Becoming the victim of another person’s negligence in your car is devastating. There are few things more terrifying than being involved in an automobile accident, but being involved in an accident in which your children are also in the car is quite possibly one of the most terrifying moments in any parent’s life. Your children’s safety is your main concern, and any parent will agree nothing scares you more than the realization your child could be badly injured. When someone hits you or causes an accident while your children are with you, you have every right to worry. What you can’t do is panic. Your kids need you to remain calm and collected during this time, because they’ll be fearful enough on their own.
Then call an attorney. Children are the most important people in the lives of their families, and you could be in serious legal trouble if a child’s family decides to sue you and seek compensation for damages. You’ll want an attorney on your side if this happens. It’s best to know what rights you have, what you can say and do to keep yourself out of more trouble than you might already be in, and what you might expect if you are taken to trial. It’s not an easy situation, but you can handle it with the help of an experienced attorney on your side. Our attorneys are here to help you if you’re in an accident with your children.
