Personal injury lawyer, Jason Neufeld, with the law firm of Neufeld, Kleinberg, and Pinkiert, P.A. has recently become a father to two handsome boys, Ethan Yves and Asher Lorne. In preparing for the arrival of the twins, Jason fervently searched the streets of Miami-Dade and South Broward County looking for a professional to check the installation of the rear facing infant car seats. To no avail, Neufeld discovered that his local fire and police departments, nor the local baby stores, conducted car seat inspections. He was pleased to discover that Joe DiMaggio’s Children’s Hospital frequently offers a free nationally certified child passenger safety technician to teach participants how to properly protect children in age- and weightappropriate car seats or booster seats.
The reason for Jason’s search for a certified safety technician is that many times, infant car seats are installed incorrectly by parents and it is critical for the safety of the child that all seats, including rear facing infant car seats, convertible car seats and booster seats, be properly installed.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, motor vehicle injuries are a leading cause of death among children in the United States. But many of these deaths can be prevented. Properly buckling children in age- and size-appropriate car seats, booster seats and seat belts reduces the risk of serious and fatal injuries by 71% for infants and 54% for toddlers. Not only do car seats save lives, children are required to be restrained by car seats under Florida law. Neufeld drove his precious cargo home with him on Mother’s Day 2014 and drove home confident that his children were fastened properly in his vehicle.
