Denver, CO, October 15, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- An Arizona toddler was struck and killed by his father's Ford Expedition on Sept. 30th in Queen Creek Arizona. The father believed the child was inside at the time. This tragedy could have been prevented by a bill currently in congress. The Cameron Gulbransen Kids and Cars Safety Act was introduced in the House and Senate in February. The bill is named after a New York boy who was run over in 2002, and the bill’s authors cite a 2002 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) study (July 2000-June 2001) that reports that over 9,160 children were treated in hospital emergency rooms due to nontraffic incidents. According to the bills sponsors and authors, this alarming trend indicates the necessity of legislation more focused on protecting basic child safety around automobiles.
The bill, co-sponsored by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., would direct the secretary of transportation to establish federal standards on automobile safety devices for children. Until this bill is enacted, Americans who may have been negatively affected by a tragic child auto accident may need the advice of an auto accident lawyer
to protect themselves and provide recourse against unsafe automotive products.
