How many kids are killed and hurt in collisions?

Raising a child can be challenging, and there are many risks that kids will face throughout their entire childhood. Sadly, traffic accidents are one of the most common ways in which young children are injured or killed, and these fatalities and injuries occur at an alarming rate. As a parent, it is imperative for you to understand the risks that your child faces on the road and do everything you can to reduce the probability of a collision. Sadly, even if you take every precautionary measure, an accident may still occur and be devastating for your family.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 128,000 children under the age of 12 were injured in motor vehicle wrecks over the course 2016. Furthermore, more than 700 children in this age group passed away during the same year. The CDC points out that many children ride in vehicles without being properly restrained at some point, whether they are not in an appropriate car seat or they are not wearing a seat belt.

Even when parents ensure that their kids are properly restrained, the roads can be incredibly dangerous. There are a number of ways in which children can be injured or killed in car accidents, especially if a reckless driver is traveling at a high rate of speed when they collide with the vehicle or some other tragic event takes place on the roadway. When some other driver's negligent behavior results in a devastating wreck, victims should explore the legal options they might have.
