Graco Children's Products Car Seats

Safety organizations are focusing on Graco Children's Products after a 4-month-old boy was killed in a car accident in California when his child safety seat came loose and was ejected from the automobile. Investigators discovered in January 2004 that the infant, Bryan DeOliveira, was riding in a Graco carrier when it separated from its docking station during a collision with another vehicle. California Highway Patrol did not rule out the possibility that a manufacturing problem with the Graco carrier was to blame for the ejection.

Consumers were first alerted to Graco car seats in 2002 and 2003 when the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) issued two recalls of certain Graco SnugRide infant car seats because of missing metal hooks and retainer pins used to attach the carrier to the base. The NHTSA warned that the carrier may detach from the base causing serious injury or death in the event of a sudden stop or vehicle crash.

If your child has been seriously injured or killed in a car seat or baby carrier, it may be important for you to contact an attorney who can help you protect your child's legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits within which you must commence suit.
