What to Do if Your Child is Hit by a Car in San Antonio

One of the worst things that can happen to a parent is seeing a careless driver injure their child. Children often pay the price when drivers are careless and speed through neighborhoods or school zones.

Fortunately, Texas law demands that parents be compensated if a negligent driver injures their child. Let’s take a look at what to do if your child is hurt in an auto accident.

Immediately After the Accident:

What you do immediately after your child’s injury is crucial for their recovery and building a solid legal case against the negligent driver.

  1. Assess for Injuries — Children are especially susceptible to TBI, spinal cord injury, and broken bones in pedestrian accidents. If you suspect your child is seriously injured, do not try to move them. This may make a bad injury more serious.
  2. Call 9-1-1 — You or a bystander should call for EMS and police ASAP. Even if your child is not seriously injured, they should be checked out by a medical professional. Also, it is a legal requirement to call the police if someone is hurt in an accident in Texas, and a police report is crucial evidence for a child injury claim.
  3. Collect Information — You or someone you trust should take photos of the accident scene, as well as gather the insurance and contact information of the driver.
  4. Document Injury Information — Document your child’s treatment and photos of your child’s injuries, and keep track of what the doctors say. Keep detailed records of receipts and paperwork detailing at-home treatment.

Do I Need an Attorney for My Child’s Injury?

If your child is hit as a pedestrian, they will likely be seriously injured. Any accident involving a serious injury is likely to be disputed by the insurance company. They will try to pin the blame for the accident on your child or suggest that the injuries are not as severe as you claim. Either way, you need an experienced attorney to fight for justice for your child.
