Child Struck and Killed in Pedestrian Accident

A six-year-old Palatka boy was struck by a car and killed on March 11 while attempting to cross a street near his home. Accident investigators with the Florida Highway Patrol say that the child was trying to cross the street at the intersection of St. Johns and Wells Avenues when he was struck and killed by a 2002 Toyota driven by a 36-year-old Palatka woman. Police say the child died at the accident scene. It is unknown whether or not the driver of the car is facing criminal charges. More pedestrian accidents occur in Florida than any other state. These accidents take a terrible toll on victims and their families, and many seek the counsel of an Orlando personal injury attorney such as James O. Cunningham.

•    Paralysis
•    Compound bone fractures
•    Severed limbs
•    Brain injuries
•    Ruptured internal organs
•    Blindness
•    Back injuries
•    Other serious and debilitating injuries

These injuries result in long hospital stays for victims and medical bills that quickly climb into the hundreds of thousands of dollars, compounding the difficulties that victims and their families face by adding financial trauma to their physical trauma.
