Serious car accidents may end young lives

California drivers are likely aware that the proper use of seat belts is a must. Being properly restrained while riding in a vehicle is the law. It is just as important to make sure the smallest passengers are kept as safe as possible so as to avoid car accidents

Earlier this week, witnesses say the driver of a pickup truck ran a stop sign at an intersection known for being the scene of several previous car accidents. The driver of a minivan swerved to avoid hitting the pickup, and unfortunately made contact with another vehicle. The force of the impact caused an infant passenger to exit the vehicle through a window. The child was killed as a result. 

The driver of the van suffered a broken leg. Two other young passengers in the vehicle were not injured. Upon investigation, police determined that the infant who lost her life had not been properly restrained in the car seat. While the seat was indeed properly secured in the vehicle, the child herself was supposedly not buckled in the correct manner. 

Residents of California may at some time find themselves or their loved ones affected by the aftermath of a car accident. It may be difficult to determine the best course of action, especially when death of a loved one or serious injury results. Sometimes, it can be useful to seek the guidance of an attorney who focuses on claims resulting from serious car accidents. They may be able to provide drivers and victims with knowledge and support for the road ahead.
