In Mississippi and other States, children are the unfortunate victims of pedestrian / automobile accidents. Whether it is near a residential area, commercial area, school or playground, drivers should exercise due caution when there are pedestrians in or near the roadway. This is especially important when there are children present. It was reported in Biloxi, Mississippi that a 6 year was hit by a vehicle when she was crossing U.S. 90 and White Avenue. She was attempting to cross the street with her father. She suffered personal injuries including a head injury and a fractured leg. Traffic in the area was heavy earlier in the day during the Cruisin’ The Coast event. See 6 Year OId Girl Crossing the Street in Biloxi Mississippi.
It can be quite difficult and stressful for a parent dealing with the aftermath of a serious child personal injury. The book titled – The ABCs of Child Injury – Legal Rights of the Injured Child – What Every Parent Should Know – has chapters on Medical Bills / Treatment, Damages / Compensation, Automobile Accidents, and other topics.
