    I'm agree. I work in insurance for an RAC, and the suggestion is after an accident, replace the car seat. On the insurance side, with our comprehensive insurance we offer up to $500 to cover replacement of a baby seat after an accident or theft. So as you've said, call your insurer and quiz them on it.

    Hope everyone is ok... Car accidents are just horrid things even if no one is physically hurt. xo

    Thanks jdiddy. Is there criteria that has to met (ie - severity of crash) or is it automatically replaced?

    Definitely ask your insurer. I had a lady run up the back of me a few months ago with minimal damage to the car and none to dd or i (luckily) but my insurer paid $400 for a new car seat! It's worth it for the peace of mind.
    I also looked into the replacement scheme but my damage was not severe enough to be counted. Also I hadn't logged it with the police and that had to be done to be eligible!
    I'm so glad nobody was hurt.

    Ours was replaced automatically. There was a delay with the latest crash, the driver at fault was unco-operative so I bought a different one but still had them replace the other one.

    It should be automatic, but mention it to the insurer because it could come down to what the assessor says.

    Good news! Rang my insurance company and they replace up to $500 for the baby seat so we are getting a new one! Im so relieved. Much better to be safe than sorry. DD is just wayy too precious to risk it!

    Thanks everyone

    Out of interest i rang Britax (safe n sound) and they said unless the car chassis was damaged it didnt need to be replaced which i thought was interesting. I wonder why they say that, im guessing due to testing to see what the seat can withstand? You would think they would tell u to replace after all more money for them? So the seat probably is ok, i just dont want to take that chance. Probably isnt good enough.
