Texas family struggles to recover after car accident

Recovering from a car accident is often a slow, painful process. In fact, many people find that they suffer pain or lack of mobility for years after being injured in an accident. Even more tragic may be watching one's child suffer such injuries. One Texas family anticipates dealing with the aftermath of a recent accident for many years to come, and they are already struggling financially to meet the mounting medical expenses.

A mother was traveling north on a Texas highway with her 4-year-old son in the car. The driver of another vehicle traveling beside the woman attempted to switch lanes and hit the mother's car. As the 28-year-old mother lost control of the vehicle, it struck a median divider and rolled. Both the mother and her son were ejected from the car.

The woman suffered an arm injury that required reconstructive surgery, but she has been released from the hospital. The little boy was less fortunate. He suffered a severe head trauma and is still hospitalized in a pediatric intensive care unit. Family members report that the child will eventually be moved to another hospital for rehabilitation, and they are concerned about being able to afford the cost of the necessary therapies and treatments.

Recovery from traumatic brain injuries is often unpredictable. An injury suffered at so young an age may result in decades of medical expenses, special educational needs and vocational therapy. While insurance and charitable donations may relieve the immediate need, parents thinking long term may consider other options for obtaining the care their children deserve. Many parents in Texas consult with an attorney who can help them examine the possibility of seeking compensation from the person responsible for the accident by filing a personal injury claim in civil court.
