Marc Anidjar, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “It is very sad to see this accident happen to a child. Pedestrian accident tend to lead to more significant injuries and fatalities. Unlike a car accident that has safety systems like airbags and seatbelts that can make the difference in surviving a car accident. It is important to always use crosswalks where available especially on high traffic non-residential roads. After an accident, families often have many questions about what next step to undertake. Although nothing can undo a tragic accident, an experienced attorney will help you fight for justice that your family deserves.”
