I am seeking legal advice with regards to this matter:
I have a 6 year old son who has a 7 year old playmate. They play everyday usually with my son's bike. The day the accident happened I was in the office and the mother of the playmate was in their house. As per my son and my daughter's story, my son and 2 other kids were pushing the broken bike so it will move while the 7 year old playmate was riding. While the 3 kids were pushing,the one riding the bike bumped off a car that was parked on the street and lost control. The 4 of them fell on the ground with the one riding the bike being under all three of them who were pushing. The kid had a big bump on the head and kept on vommiting. When I came home the mother was asking me for financial help which I did not have as of that time since that was my last day of work. the company i worked for declared bankcruptcy.i advised her to get the child to a different hospital that can give them a ctscan without paying for it yet since its an emergency situation. she did not do it, instead they went to the same hospital the next day to get the ctscan. Scan results according to her was negative.no cracks or anything. but then the child stayed in the hospital for a week.when they saw that there was no development they insisted to take the child home against doctors orders.they signed a waiver.after 2 days the childs condition worsened and died.they were able to bring the child to another hospital but the doctors there told them that it was already too late and it will only be a matter of hours.the death certificate indicated the cause of death as BASAL MENINGITIS, nothing else. now they filed a case against me and my partner being the parents of the one involved in the pushing.asking us to be responsible for the death of the child and to pay for all the expenses they incurred. we faced each other at the PAO office. i offered that we can give them money in installmments or give them whatever we have if we get work. but she refused. we are financially challenged as of this time since my partner is the only one working as a family driver.what are my chances of winning this? can we ignore this case? this is a bit long but i tried to give all the info i could for this matter.please help me out.thanks in advance.
