I recently sent an e-mail to the woman who sold me Jordan's car seat, telling her thanks again, and that it did the job of keeping him safe in the accident. She told me she was glad it held him safe and added that manufacturers say not to use a seat again if it's been in an accident. I researched this a little and found some sites (two of them are here and here). They both say this:
The car seat does not need to be replaced if:
1) There are no cracks or breaks or visible damage to the seat.
2) The car was able to be driven from the crash scene.
3) The vehicle door nearest the seat was undamaged.
4) There were no injuries to any of the vehicle's occupants.
5) The air bags did not deploy.
The car was not able to be driven from the crash scene and I have a minor injury, but the door nearest Jordan was not damaged, the air bags did not deploy and, upon inspection, the car seat still looks perfectly fine (and he rode home in it).
Other sites say it should be replaced no matter what (including the manufacturer of this particular seat). I know it may seem like bad parenting to even consider not replacing the seat when I am so clearly being told that I should, but I'm curious as to what other parents think.
Since the other driver's insurance should pay for it, I will probably replace the seat.
