What is The Britax Child Safety Harness Seat Class Action Settlement
The Britax Child Safety Harness Seat Class Action Settlement based on consumers claims that two of Britax’s child car seats were defective
What is the Lawsuit All about
The class action lawsuit alleges that the structure surrounding the harness and the top tether are capable of detaching from the seat due to a failure in the hardware component that connects the harness to the steel frame. Purchasers of the above products claim that they paid more for the Child Seats than they would have paid had they known about the defect or would not have purchased them at all.
