bigger, to offer them the best possible protection. The types of seats you can buy are:
- Infant carriers
- Child seats
- Booster seats
- Booster cushions
You will usually use all of these before your child is big enough to use a seat-belt on their own and be safe. Check your child’s weight and speak to a retailer about choosing the right car seat for them before you buy one, and it may be useful to buy the next size up as well so that you can switch easily as your child grows.
So for further advice on how to claim, if the need arises, be certain to call Accident Advice Helpline today.
