A bystander can sustain injuries when a motorized vehicle veers off its designated travel area and into adjacent space. This may include any of the following:
For example, the following are some accident scenarios that can lead to bystander claims:
- Construction debris falls from a building or scaffolding and strikes someone; the accident is witnessed by a close family member.
- A parent witnesses a child being struck and killed by a driver.
- A child witnesses a parent electrocuted by a defective tool.
In the examples above, the bystanders may be able to pursue damages for negligent infliction of emotional distress. This type of harm can be especially difficult for children to withstand and can lead to psychological injury.
