Raymond R. Hassanlou has been the leading personal injury attorney for a wide variety of clients throughout the San Fernando Valley for many years. According to an article published February 9th on KBTX, when 30,000 car seats were inspected across one section of Texas, it was discovered that 99% of them were not installed correctly. Commenting on this article, Los Angeles based personal injury attorney Raymond R. Hassanlou notes that, although parents who put their children in car seats have the right idea in mind in obeying the law and the latest safety recommendations, they must also ensure that the child is correctly buckled in order to ensure the maximum level of safety.

While the availability of car seat inspection services varies from area to area, Mr. Hassanlou notes that in order to reduce the rate of serious injury to infants and young children, it would be a wise idea for drivers across the nation to have their car seats inspected to ensure that they have been installed properly. Mr. Hassanlou explains that, in American society where cars are king, auto accidents are all too common. The attorney notes that over 6 million car crashes occur each year in the US, injuring millions and causing nearly 40,000 untimely deaths annually. Mr. Hassanlou applauds every parent who takes all necessary precautions to prevent needless injury with the correct use of car seats. Alongside this, he explains other ways of reducing risks on the road:

  • Be attentive – In today’s age where we rely on electronic gadgets more than ever, many drivers must make the choice to ignore their buzzing cell phones and pagers while behind the wheel. Another too often overlooked issue, Mr. Hassanlou notes, is attempting to multi-task while driving; numerous commuters attempt to eat breakfast, apply lipstick, and even shave while at red lights. The attorney notes that these practices are never helpful, especially when drivers often need to make split-second decisions to avoid hazardous situations. Furthermore, Mr. Hassanlou explains that texting while driving is not only against the law, but extremely dangerous; “It can wait,” he advises.
  • Stay put – When driving with children in the vehicle, the utmost degree of caution is advised, notes Mr. Hassanlou. Drivers mustn’t allow children to fight, climb, or crawl around the car while the vehicle is motion because these actions can be distracting, the attorney notes. Secondly, Mr. Hassanlou notes that passengers should be buckled in at all times. By doing this, he notes, drivers will not only avoid costly traffic tickets, but potentially avoid severe injury in the event of an accident.

Mr. Hassanlou adds that in the event of an injury in an auto accident where the other party appears to be at fault, those injured should consider contacting a personal injury lawyer to ensure that they get the compensation they deserve.
