Prevent Child Pedestrian Injuries, presented by Atlanta/Georgia Accident Attorneys, Montlick & Associates
Child pedestrians are at a much higher risk for injuries than adults. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), nearly one out of every five children ages 5 to 9 years who died in traffic-related accidents were pedestrians. A child's small size makes them more difficult for drivers to see. And their inability to judge distance and vehicle speeds can lead them to misjudge when it is safe to cross the street.
Unfortunately, in the course of helping accident victims for over 25 years, Georgia Accident Attorneys Montlick & Associates has seen a large number of traffic-related accidents where children are injured and sometimes killed; and so many times, it could have been prevented. Montlick & Associates, Attorneys at Law is committed to helping you keep your family safe on the road. That's why we created the Child Pedestrian Safety Guide below, as well as the following segment that appeared on ABC news. Parents help protect your loved ones by teaching them safe street crossing behaviors and other important traffic safety rules.
