Based on the details provided so far from the report, the driver will likely at least be held partially liable for the collision. There are still many unanswered questions, however. Under California law, drivers who are approaching a pedestrian are required to exercise due care and reduce their speed for the safety of the pedestrian.
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, the 10-year-old girl will likely be entitled to a personal injury lawsuit following this incident. Personal injury accident victims are entitled to compensation for damages hospital bills and medical expenses, lost work wages due to injury, and pain and suffering
