Senators Raise Concerns About Car Seat Collapses

USA Today  reports that Sens. Ed Markey (D-MA) and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) sent letter to 17 automakers writing, “There has been a long-standing concern that the (standard) … is not sufficient to mitigate injury or death of a rear-seat occupant due to seat back collapse in a rear-end collision.” Markey and Blumenthal highlighted that children are particularly vulnerable to front seat back failures. The senators also “said the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration proposed changing the rules for seating system standards in 1974, but it was never finalized.”

From the news release of the American Association for Justice.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
