Liability Of Motorists In Accidents With Child Victims
Accidents that involve children (among the victims) receive different treatments from those that only involve adults. Motorists are required to avoid creating unreasonable risks to the young ones. This is because of the natural characteristic of children such as curiosity, impulsiveness and lack of appreciation of danger. As such, you cannot expect a child to protect himself or herself from an oncoming accident, as you would expect an adult. Therefore, there are unique factors that courts consider when handling these cases.
