Children Involved In Pedestrian Accidents
Over 1000 victims are injured in pedestrian accidents each year in Utah. Sadly, a lot of those injured are children. Children involved in pedestrian accidents often sustain serious and life-threatening injuries due to fragile and small stature.
When children are injured in pedestrian accidents, parents often have to take time off work to help their child recover. In addition to not having an income, families are further burdened by overwhelming medical bills related to their treatment.
