If the accident was my fault but the child in the other car wouldn't have been hurt if she was wearing a seatbelt I'm I responsible for her injuries?

Interesting. My best guess is that you will be ticketed for the accident, and the driver of the other car will be ticketed for not having the kid strapped in. As far as fault for the kids injuries lies, ultimately with you. If the accident had not occured, the kid would not have been hurt. Both you and the other driver are going to get fined, but I think you are going to get the worse end of the bargian.
