One of the aspects that you must know about pedestrian accidents is that drivers are supposed to constantly be on the lookout for pedestrians who are utilizing our roadways. If a motorist then engages in a negligent action that causes a serious accident, the injured might be permitted to bring a claim for a variety of damages. Many of these accidents happen for negligent reasons such as driving distracted at the time, drunk driving, speeding, and a variety of other factors.
Once a determination is made on who is at fault for the accident, the pedestrian might decide to move forward with a claim for compensation. If your child has been injured in an accident, you would have to bring a claim on their behalf, which could account for aspects like lost wages, medical bills, and other aspects.
