We were stopped and someone rear ended us. Impact felt and heard horrible, but just one small dent on the back bumper. Dh and DD1 both had some inital neck pain from hitting the back of the seat, but resolved within 5-10 minutes. Nobody is HURT. The seats look perfectly fine. Baby was just startled.
If so, does insurance HAVE to cover the cost of replacement? With or without damage to the car? The at-fault driver as Liberty Mutual. He hit us at probably 20-25 mph. He was getting his wallet out of his pocket and forgot where his break was.

The best plan is to leave baby at home and go buy a new seat. Either of the other two options (using a crash seat or an expired seat) are both unsafe, and you can't really say which one is less unsafe. Or ask to borrow a newborn appropriate seat from a trusted friend/family member until a new seat can be bought.
Check the manufacturers' website for the manuals or google them. Or call each of them and ask for a replacement manual to be mailed to you because you really should have a copy.
