Michigan Child Injury Lawyers Offer Advice on Car Safety

Our Michigan child injury lawyers advise parents that leaving a child unattended in a vehicle in winter is just as dangerous as leaving a child unattended in the summer.  Children have a lower body temperature than adults which could result in hypothermia and frostbite if left in a vehicle. Some may think it is safe, if it only for a second, and their vehicle is locked, but this is just as dangerous, as children have been abducted from the car in those “few seconds.”

 

As a parent you should be watching your child at all times. Many other reasons why keeping your child in the car is not a good idea include:

 

?         If the car is left running a child could play with buttons, not knowing what those buttons do could allow the car to start moving.

?         If the keys are in the car, the child may be able to start the car.

?         The seatbelt gives a high risk of strangulation if not supervised.

?         There could be toxic chemicals in the car that a child could get ahold of and ingest.

 

Our Michigan personal injury attorneys would like to stress the importance of never leaving a child unattended in a vehicle. Leaving your child in the car can not only be dangerous, but deadly as well. These dangers are real and should not be taken lightly. Don’t put your child at risk; never leave your child in the car alone.
