Bakersfield Car Accident

When accidents take place involving skateboarders, bicyclists, pedestrians and more, they can very easily lead to serious results. This is due to the fact that these parties on our roadways are extremely vulnerable to serious injuries with catastrophic results, as they have few protections on our roadways.

We wish to extend our condolences to the 14-year-old skateboarder who was injured in this serious accident. If you are the loved one of a minor who has been injured due to the negligence of another party, you might have rights to compensation on their behalf. Parents are left to take care of medical bills and more following an accident. This means that you could receive compensation that will help you get back on track on a financial level.

One of the best things that you can do in your case is to prove who is liable for the accident through determining who acted in a careless way. Was the driver reading a text message or driving distracted at the time? Were they speeding or disobeying the traffic signs in the area?

If you have proven that a driver is responsible for your child’s injuries, you have options and we want to stand by your side. Call us for more information today at 310-954-7248 for more information on what we can do for you.
