Graves Thomas Rotunda Injury Law Group Believes In Healthy Start To Car Safety
Graves Thomas Injury Law Group is taking their work personally, gifting Indian River Healthy Start Coalition new infant car seats to help new mothers in the county bring home their bundles of joy more securely.
“We are thrilled to have the support of community partners like Graves Thomas Injury Law Group to create a safer tomorrow for the mommies and babies of Indian River County,” said Healthy Start Coalition Executive Director, Andrea Berry.
Founding attorney Joseph H. Graves and Matthew M. Thomas stopped by the non-profit’s new offices to deliver the brand new convertible infant car seats. State and national statistics show that passengers who are not properly buckled-up are at a much greater risk of serious injury or death in a car wreck – and the risk of serious injury is particularly significant for infants and young children. Florida law requires the use of seat belts or child restraint devices by drivers of motor vehicles, and children ages 0 to 3 must be in child restraint devices of a separate carrier or a vehicle manufacturer’s integrated child seat.
“In a practice that regularly sees the impact injuries sustained in a car accident injuries can have, we recognize the importance of proper restraints for children,” commented Graves, “By providing car seats to those who may not have access otherwise helps to truly provide a healthy start for our area families.”
Indian River County Healthy Start Coalition offers a broad spectrum of programs to ensure that every pregnant woman and their young children receive all necessary healthcare and support services, from prenatal resources, childbirth education and touchpoints in the first years. Healthy Start oversees a variety of classes and support roles that impact over 91% of the families in the county and endeavor to decrease infant mortality, increase familial connections while expanding a child’s horizons.
