Auto accidents take place for an array of reasons and they shatter many lives each year. People lose loved ones and they also struggle with devastating injuries that permanently alter their entire life. Worse, many of the motor vehicle wrecks that take place are completely avoidable, meaning that so many lives have been claimed and shattered because of careless behavior, including the lives of young children. As a parent, a crash can be especially devastating when your child is involved. Our law office believes that reckless drivers must be held accountable for their actions.
There are a number of issues to consider when it comes to auto accidents and young children. Some children are unable to continue attending school for a period of time as they try to recover from a wreck, which can be very difficult and may even derail progress they have made. Aside from school, children may be unable to work if they have jobs or participate in after-school activities and hobbies that they enjoy. For example, your child may love to ski or snowboard and they may not be able to do so following a motor vehicle crash that left them hurt.
Parents and children who are involved in accidents caused by reckless drivers deserve justice. Far too many negligent drivers have turned lives upside down because they failed to follow traffic safety laws and common sense, such as not getting behind the wheel after drinking too much. Sadly, motor vehicle wrecks will keep happening and will leave more and more children with devastating injuries.
