car seat replacement?

My husband's parents were in an accident today. The insurance is going to be replacing their van but I thought I heard somewhere that, by law, they also have to replace the car seats. Is this true? Isabel's car seat was in the van but thank goodness she wasn't in it. Has anyoneelse been in this situation? WQe live in California.

  • Thanks. I found the info. The law for California says they do not have to replace the seat if it was not occupied during the wreck.
