Our children are the most precious cargo we have when operating a motor vehicle. Indeed, this is why Tennessee parents are some of the safest and most cautious drivers on the road. While safety and caution can do a lot, sometimes there is nothing that parents can do to avoid crashes -- especially when car accidents are caused by other negligent or unlawful drivers.
At Logan-Thompson, we cannot bear the thought of another child suffering injury on a Tennessee roadway, but it happens again and again. As such, we do our part to bring negligent drivers to justice, and we actively seek claims to represent parents and families in child injury cases because we feel that this issue is a problem that needs more attention and one that needs to be addressed. With every child injury case we pursue, more attention is brought to the vital issue of child safety and child accident prevention.
Not all child injuries are caused by driver negligence or unlawful activity, though. Malfunctioning car seats, defective automobiles and other factors can hurt children as well. It is, therefore, important to analyze ever factor involved in a car accident that results in a child injury. Was the child sitting in a child seat and what was the make and model of that seat and are there any known manufacturing problems? By analyzing accident scene evidence, we look for any signs of faulty products or other equipment that could have caused or worsened the child's injuries?
These issues are vital to consider to ensure that responsible parties are held accountable for their negligence. Regarding car accidents that injure children, at Logan-Thompson we are committed to leaving no stone unturned. We always perform in-depth analysis and employ accident reconstruction experts when necessary to determine exactly what happened in a crash and to identify the responsible parties.
