Negligence in motorcycle accidents involving children

When driving on a motorcycle near a child facility, drivers are required to exercise extra care on the road. Children may get scared more easily when approached with fast motor vehicles, which can result in accidents with sudden injuries. Motorcycle accidents are a common occurrence and may result in trauma to you, as well as the child.

When driving near facilities with children such as parks and schools, all motorists are advised to drive carefully at a reasonable speed. In case of accidents, legal authorities first determine whether the incident was caused because of the driver’s negligence or carelessness. As a driver, you may be held liable if there is proof that suggests that a sufficient level of care and precaution was not exercised when traveling with a child or near an institution with children. 

A motorcycle accident involving a child can be traumatic. This may result in the child taking days off school and thus, his or her education might suffer. Moreover, if you are a parent, the medical expenses to treat injuries may be a big burden on you.  However, if there is proof to believe that the accident was caused by driver negligence, then you may be able to recover compensation for your losses.

If your child has suffered injuries in a motorcycle accident because of the carelessness of the driver, then it may benefit you to consult with an experienced attorney. A lawyer may evaluate your child’s case and help you file a solid claim for compensation. Children have legal rights and violation of those rights is a serious offense that can lead to heavy penalties.
