Girl struck by driver while playing outside home

Automobiles can travel in a wide range of areas in Georgia and other states across the U.S. Whether a motorist is traveling on an interstate, highway, city street, rural road or residential area, he or she is expected to know their surroundings and drive safely. Failure to uphold this duty could result in a collision. And when a motorist is negligent or reckless behind the wheel, a serious motor vehicle collision could ensue.

According to recent reports, a nine year old was struck by a vehicle. This young girl was in her family's yard in the metro Atlanta area when a car came barreling into their yard. Reports indicated that she is in critical condition, suffering a skull fracture, a broken pelvic bone and other internal injuries.

The incident was caught on surveillance camera, showing that the sedan plowed through a stop sign, hitting the young child outside of her home. The vehicle became lodged in the home while the passenger and the driver fled from the vehicle. Authorities are still searching for these individuals.

A hit-and-run crash is a difficult matter to deal with, as one has many questions. While investigation is pending, victims and their loved ones are still able to take action. Providing as much evidence as possible and preparing for a legal action once the liable party is located. This can also help them with the assessment of the overall damages experienced at this point.

A car accident could involve another vehicle, multiple vehicles, cyclists and even pedestrians. The aftermath of a car crash could be severe, as a victim and their loved ones are not expected such a tragic incident to occur. The shock of the event can be overwhelming, so too can the damages suffered. Therefore, it is important to explore recourses and the possibility of a personal injury action. This could help address the losses and damages suffered because of a negligent motorist.
