Keeping children safe around motor vehicles

Most parents would do anything they could to keep their children safe. While people may focus on preparing their home for a young child, cars can be dangerous for the youngsters as well, even when it is not being driven at a high speed. As it turns out, even when it is parked at home.

To keep children and motor vehicles interacting in a healthy manner there are several things that parents or adults in charge can do. This includes locking the car when at home--even when it is in the garage--so that the child can't get trapped in it. It also includes making sure that a second look is taken upon reaching your destination and exiting the car to make sure you did not forget about your children.

When it comes to child safety while driving, it is important to focus on purchasing a vehicle that has certain safety features. These include:

  • Auto reverse power on doors and windows
  • Rearview cameras
  • Transmission shift interlock
  • Rear seat belt reminder

In addition, children should be properly secured in the back seat of the vehicle with age-appropriate car seats as needed. Should a car accident occur, the use of a car seat and these safety features could make a big difference in the outcome of the collision.

When motor vehicle crashes that result in injuries to children do occur, parents may explore filing a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible party to secure compensation. A lawyer can help determine whether such an action makes sense.
