Father Files Class-Action Lawsuit Against Evenflo, Maker of Booster Car Seats

A California father has filed a nationwide class-action lawsuit against Evenflo, maker of the popular Evenflo Big Kid booster car seat, for allegedly selling the car seat with misleading advertising and safety claims, placing children weighing less than 40 pounds in grave danger during a car crash, according to Hagens Berman.

The lawsuit, filed Feb. 12, 2020, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio states that Ohio-based Evenflo’s popular Big Kid booster seat was sold to consumers as “side-impact tested” and safe for children weighing less than 40 pounds. But the lawsuit alleges Evenflo does not tell consumers that its own tests reveal that a child seated in a Big Kid booster during a side-impact collision could be in grave danger of serious injury or death.

“Millions of parents and child guardians across the country believed the lies that Evenflo printed in its marketing for its Big Kid booster seats, leaving children at high-risk of injury or even death during a side-impact collision,” said Steve Berman, co-founder and managing partner of Hagens Berman.
