A recent ABC News report raises the important issue of the dangers of reclining car seats. The article presents the example of car accident survivor Prashant Kumar, who is lucky to be alive after sustaining liver, lung and kidney damage. What caused Kumar’s serious injuries? He was wearing his seatbelt, but his seat was reclined. What Kumar and many others do not know is that when you have your seat in the recline position, you dramatically increase your chance of suffering major or fatal injuries.
