Pregnant woman, child injured in car-pedestrian accident

In the luckiest of escapes, a pregnant Wilmington woman and her child escaped serious injury after being hit by a car. The mother was crossing the street at the intersection of Lancaster Avenue and Rodman Street just after 8 a.m., with her 2-year-old toddler and a 10-month-old in a baby carriage. The driver of the car came around the corner and ran into the mother and her baby carriage, missing the toddler. Miraculously, the mother and child were not seriously injured in the accident. Wilmington police officials said they were taken to the hospital and later released.

Most pedestrians who are struck by cars are not so lucky. Often, they sustain serious injuries or the accident is fatal. The 35-year-old woman driving the car was cited for inattentive driving. Though initial injuries in this accident appear to be minor, many victims of car-pedestrian accidents start to feel the ramifications of the collision days and even months later. The costs to diagnose and treat injuries can pile up.

Among all practice areas of the law, auto accidents are specially nuanced because of their range and breadth, and also because of the methods to apportion or assign blame. If the driver is found culpable, she could face jail time or hefty fines.

No one is better educated and experienced in teasing out these nuances than an attorney who specializes in motor vehicle accidents. If you or your family have been in a car accident, options are available to you. A specialist attorney can advise you of your options under Civil Law.
