It is the phone call every parent dreads. Your young child has been in an Atlanta car accident without you there. Whether the driver is a grandparent, aunt, uncle, babysitter or friend, the emotions are the same. Your baby is scared and in pain, and you need to get to your child and help your child get better. But where do you start? How can you best help your baby?

Our experienced Atlanta car accident lawyers recommend:
  • That you arrange to get to your child as quickly as possible. Keep in mind that, depending on the distance between you and your child and how badly your baby was hurt, you may be unable to drive safely. If you think you need help, ask a friend, relative or coworker for a ride to the hospital.
  • Call your child's pediatrician. Even if your child needs emergency medical attention, rely on your pediatrician to help you make decisions about which doctors to use and what procedures to allow.
  • Call an Atlanta auto accident attorney. The situation can be sticky - especially since you likely know and trust the person whom was driving your child at the time of the crash. However, your child may have legal rights to compensation from insurance companies or another driver.
