Children over 4 years are injured most frequently and the most common injuries are to the head, face, chest and abdomen. For younger children, the most common errors are loose or misplaced straps.

"We see that adults want to protect their children but they may lack knowledge of what can happen if the equipment is not used properly. The aim of this study was to evaluate the incorrect usage of child restraint in the vehicle, related to the child's height, age and type of equipment. In this way, we can give advice to parents, authorities and particularly the motor industry," says Skjerven-Martinsen.

In her thesis, she also described how children of different ages should be secured to prevent serious injury in car accidents. The findings provide a scientific basis for targeted prevention.

About the 'Barn i Bil' Study

The research project is a comprehensive study conducted by the Department of Forensic Pathology at the NIPH in collaboration with Oslo University Hospital.

From 2007 to 2009, selected collisions were analysed but from 2009 to 2013 this was expanded to include all serious collisions so that the number of accidents and injured children could be quantified. A total of 115 cars that collided and 185 children were examined. The typical injury mechanisms were identified by comparing the findings of technical examinations of the cars with the children's injuries and the sequence of events inside each car was reconstructed. A roadside study of normal traffic on Norwegian roads was also carried out. It was found that over one in three children were incorrectly restrained due to improper use of safety equipment. In addition, a quarter of the children were exposed to heavy, unsecured items. The percentage of incorrectly restrained children was highest in the 4-7 year age group.
