You Should Obtain Legal Help After a Child Car Accident


A Tampa news outlet recently reported that four children were injured in a recent collision after they and the three adults they were riding with weren’t wearing seat belts, including one who incurred injuries that were fatal. Sadly, the body of a 1-year-old boy was found in water near the crash site hours after the child was ejected from a mid-size pickup that flipped on a South Florida interstate. According to a crash report, the toddler did not have a child restraint at the time that the vehicle ran off the right shoulder of the roadway and flipped several times following a tire blowout. In fact, no one inside of the car was properly secured with a seat belt or restraint at the time of the collision. While some of the adults suffered from serious injuries, the other three children in the car suffered only minor injuries.

Potential Problems for Child Passengers

We are all vulnerable to injuries from car accidents, but the smallest members of our families also tend to have an especially heightened vulnerability. Unfortunately, children are actually in danger every time they are passengers in the car. Statistics published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicate that vehicular-related injuries are the leading cause of death among children in the United States.

Pursuing Compensation for Unexpected Injuries

Figuring out what to do after a Florida child car accident carries its own challenges. And even after you have made the decision to pursue a car accident claim, you should expect to face numerous challenges throughout your legal battle for the compensation you deserve. Regardless of whether your claim is on behalf of a child, you will likely be up against insurance companies that don’t want to pay as well as aggressive defense attorneys who support their interests. You should anticipate that neither will easily back down from attempting to show that the negligent party was not at fault for the accident. Because of this, you should always seek legal advice from knowledgeable personal injury lawyers when you are attempting to successfully pursue a personal injury claim.
