If you are considering a lawsuit loan against an accident claim, contact LawLeaf today. We provide services throughout the United States.

Latest Recall from NHTSA

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is alerting consumers of a recall involving 13,792 Evenflo Maestro child safety seats. In the event of a crash, a crack could form at the front of the seat, adjacent to the harness adjuster, causing the child to be improperly restrained.

Evenflo is recalling the child seats with model numbers beginning with 310. Those include 3101198; 3101980; 31011048; 31011049; 31011059 produced between November 24, 2009, and April 9, 2010. The model number and the manufacture date are located on a label on the side of the car seat/carrier.

To fix the problem, Evenflo is providing consumers with a metal reinforcement plate to provide additional structural support in the area of the harness adjuster. Owners of the affected seats should contact Evenflo at (1-800-233-5921) immediately to obtain a free reinforcement plate. The seat should not be used with children weighing under 40 pounds without the repair bracket. Children who weigh more than 40 pounds can continue to use the seat as a belt-positioning booster until the remedy kit arrives.

Parents and caregivers are also encouraged to sign up with NHTSA to automatically receive updates about child seat recalls via e-mail.

Dorel Recalling Child Safety Seats

Dorel Juvenile Group (DJG) is recalling their child safety seats. The reason for the recall is because the harness lock and release button does not always return to its locked position. A button that is not in the locked position can allow the harness adjustment strap to slip back through the adjuster as a child moves around in the seat and results in a loose harness, increasing the risk of being injured a motor vehicle accident.

DJG said the problem involves certain restraint systems manufactured from May 1, 2008, through April 30, 2009, which have a “Center Front Adjuster” (CFA) for the harness. These include infant, convertible, and booster child restraint systems which were sold both as stand-alone seats or part of a travel system (with a stroller).

DJG said it intends to provide consumers with a remedy kit consisting of a small tube of non-toxic, food-grade lubricant to be applied to the CFA to prevent sticking and allow it to properly engage the CFA strap. Instruction on how to apply the lubricant will be provided, along with a label to indicate that the repair has been completed.

Until the remedy has been applied, consumers can continue to use the seats, however, parents and caregivers should make sure the harness is properly adjusted and the lock/release button is fully in the locked position. After adjustment, pull on the shoulder part of the harness to make sure it is secure and does not loosen.

NHTSA began a formal investigation of this issue on March 5, 2010, and indicated it would continue to keep the investigation open to further evaluate the adequacy of the recall scope.
