Pedestrian Dangers for Children

Many children walk to and from school and other locations. While this can be good exercise and save parents money on gasoline, it also might increase the chances of a child being injured by a negligent driver. When children are pedestrians, there are a number of factors that put them in more danger, such as they might be harder to see or not aware enough of their surroundings. In the event that your child is injured by a negligent driver while walking, you might be able to sue for financial compensation to help cover any costs that have arisen from their injuries.

If your child has been struck by a reckless driver, contact the experienced Kenosha car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. today by calling 800-242-2874. Our legal team will do their utmost to help you get the compensation and justice you are seeking.

When Children Are Likely to Be Endangered

Sometimes drivers don’t fulfill their responsibility to ensure the safety of others, particularly pedestrians. When this happens and children are involved, the results can be devastating. Often, children are most in danger as pedestrians when drivers are:

  • Distracted
  • Drunk
  • Using high speeds in school zones
  • Running lights or stop signs

Although there are other ways in which children might be injured as pedestrians, any injury to a child caused by driver negligence can be traumatic. Fortunately, parents of injured children may have the option of pursuing legal action in these circumstances.
