Sadly, the consequences of accidents such as this one can affect the victim for life. This child is likely to have a difficult recovery in front of him, with no guarantee of full function in the future. As soon as the driver deemed responsible for this car crash is found, the victim's family may pursue a personal injury claim on the boy's behalf in a New Jersey civil court. In doing so, they will have the ability to seek relief for not only the current losses that this incident has created, but for any future damages as well.
