Do you always need to replace a carseat after a wreck?

DH was in a wreck today that tore up the whole back of his Expedition. He had the carseat in there buckled up.

I had heard that you need to replace car seats after wrecks, but this really wasn't that much of an impact, I don't think . I just want to make sure that if he does need to have the other guy's insurance pay for a new one, he tells them that when he talks to them tomorrow.

I do believe that you do need to replace them even if your kids were not in them. Make the insurence company buy you brand new britex!! LOL

Yup. Even though there might not be any damage you can see, there may be some structural damage that would give-out in the case of another accident. Go for the Britax mama!

your own car insurance willpay for the replacement of any carseats in the car, i think earlier here on ds someone said insurances only give $50 for new carseats, which is nuts since they cost so much more than that but i'd find out and if so maybe you can collect form your insurance and the other persons to have them replaced

Re: Do you always need to replace a carseat after a wreck?

Yes, the other guy's insurance needs to replace it, but be prepared for them to not give you much-they will give you what the seat you have in your car at the time is worth, based on what you paid for it and how long ago you bought it. When my car was totaled, I got a measly $20 for my century infant seat-not enough to buy a new seat.

Well, I just had a scenara in there, so it was only a $40 seat. I have a Triumph in mine, which was around $120...
