Four Injured, Including Children in LA Crash
A multi-vehicle crash was reported on Harbor Freeway on Saturday, January 9th in Los Angeles. The Los Angeles Fire Department was one of the first responders at the scene. The incident happened just before 12:30 p.m. on 110 Freeway near 105 Freeway. At least four vehicles were involved in the crash. The driver of the vehicle lost control of the steering, which led to the aforementioned vehicle crashing several other automobiles in the vicinity. Four people were found to be injured at the scene, including two children. One of them, a woman, was severely injured and is now in critical condition. All of them were sent to the hospital to receive further treatment. Authorities are still investigating the cause of the crash.
Do Children Have the Right to File A Claim As A Car Accident Victim?
Although they are underaged, child car accident victims have the same rights as an adult victim, and that includes the ability to file a claim against the at-fault driver. However, the process will not be directly done by them — a parent or a guardian will instead be starting the process on their behalf. If you are a parent or guardian of a child injured in a car accident, call us today at (800) 310-1606 to get a free consultation on your case.
