    Compensation for a schoolchild in a car accident


    The thought of a schoolchild in a car accident is one that makes many of us shudder. No one wants to see anyone involved in an accident but the thought of it being a child somehow seems a lot worse. Thankfully accidents like this are rare since the majority of children grow up with a good understanding of the potential dangers of the roads today. The vast majority of road users are also aware of the potential dangers of being near schools and other areas where there are plenty of children. Hence most potential situations in which an accident may happen do not amount to anything at all.

    Injuries that can be sustained in a car accident can range from cuts and bruises to far more serious injuries. We are all aware that some people and children have been seriously injured in accidents that occur on our roads. In some cases there are fatalities and this can never be a good situation to be in for anyone concerned. If the victim is a child it seems so much worse as well. Doing all we can to prevent these accidents is a good move in the right direction.

    How can we reduce the chances of these accidents happening?

    Teaching our children good road safety and good sense in these situations is paramount. However every road user has a duty of care to be alert to the potential dangers that may involve pedestrians or other people close to roads up and down the country. If we are all more alert and more careful we could help reduce the number of children and adults that could potentially be hurt in accidents that occur on rural roads and on roads in built-up areas as well.
