Car crashes are the leading cause of accidental child death and injury in the United States.  Each year, approximately 2,000 children die in car crashes and another 250,000 are injured. 
 
This week, two children were left critically injured after a car crash in Cobb County.
 
The Cobb County car accident occurred on Monday, August 22 at about 3:45 p.m. at the intersection of Humphries Hill Road and C.H. James Parkway in Austell. 
 
A Saturn and a Volkswagon were involved. One vehicle t-boned the other car and caused the vehicle to split into two pieces.  Three adults and three children were involved in the crash.  Two children were critically injured, and one was flown to Children's Healthcare at Scottish Rite.
 
What should I do if my child is injured in an Atlanta car wreck?
 
Your first priority is to get immediate medical care for your child. Take your child to the emergency room and follow up with your own pediatrician.  Read our article, "When Your Child Has Been Injured In An Atlanta Car Crash: Five Tips For A Better Hospital Visit" for tips on emergency room visits
 
Once your child has been seen by the doctor, take pictures of any visible injuries. Keep notes about your visits and any follow-up appointments.
 
Don't let your child talk to the insurance company.  If the adjustor asks to speak to your child refer him to your Atlanta car crash attorney.
