According to CBS Denver a mother had to cut a seat belt off her child to keep her from strangling to death after the seat belt malfunctioned. The mother strapped her child in the back seat and when she had returned to the car her child was wrapped in two seat belts and was unconscious. The woman had to rush into the nearby school and get a pair of scissors. The mother said that when she had tried to pull the seat belt back to get her child’s head and neck loose but it did not work, but instead the seat belt continued to tighten around the girls neck. According to the news report this is not a rare incident but a common occurrence, common not only among young children but also among older children and teens. Have you been seriously injured by a malfunctioning product that you commonly use? Contact a Denver product liability lawyer to see if you are entitled to financial compensation. The Automotive Safety Program reports seat belt strangulation is not an uncommon occurrence.  It is a common concern among many consumers, the frequency of a recalls for seat belts. Often a redesign of seat belts is suggested to fix this problem permanently. However, car companies believe that to fix this problem it is necessary to teach and educate parents on how to properly monitor children when they are in a vehicle. The ASP finds that what is causing children to become strangled in the safety belts is an interlocking mechanism. This is designed that when a sudden force is placed on the belt it will lock up to prevent a person from being ejected from the seat. However, what is currently happening is that children are pulling on the belt and causing the locking system to engage when the belt is around their neck. Then since it is not the same force of a car accident the belts continue to stay locked and retract the belt. It is this retraction process that is causing the children to strangle as the belt tightens. ASP believes that if parents don’t leave their children unattended in cars and maintained supervision over them that the children would not be able to get themselves in the dangerous situation of a being strangled by safety belts.

A friendly get-together between two families in Wisconsin turned tragic Wednesday when a four-year-old girl was attacked and killed by the family dog. 7News is reporting that the girl and her family had visited the home and the dog many times before. The dog, a male boxer, and the girl were alone when the incident happened so no one knows what prompted the attack. A passing neighbor saw the attack from the road and alerted the family who then called 911. The girl was taken to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead. The dog was euthanized. According to Dogbitelaw.com, a recent study showed that 1,000 Americans are treated daily in emergency rooms as a result of dog bites. In 2007 there were 33 fatal dog attacks in the United States. Most dog bite victims who receive medical attention are children with facial injuries. A dog bite is often a traumatic and scary event—–especially for young children. A child’s small stature makes him especially vulnerable to head, neck and facial injuries including severe facial fractures, permanent scarring, nerve damage and life threatening head injuries. A large dog can easily break a child’s bones and their powerful jaws are capable of causing serious puncture wounds to the face, neck and head. If someone you love was killed by a dog, it is important to know that Colorado’s dog laws are on your side. You do not have to face the future with uncertainty—contact a Colorado dog bite attorney today.
