Was Your Infant Child Injured in a Car Accident?
Were you involved in an auto accident with your infant child? Even if your child was snugly secured in his/her car seat, you likely still have fears about your baby’s health and well-being, especially if your baby is crying.
Car accidents are traumatic experiences for everyone, and infant children are no exception. If your child starts crying after you are hit by a reckless or negligent driver, you may be concerned that the tears mean he or she is injured.
