The National Highway Traffic Safety Association is investigating the dangers of car seat heaters. There have been two different types of injuries occurring around car seat warmers. First, drivers and passengers have been burned by defective car seats that get so hot that the seat actually catches fire. Second, paraplegics, quadriplegics and others with sensory deprivation have been burned by seats that overheat to a lesser degree but still lack adequate safety mechanisms limiting temperature. More importantly, the NHTSA has been receiving complaints about injuries from heated car seats since 2001, and the same car manufacturers seem to be responsible for the malfunctioning seat heaters.
If you currently own one of these cars and believe that the seat warmers caused burn injuries, speak to a St. Louis heated car seat burn injury attorney now.
Car companies that manufacture defective seats can be liable when an injury like this occurs. Examples of negligent behavior on their part can include:
Heated car warmers that fail can cause 1st, 2nd, or 3rd degree burns on passengers. These burns often leave permanent scars on people. The procedures needed to treat burns can be expensive, and you’re often forced to take a leave of absence from work.
