- Child Passenger Safety Week and Car Seat Concerns
Sept. 13-19 is Child Passenger Safety Week, an entire week dedicated to raising awareness about the safety of children when they are riding in the car.
According to Glendale police, every 34 seconds a child is involved in a vehicle crash. In 2012, more than 121,000 children under the age of 13 were injured as passengers in automotive accidents.
Glendale police will be out in full force this week checking for drivers speeding in school zones as well as making sure children are strapped in the proper car seats and that the seats are properly installed. Three out of four car seats are not installed properly.
Furthermore, it is very important that parents and caregivers register their childs car seat in case a product is ever recalled. If the seat is not registered, the consumer will not be notified of a potentially dangerous defect. In 2014, more than six million car seat models were recalled for a safety defect. However, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, less than half of the recalled seats were repaired.
During National Child Passenger Safety Week, certified child passenger safety technicians across the country will be showing caregivers how to properly use, install and register their car seats. Safe Kids, an organization dedicated to the safety of children, will also be hosting child seat inspections.
In Arizona, events are being held on Friday, Sept. 18 and Saturday, Sept. 19 at AAA offices, Couunty Health Departments and even Target in Tucson, Arizona. To find an event near you, visit www.safercar.gov/parents.

I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
A friend of mine recommended Phillips Law and I’m so grateful, because they were so wonderful, so down to earth, so professional. I felt like they were family.
Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.
Liz was great
I enjoy my work day here at Phillips Law Group and generally speaking I love my clients. Every day brings a new client or task to keep me on my toes. Administration keeps open communication and is hilarious most of the time! I love the way we celebrate FRIDAY, holidays and birthdays and how everything is so competitive. All in all I’m so fortunate to be here and I enjoy what I do.
Jon Jamieson was amazing to work with . He came through with all of his promises.
Juan Roque has been integral with my legal needs. Communication has been easy. He conveys information I can easily understand without a lot of "Legal Fluff" jargon. I will certainly do business with Phillips Legal team again and refer them to my friends and family.
