Texas community mourns tragic loss after fatal accident

For some people, it takes decades to make a difference in the lives of others. They may work hard to make something of themselves to leave behind a positive legacy. But one Texas girl touched many lives in her short 14 years simply through her contagious positive personality. Tragically, her life ended too soon as the result of a fatal accident allegedly caused by a drunk driver.

Close to 1,000 mourners came to a memorial vigil two days after the accident that claimed the girl's life on Thanksgiving night. Her friends spoke of the freshman cheerleader as someone whose kind heart brought comfort to anyone she met. Undoubtedly, her family is suffering greatly at the loss of this promising life, and many members of the community expressed their sorrow at the vigil and through social media.

The girl was traveling home in the back seat of her grandparents' car after spending Thanksgiving with them. In a 40 mph zone, a car doing nearly 70 allegedly ran a red light and broadsided their vehicle. The girl died of blunt force head trauma. Parents and school officials took the opportunity to impress upon the girl's devastated friends and classmates the potentially tragic consequences of drinking and driving.

Dealing with the death of a child may be one of the most difficult experiences a Texas parent can go through. Not only must parents face their own grief and help carry the burden of other loved ones, but they may also face the financial strain associated with medical bills and funeral expenses. While no financial compensation can ever fill the hole left by the death of such a shining light, seeking remuneration in a civil court can provide a grieving family with many benefits.
