Can My Child Make A Financial Recovery After Being Hit By A Car In Our Neighborhood?
It depends. Every bicycle accident in Florida is unique. Depending on the circumstances, the details of the crash, and your child’s injuries, you may or may not have a valid claim. In order to determine whether your family can make a financial recovery for your child’s injuries, you should contact a skilled attorney to discuss your case specifics.
If the driver was distracted, drunk, speeding, or breaking the law in any way, you may very well have a personal injury lawsuit on your hands. However, sometimes these cases are difficult to prove because a driver might lie about what happened. It is always a good idea to find out if anyone else in your neighborhood saw the accident and could serve as a witness.
Drivers do have a responsibility to drive carefully and to watch out for children in residential neighborhoods. However, sometimes even cautious drivers aren’t able to avoid an accident. In these situations, the driver might not be found negligent.
