Even if someone survives a car accident, it doesn’t mean their life won’t continue to be affected by that event. At Rhine Law Firm, our hearts go out to the three-year-old girl who was critically injured in a car accident near Huntersville, NC last week. Not only did the girl suffer severe head injuries in the crash, but she also lost her mother at the same time. The girl’s mother was taking her to daycare when they were rear-ended by a truck and pushed into oncoming traffic where they were hit again. Fortunately, the girl survived, but her life and the lives of her family members may be forever changed. Depending on the extent of her injuries and how the doctors are able to treat her, she could be left with brain damage and permanent physical disabilities.
If you have a child or a loved one who’s suffered catastrophic injuries in an automobile accident, you could find yourself facing significant financial and emotional hardships, both now and in the future. Depending on the outcome of this little girl’s recovery, her family may have to find a way to pay for things like special schooling, household modifications, future corrective surgeries, and much more. Even if the driver responsible for the accident was insured, their policy may fall far short of the total present and future costs of a victim’s injuries. If you find yourself in such a situation, you may be able to recover your losses through a wrongful death and personal injury lawsuit. For almost three decades, Wilmington’s Rhine Law Firm, P.C. has been successfully representing North Carolina car accident injury victims, helping them secure their future.
