Damage to Car Seat After an Accident

Why a car seat is possibly damaged now You have your car repaired after an accident, but you cannot have a car seat repaired. Replacing your child’s safety device is the safest option after an accident. People often assume with no immediate signs of damage to a car seat, it is still properly functional.
