Should I keep or throw away the car seat after a road accident?

We strongly recommend that you replace the car seat, even if it does not appear to be damaged, as the seat shell may have invisible cracks.

If your vehicle has an accident, consult your seat user guide to see if the manufacturer recommends that you no longer use car seats.

** Note however that many MANUFACTURERS and INSURANCE COMPANIES say that you absolutely must change it, even if it does not appear to be damaged.


Check with your insurance company if this type of property is included in your policy.

If you have to buy another seat due to an accident, you can include its value in your insurance claim. Also, before using an old or used car seat, make sure it has never been involved in an accident.
