Special Car Seats Make A Difference For North Carolina Family

May 31, 2012

Most parents know the importance of restraining their children in a car safety seat any time they ride in a vehicle. But what should you do if your child is physically unable to use a car seat? According to WRAL News, that’s the case for one Holly Springs, North Carolina, family.

The couple has two children who were born with hip dysplasia, a condition in which the joints of the hips develop out of socket. The condition is usually treated with a special harness, but the girls’ conditions were more serious and required surgery and a body cast to correct the problem; however, the cast left the girls unable to ride in a normal child’s car seat.

“Diapering and transportation are huge issues…we couldn’t go out to eat. We didn’t see family members that were far away,” said the girls’ father.

Luckily, the UNC Hospitals Children’s Clinic was able to loan the family a specially designed car seat that was designed for children with this condition. “Just to be able to transfer your child safely in a car seat that you don’t have to go out and spend $500 on is really an extremely helpful thing,” their father added.

The North Carolina Personal Injury Lawyers with HensonFuerst Injury Lawyers say that it’s important to make sure your child is in properly installed car seat to prevent injury in the event of a North Carolina Auto Accident.
