Tragic motor vehicle accident kills two, severely injures one

Even though we don't like to admit it, when we get out on the road, there is a certain risk that one might get involved in a motor vehicle accident. One doesn't expect that when they are sitting in the safety of their own home, which is why the recent car crash that took the lives of two in Indiana is such a shock to the community.

According to police reports, a 17-year-old driver was driving westbound when she went off the right side of the road, traveled more than 100 yards, flew in the air and slammed into the side of a home. The car entered into the home's living room and nearly came out the other side. The accident ended up causing the deaths of two children, another 17-year-old and a 9-year-old and also caused severe injuries to the children's mother.

Police claim that not only was the teen driver driving at 107 mph at the time of the crash, but she also had opiates in her system at the time. She is facing several criminal charges in connection with the accident.

Those who have lost loved ones in a car crash can never fully get over their loss and come to terms with what happened, especially when the decedents are young children who have their whole lives in front of them. Regardless of whether criminal charges are pursued or not, it may also be possible to hold the negligent driver financially responsible for their behavior as well. Though it is never possible to quantify what they have lost, family members often have to deal with the harsh realities of the accident, such as medical bills, funeral expenses, counseling to get over their grief, and lost wages-all of these can be recovered in a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
