An unfortunate fact in many bicycle accidents is that the victim is a young child, who has been seriously injured, or even tragically killed as the result of careless driving by a vehicle operator.
In Pennsylvania, the law protects children under the age of fourteen from being held to the same standard of care as an adult, and therefore, less likely to be held accountable for their injuries. Parents should never hesitate to seek legal representation where a child is injured in a bicycle accident.
