As the title says.... Should I??
A lady ran up the back of me yesterday and luckily there is not too much damage and due to her being in a small car and me in a medium sized 4x4. She copped more than I did and im just so thankful that nobody was seriously hurt. Anyways, i was reporting it to my insurance and she advised that any carseat that had been involved in an accident should be replaced and I am in two minds about it.
The impact was hard enough that I have some whiplash and a sore back but dd seems to be fine. We are off to the dr tomorrow to get checked out.
The carseat I have is the safe and sound meridian ahr so its really padded and has the side impact head things...
My insurer will pay up to $400 for me to get a new seat and they destroy the old one.
I guess I'm in two minds because I hate to be wasteful if the seat is perfectly ok but I also want to do the safest thing for dd. I'm pretty confident the accident did not cause any damage to the carseat but I'm no expert!
So what would you do???
