A local community in West Newbury, MA was reminded of the harm motor vehicles can cause when an 8-year-old boy was struck by a car while he was riding his scooter. Residents have said that children often play in that area, but that it has limited visibility for drivers. The boy was conscious when responders arrived, but he was bleeding from his head, so responders airlifted him by a medical helicopter to a nearby Boston hospital. Although his current condition is unknown, he is fortunately expected to survive.

Each motorist is responsible for his or her own actions. They are expected to operate in a safe, responsible manner that does not pose a threat to themselves or anyone else on the road. While scooters offer the freedom of increased mobility, they offer no real protection from oncoming drivers. This makes them especially vulnerable when compared to other drivers, and must be given a greater duty of care, especially when being used by a child. Under the law, all pedestrians are required to be given deference by nearby vehicles. Motor vehicles, under the law, must slow down when approaching a pedestrian. When, through no individual fault, a pedestrian sustains serious physical injuries from the negligence of a motorist, the responsible party should be held accountable.

If you have been injured by a passing vehicle, you may be entitled to substantial compensation for your physical injuries, as well as any emotional trauma, pain and suffering, and financial hardship caused by the unfortunate accident.
