Tragedies involving children are particularly difficult to comprehend and the mere thought of a car accident killing or injuring a child is enough to send a shiver down any parent’s spine. While statistics show that children are safer than ever on the road, a surprising number of car accidents involving children occur in driveways and other private spaces. So-called nontraffic crashes involving children are terrible to contemplate, but discussing them is crucial to preventing future tragedies and obtaining justice for the victims of these incidents. Our Oakland child injury lawyer is dedicated to both fights.

This week, the Oakland Tribune provided additional details about an accident on January 28 that led to the death of a young girl. It was around 2:25 PM in Richmond when a man was getting ready to leave his home on the 300 block of Beck Street near South 35 Street. As he pulled away in his truck, he tragically hit and killed a two-year-old girl. Police suspect the toddler was chasing after her father to say goodbye when she was hit and say they do not believe he saw the child before hitting her.
