New Law in New York State Expands Child Safety Seat Requirements – Attorney Paul Dansker addresses injury prevention through legislation

A new law went into effect in November 2009 requiring all children under eight years of age to sit in a safety seat when riding in an automobile. The previous law had required the use of age- and size-appropriate seats until a child reached his or her seventh birthday. “While parents with children in elementary school may feel uncomfortable enforcing a safety seat rule, especially if their children put up a fuss, putting their children in booster seats can make a big difference in protecting them as passengers,” said Paul Dansker, Esq., a New York City-based personal injury attorney.
