Speed cited in Dallas car accident that killed 3 children

Car wrecks involving multiple fatalities are often attributed to late-night, intoxicated driving, but there are many which are simply caused by excessive speed and occur in broad daylight. With the demands of daily life, drivers feel the need to drive quickly from place to place, often ignoring traffic laws in their haste. Tragically, a car accident attributed to speed took place on a Texas road in late March. It took the lives of three small children.

Police report that a man driving westbound along a Dallas street at 5:30 p.m. struck a sedan containing a mother and her four children. The mother had stopped at a stop sign, and then tried to negotiate a left turn onto the eastbound side of the road. As she turned, she was hit broadside on the driver's side with a force that sent her car across multiple lanes of traffic.

The crash killed the three children in the back of the car. They were ages 11, 7 and 3. The 13-year-old in the front seat was taken to a local hospital in critical condition, while the mother suffered minor injuries. The driver of the car which initiated the crash suffered a broken ankle and is now facing charges of criminally negligent homicide.

Families and victims facing similar situations may want to gain an understanding about what legal options they can pursue. They may be entitled to compensation for the wrongful death of a family member, which could help pay the costs of medical expenses, funeral costs and other bills incurred due to a fatal car accident. It is important to seek a personal injury attorney experienced in handling these types of claims in Texas.
