In this case, authorities are gathering more information and evidence to determine liability. Aside from factors such as alcohol or drugs, excessive speed, distracted driving and negligence, inadequate law enforcement and poor road design and construction may also play a role in the occurrence of pedestrian accidents.
Once the investigation is completed, if findings show there was negligence on behalf of the driver, the family of the young victim may have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault individual or entity.
