Based on this news report, it appears that the driver will likely still be held liable as the child had been riding within the means of a marked crosswalk upon being hit. Authorities will look into other factors, however, such as whether or not the driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Was the driver negligent in any other way? We trust officials are looking into these and other factors in order to determine precisely what occurred here to help figure out liability.
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, Oscar Cardoza will likely be entitled to personal injury lawsuit against the driver pending the results of the investigation. If the driver is found responsible, the injured victim may seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills and pain and suffering.
