Children and bicycle accidents

For a parent, there are many different concerns to keep in mind with respect to a child's well-being. Many parents are concerned about problems their child may face in the classroom, from performance on school assignments to bullies. However, when a child is involved in a traffic accident, his or her parent may feel as if their worst nightmare has come true. Many children enjoy riding bicycles, which can be a great way for them to get exercise and spend time with friends. Unfortunately, there is also the risk of being hit by a vehicle if they ride near the road.

The consequences of a bike crash can be very severe, with life-changing consequences ranging from mental trauma and serious injuries to the loss of life. To make things worse, some of these accidents are caused by a reckless driver's carelessness, such as someone who was driving drunk and failed to keep an eye out for others on the road or a drowsy driver who veered onto the sidewalk. When a child's future is cut short or their life is disrupted because of someone's negligent decisions, those responsible for the accident should never be able to get off the hook.

As a parent, you should do what you can to protect your child's future and help them recover. In some instances, legal action may provide you with the resources that you need. Our motor vehicle accident section has more material on the topic of bike accident injuries and related issues.
