It’s that time of year again, Summer is ending and school is back in session. For many of us this means kissing our kids goodbye and sending them off to the bus stop where they wait for their ride to school. As parents first, and attorneys second, this is an all too familiar feeling for us at Northland Injury Law in North Kansas City.
The recent NBC video highlights the rising dangers of distracted driving around school zones. There are more than 100 children killed and 25,000 injured every year in accidents occurring in school zones and there is no dispute that distracted driving contributes to these rising numbers. We urge you to watch the video link below to highlight just how serious of a problem this is becoming.
It is important for all the North Kansas City parents out there to be aware of this problem and help inform your children so that they may avoid a possible injury happening to them. We realize the importance of taking preventative measures to distracted driving as we have represented many clients who have been involved in motor vehicle accidents, including those occurring in school zones. If you, or someone you love, are injured in an accident don’t hesitate to call Northland Injury Law for a free consultation (816) 452-1800.
