A child car seat that was in a car when it was involved in a collision should be replaced, even if there is no visible damage. I learned this from my insurance company after I got in an accident with my foster daughter. I didn't have any experience with situations like these since I just became a foster mother a few months prior to the accident through the fosterplus.org
agency. Apparently, the accident's impact may have weakened the seat to such an extent that it will not provide the same level of protection in another accident. I think it's very important to know this.
