Texas car accident claims toddler's life, causes injuries to mom

A toddler lost his life in a tragic accident that recently occurred in the Lone Star State. Naturally, his surviving family members are grieving and questioning how his life could have been cut so short. The car accident took place along Texas 360 on a Monday morning.

The motor vehicle accident occurred at around 5 a.m. According to police, a pickup truck crashed into a car that was stalled on the highway. Police found a toddler boy in the car's back seat, where he was sitting in a car seat, and they found his mother outside of the car.

Both the boy and his mom were taken to the hospital. However, the boy, who was 15 months old, was later pronounced deceased. Meanwhile, the mom remained in the medical center. The driver of the pickup truck who allegedly struck their car suffered no injuries in the accident was reportedly cooperating with police.

The injured mother may decide to file a personal injury claim against the pickup driver. She may also opt to file a wrongful death claim against this driver, seeking the reimbursement of damages associated with her toddler son's death. A monetary award in a successfully fought claim may help with covering hospital bills, funeral costs and other losses stemming from the Texas car accident. It might also help with addressing emotional distress as well as pain and suffering resulting from the crash. Monetary damages cannot undo the events leading to the woman's injuries and her son's death, but it may help the woman and her family members to more easily move on from the life-changing wreck.
