Fatal accident in Texas claims the life of a child

Regardless of how or why it occurs, the death of a child typically has a devastating impact on a family. However, there are situations where the cause of death is highly preventable. Knowing this can leave a child's family not only grieving their loss but angry, confused and filled with questions. A family in Texas recently lost their son in a fatal accident at the hands of an impaired driver. 

In mid-August, a 4-year-old boy was killed after a car slammed into his home. He was asleep at the time of the crash. According to reports, this incident occurred because the driver of the vehicle, a 24-year-old male, lost control of his truck at a curve in the road. The child is survived by his parents and five siblings. It is unknown if any other family members were injured in the incident.

Police believe the driver was intoxicated and speeding at the time of the crash. This individual has been arrested and is facing two charges, one of which is intoxicated manslaughter. According to a video that accompanied the report of this accident, bond has been set in this case at a total of $50,000 -- $25,000 for each charge.

Along with the emotional consequences that this fatal accident has placed upon the family, the financial consequences have also been quite severe. If they choose to do so, it is possible to seek the entry of a monetary judgment for the losses they have sustained by filing a wrongful death claim in a Texas civil court. If managed successfully, taking this action could result in the recovery of financial losses, as well as compensation for any other applicable damages.
