I hit a deer, do I need to replace the booster seat?

Yeah. I was probably only going about 40 when I hit it, but it was hard enough to cause a bit of damage to my front end. The insurance is paying to replace the baby's seat, but do I need to replace the booster/s as well? One is a no back booster, for my nearly 9 yo, 60 lber, the other a high back for my short 6 yo 50 lber.

I would...they're still considered child safety seats. DH runs a body shop and has never had issues getting boosters replaced by insurance companies when other carseats in the car were replaced as well.

Called the insurance company back and asked if the boosters are covered too. They called me back and told me yes, so guess I am going booster buying tomorrow after the car estimate appointment. I already ordered Abbi's new carseat, just wish it would get here faster. THe stores around here didn't have the one I wanted, so shipping it was.
