Lithonia Pedestrian Accident
Accidents that take place on our roadways become that much more serious when they involve children. This is due to the fact that children are extremely vulnerable on our roadways and deserve more protection from harm. Drivers are expected to exercise a higher standard duty of care to children.
The parents of an injured child will be expected to bring a claim for compensation on their behalf. If your child was injured, you might be able to help them gain damages for aspects like medical bills that they have incurred through hospitalizations and time spent at their physician’s office, lost wages if they are working, emotional suffering, and more.
