Here at Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys, we know that the winter season can be as dangerous as it is fun. A family in Oak Grove, Missouri knows that all too well after a sledding accident sent a 13 year-old girl to the hospital with critical injuries a couple of weeks ago.
The sledding accident happened during the first snow storm a couple of weeks ago. Johnny Hartwig had taken his daughter and a friend to a slope at Frick Park in Oak Grove. The girls were riding on a two person sled when they were unable to avoid collision with a tree. The 13 year-old victim immediately lost feeling in her legs and has been in Children's Mercy Hospital since.
A charitable fund has been set up to help the family.
Our experienced Kansas City child injury Attorneys want to remind all families to be safe this winter when playing outside. We are truly saddened by this accident and hope the girl injured in this accident makes a full recovery. Crippling injuries can be horrifying, especially when the victim is your child.
