Motor vehicle crashes and children in North Dakota
In 2016, 113 people died in car wrecks in North Dakota; eight of them were under the age of 17. Between 2012 and 2016, 51 children died in car crashes. There were different contributing factors to why those children died, but the most common included:
- Improper use, or lack of use, of seatbelts, car seats, and other safety restraints systems
- Drunk driving
- Distracted driving
If another driver is responsible for the car accident which injures your child, we can make a claim for compensation through the driver’s insurance company. If a defective seat belt or car seat is to blame, the manufacturer of those products could be held liable, as well.
Every personal injury case is unique and requires a deep level of legal knowledge and experience to be successful, but cases involving children can be especially challenging. We conduct in-depth investigations into the cause of your child’s harm, work with doctors and local law enforcement (when applicable), and utilize state-of-the-art technologies to ensure that all responsible parties are held accountable for the harm they have caused your family.
