When a fatal accident takes the life of a child

It is a tragic affair when anyone suffers wrongful death in a traffic-related accident, but it always seems even more sorrowful when that person is a child. Adults are charged with protecting children, a responsibility most people gladly undertake, making a child death due to accident even more horrific because of feelings of guilt that occur after the accident.

Probably the best way we can protect our children from harm in an automobile is to drive safely and use age appropriate restraints, but we all know this is not always enough to prevent a tragedy, unfortunately. What if, despite using all caution, an accident happens anyway and a child suffers a wrongful death? What can survivors do? What can they expect to happen?

The answers to such questions don't come easy, but solutions are there for those who feel driven to take action. Remember these three key points: It's normal to crave justice; it's okay if that justice comes in the form of financial compensation; and often, losing something valuable is the only way individuals and companies will learn to exercise caution in the future. Whether negligent driving or faulty equipment resulted in this wrongful death of a child, survivors have a right to seek justice. In fact, some argue that the search for justice is the duty of survivors.

We wanted to send out this message in the hope of assuring parents and other family members of a lost child that the legal community is on your side whether you choose to take action or not.
