Texas trooper honored for helping victim of serious car accident

Texas first responders may be accustomed to arriving on the scene of someone's personal tragedy in the chaotic moments after a motor vehicle collision. However, they are not often recognized for the roles they play in helping victims of a serious car accident get their lives back. One man was recently honored for helping one such victim.

The accident occurred late last year. The trooper was one of the first on the scene of the wreck. A 22-year-old woman had suffered a critical injury to her spine. The officer was described as instrumental in helping to keep her immobile until the emergency medical team arrived on the scene.

Because her injuries were so serious, she was unable to feel the pain of the injuries. This may actually have helped the trooper to keep her still. The woman spent nearly two months in the hospital. Due in part to the trooper's first aid efforts, she was ultimately able to leave the medical facility under her own power.

The trooper's chief contacted the woman afterwards in order to ascertain how her physical recovery progressed after the car accident. At some point, the Texas department made the decision to acknowledge the trooper's heroic efforts that enabled her to recover her mobility. Even though this woman has experienced a remarkable physical recovery, she has likely incurred significant monetary damages through medical bills and associated losses. If her injuries were the result of another party's negligence, then she may have the option of filing a personal injury lawsuit against those deemed responsible.
