Car crashes can happen for a number of reasons, but in cases involving children, they have to be scrutinized. Watching children go through the difficulties of a crash with serious injuries is hard for everyone from families to authorities to the doctors who treat them.That’s why the law is so hard on those who cause injuries to children, even in the case that they are accidental. Take, for example, this case. A man from Connecticut has been charged in a crash that caused injuries to two children. According to an Aug. 8 report, the crash took place nearby to 1400 Whitney Avenue on St. Patrick’s Day in 2018. The 34-year-old man had been speeding in his vehicle when he struck a pole and rolled it.Two children were in the vehicle, both suffering injuries. An 8-year-old and 11-month old inside the vehicle had both been improperly restrained. In this instance, the man was charged for assault in the second degree, risk of injury to a child, reckless endangerment and other charges for failing to properly restrain the children.

It is not clear what relationship the man had with the children. Crashes like this are particularly difficult for family members, especially if the driver and children are related in some way. Even if it’s someone you know who caused the accident, you can still pursue a claim against that person’s insurance or against them directly. It’s a tragedy for all involved, but someone still should be held responsible for the injuries that the children you love have suffered in this crash.
