Officials: Children at High Risk for Pedestrian Accidents in the Fall

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

San Diego Attorney Personal Injury Lawyer Steven EliaDid you know that the fall season is the most dangerous time of year for children? That’s because according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, children are at an increased risk for pedestrian accidents. Officials say the shorter daylight hours make it harder for drivers to spot children who are walking to school or waiting at a bus stop.

Adults are strongly encouraged to walk children to school, especially if they are younger than 10. Also, officials say all children who walk to school should be taught the basics of traffic safety, including crossing the street safely.

Kids who ride their bike to school must also be trained to bike safely, and must wear their helmets at all times.

Children who ride the school bus must understand the 10-foot danger zone surrounding around the bus, which includes about 10 feet in front of the bus, 10 feet behind as well as 10 feet at the sides of the bus.  These are the zones in which accidents are most likely to occur.

If you or your child has been involved in a pedestrian accident, it is important that you contact a knowledgeable injury attorney who knows the law inside and out. Don’t rely on just anyone to prosecute. Hire an experienced attorney – like San Diego Personal Injury Attorney Steven Elia. Steven can handle your claim and get you the compensation you deserve.

"Words can never express the gratitude that my husband and I have for Attorney Steven Elia and attorney Holly Attiq.. For 2 years, we were put through fire with our personal injury case, but luckily we met Steven and Holly, that made the brutal process of litigation as comfortable as it can be for our family. And even after the dust came down, they still check on us very often and offer their services to try to help us to stand back on our feet."
