Defective Child Safety Seat - Removed from Market — In 1994, a Canadian company (Dorel) started manufacturing a defective child safety seat and selling it throughout
the US. The problem with the booster seat was that it was made of cheap plastic that could not withstand
the forces exerted on it during a serious crash. Since Dorel started selling the cheap booster seats, children
had been being seriously injured or killed during car wrecks. As a result of Dorel's investigations of these
wrecks and as a result of their own laboratory testing, they knew that the seats were dangerous and defect-
ive. In 1999, a vehicle hydroplaned and came to rest sideways in the highway. The driver's 4 year old grandson
sat in a Dorel Booster Seat. A van came along and failed to stop to avoid a collision and struck the grandmothers
vehicle, causing the little boy to be ejected from the booster seat. He then crashed through
the rear window and flew through the air, eventually landing on his chin in the grassy median. He suffered
a neck injury that paralyzed him and made him ventilator dependent. As a result of his injuries, he needed 24/7
medical care. We sued the manufacturer for making and selling a product that they knew was defective.
After 4 years of intense litigation, a settlement was reached wherein the defendants paid the little boy enough
money so that he would always have the things that he needed. The defendants also agreed to remove the
defective child safety seat from the marketplace.
