Vehicular accidents can be devastating to all who are involved. Car crashes often result in severe injuries, property damage and loss of life. Such was the case for one Ohio family when a stay-at-home mother drove to pick up her kids from school on Jan. 11.
The 29-year-old mother was driving down Manchester Road in the afternoon toward Pfeiffer Elementary School, with her 4-year-old daughter in the car, on her way to pick up her other two children and her niece, when another car crashed into her. The man who allegedly caused the car accident was accused of a series of bank robberies and was wanted by the police.
The alleged bank robber drove through a red light at an intersection and hit the driver's side of the victim's SUV, causing it to spin onto a curb and hit a pole. The woman suffered a sprained neck and concussion and was later released after receiving treatment. Her young daughter was also injured.
When police announced the suspected bank robber's arrest, the mother and her young daughter were not named nor were their injuries mentioned. The stay-at-home mother stated she is upset that there was no mention of her 4-year-old daughter's injury. No she has no car and piles of medical bills along with three children to care for. .
Not all car accidents are preventable, but that does not mean someone cannot be held accountable. Victims who suffer serious injuries or damages from an auto accident may wish to consider legal action such as personal injury claims. A personal injury claim can help car accident victims seek compensation for medical bills and other related expenses.
