Parents of infant injured in car accident initiate lawsuit

It can be devastating to parents when their child is injured in a car accident, especially when the child is only a 1-year-old infant. Even more difficult is the ability to makes immediate assessments of the extent of the injuries for a child who is incapable of articulating their pain.
