My sister was in an accident today while leaving work. Thank God she was riding alone. A woman ran a stop sign and plowed into her, causing the air bag to release. She is seemingly fine.

In any case, one of my kids' carseats was buckled in her car. It was a Myride 65. I HATE the seat. Seriously, detest that thing! I know she makes the claims for the carseats and insurance should replace them, however, is it possible to get a different seat or does it have to be the same one?? With it being my seat is there likely to be trouble about getting it replaced? Once again, so glad none of the kids were in there!!

Can someone walk me through the steps so she can get this taken care of?

Thanks *Kiliki* for the precious siggy!

I dont think there should be any problems with either one. my fiancee and I were in a accident july of 2011 and his trailblazer was totaled. We had 3 car seats (2 front facing & a infant seat) & 2 boosters no kids were with us. They asked if wanted seats replaced since they had no damage, The car seats we did want replaced. Boosters not since they were just low back boosters& furthest from any kind of impact if found any problems only cost 20 each.The insurance company asked what seats they were & sent out a check for the cost of replacements. We liked the seats we had (graco nautilus.This is one of my seats & LOVE THIS.Graco has a new one similar but more features its Argos 70 both front facing,evenflo triumph convertable and graco snug ride.)so didnt want another seat... however since it was just a check I dont see a problem with switching. Just if the replacement costs more then you'd have to pay the difference.

We got rearended in August and finally got around to insurance dealing with us, we were just told to go out and buy five new seats and submit our receipt with five pics of the old seats with their straps cut-no restrictions on replacement were given

Lucky mother to five!
