Common Injuries in Rhode Island Pedestrian Accidents 

The impact of a moving car can leave a child’s small body with significant damage. Research (as published in The California Journal of Emergency Medicine) has shown that the injuries children most commonly suffer in pedestrian accidents include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) 
  • Musculoskeletal injuries, such as injuries to the legs and arms
  • Chest and abdominal injuries

Your child may undergo scary tests and treatments, lengthy hospital stays, and months of therapy. Although this care puts your child on the best possible path to recovery, going through this is hard on the whole family.

Damages in Rhode Island Child Pedestrian Accidents

Although nothing can erase the ordeal your child has been through, financial compensation can make their path forward easier.

In Rhode Island, children injured in pedestrian accidents (and their families) can seek compensation for economic damages, like your child’s medical bills and the wages you lost having to care for your injured child, and non-economic losses, like the physical and emotional pain and suffering your child has been through because of the accident.

Having professional legal representation on your side can help you get the most money for your child’s claim.
