Hit and Run - Student injured
In the local Weston newspapers I found an article about a student of a Weston Elementary school that received serious injuries from a hit and run accident. The article stated that the student apparently ran out of the school yard through a gate that was open an unattended before his morning line up.
The report stated that the student ran into the street and was hit by a car. The driver of the vehicle that hit the kid did not stop but witnesses were able to provide the police the tag # of the car that was involved. Paramedics and police were called out to the scene of the accident, he sustained injuries serious enough to be hospitalized. He suffered a broken leg and internal injuries he was hospitalized for a week.
His parents sought legal counsel from a Fort Lauderdale attorney who is experienced in this type of accident injury, but then again who would be the responsible party. They provided their attorney records of the injury and all medical bills that their son sustained along with pictures of his injury and the immediate area at the school where the gate is located. As I stated earlier there are schools and neighborhoods being built all over Broward County and drivers have to practice their due diligence when driving on the streets and highways, especially through school zones.
