Evenflo has been designing and manufacturing juvenile products for almost a century. And during that time, they have rightly earned a positive reputation with parents. But they are certainly not perfect and later this year, Evenflo will face trial against the parents of a young girl who suffered catastrophic injuries after a 2014 car accident.
An attorney for the family is arguing that Evenflo “routinely markets booster seats for children who are not yet big enough to use them, and the seats in which the girl was sitting should have had a five-point harness.” For this reason, the family is seeking assistance with medical bills and the costs of ongoing care, alleging that their daughter was properly restrained in her seat at the time of the accident, despite her later being ejected from the seat after impact.
A court date has been set for August 2017.
