A 12-year-old riding his bike was hit by a car on Oakridge Boulevard in Lynchburg, Virginia (VA). According to ABC13, the boy had to be taken to Lynchburg General Hospital before being flown to UVA due to the severity of his injuries.
The Virginia Injury Lawyer’s Perspective:
Many questions need to be answered about this accident. For example, was the driver distracted? Was the driver speeding?
The family of the boy could attempt to pursue a civil claim and hold the driver liable for monetary damages. That financial restitution could help with the boy's medical expenses and if he suffers any life-altering injuries. Police investigations will reveal the circumstances around the case and the family can make decisions on whether to contact a personal injury attorney at that point.
