    We are very sorry to hear of the injury suffered by your son. Our thoughts are with your family, and we wish him a very speedy and complete recovery.
    While we have heard of injuries from sharp edges under the seats, or fingers pinched by the tray table brackets, we have not heard of a specific injury similar to that you described. Anything moving around a baby could be hazardous. A door, escalator, luggage cart, car window, and many other things are all danger items when an infant is near, and we as parents definitely have to have very sharp eyes.
    Since we do not have special training in law or product liability, our best advice is to contact a reputable attorney to seek their professional opinion. The design difference you note on other seats might be a good starting point to discuss with your attorney.

    The accident sounds awful and my heart goes out to the little boy.
