Motor Vehicle Injuries to Children

Every day in 2006, an average of five children 14 and younger were killed and 568 were injured in traffic accident crashes, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

At Freeman & Chiartas, we have more than 60 years of combined experience representing victims of all types of vehicle accidents, including those involving:

  • Cars
  • Trucks
  • Motorcycles
  • SUVs
  • School buses
  • Boats
  • ATVs

We also have a strong background advocating for children who were injured while riding as passengers in a vehicle, as well as those who were struck by vehicles while riding a bike or crossing the street.

Nearly a quarter of all children injured in traffic accidents in 2006 were involved in alcohol-related crashes. If a drunk driver injured your child, please contact our motor vehicle accident lawyers to discuss your legal rights. In addition to a claim against the drunk driver, you may also be able to pursue legal action against the bar or restaurant that over-served him or her.

Pursuing Full And Fair Compensation For Motor Vehicle Accident Victims

We aggressively pursue financial compensation for the full extent of damages, including pain and suffering, medical bills, rehabilitation expenses, diminished ability to earn income, parents' lost wages or income and property damage.

Our personal injury attorneys will carefully analyze the circumstances of your traffic accident, looking for all possible sources of financial compensation. Often, we will employ creative legal strategies in order to see that an injured child is properly compensated. Did a road design flaw cause the accident? Was a defective seat belt or other vehicular flaw responsible for the child's injuries? We are trained professionals, and we will find out the cause of your child's injuries.

We have what it takes to take on big insurance companies and powerful corporations — including car manufacturers — and get results for injured children. For more information about the causes of motor vehicle accidents and what you should do in the event of one, view our free report.
