6-year-old Neve Walker was struck in a San Diego boat collision that occurred on August 6‚ 2011‚ around 3:30 p.m. near Fiesta Island. According to the girl’s father‚ the child was riding on an inner tube along with her 10-year-old brother when a motorboat came from behind and veered into their path.
The little girl was knocked off the inner tube and ran over by the boat. She was taken to Rady Children’s Hospital for treatment‚ where she was diagnosed with fractured ribs‚ a partially collapsed lung and bruises‚ and cuts over her body.
Based on this news report‚ it appears that the boat driver was operating his watercraft recklessly and will be held liable for the young child’s injuries. The operator steered his boat too close to the children‚ a violation of boat safety regulations. The girl’s parents should consult with an experienced San Diego boating accident attorney who will advise them about her legal rights and options. When the extent of injury of so extreme‚ the accident victims could seek compensation to cover medical expenses‚ cost of hospitalization‚ and other accident-related damages. A lawyer who would assure that the at fault boat driver is apprehended and brought to justice.
