Samer Habbas, founder of the Law Offices of Samer Habbas, praises the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for issuing a proposal attempting to improve the protection offered to children in the event of a side collision.
The law requires parents and legal guardians to use appropriate car seats that meet certain standards in order to ensure the safety of young children. Most parents and legal guardians understand the importance of these laws and abide by the guidelines.
Legislatures and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) are constantly changing the rules regarding optimum usage to account for recent research findings to ensure the safety of children. This is illustrated by the recent news that the NHTSA will require a new safety test designed to reduce the threat of danger to children involved in sidecar collisions.
This news was featured in an article posted in the Associated Press titled "New Regs Sought For Child Car Seats." According to the article, the goal is to prevent children from coming into forceful contact with a crumpling vehicle interior or exposed to catastrophic forces when sideswiped.
The Orange County personal injury attorneys of the Law Offices of Samer Habbas are delighted with this latest development. Attorney Samer Habbas has witnessed the repercussions of accidents and understands that even the slightest improvement can have a huge ramification in the safety of young children traveling in cars.
"I applaud the NHTSA for taking the extra measures to improve the guidelines and make our children safer while traveling in automobiles," said Mr. Habbas. "While we may not be able to avoid every accident, we can definitely reduce the extent of possible injuries sustained by young children in car accidents by making car seats as safe as possible.
