Car accident results in severe injuries for 7 year-old girl

It is always tragic when a person suffers a serious injury in an accident, even more so when that person is a child. One such car accident occurred earlier this month and resulted in what many parents may consider to be one of their worst nightmares.  This crash is the reason why a 7-year-old girl is currently a patient at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston.

Authorities say that this accident occurred on a Saturday afternoon in Newnan around 5 p.m. The little girl was seated behind her mother in the car. Reports say that a minivan crashed into their vehicle as the mother was attempting to turn left onto another street. When Georgia State Patrol arrived on the scene, the child was rushed to the hospital for treatment.

Upon arriving at the hospital ,it was revealed that the girl had suffered damage to her spinal cord, a collapsed lung and brain swelling. Doctors have told the family that there is a strong possibility that the injuries their child suffered will cause her to be a quadriplegic. The girl's family has started a GoFundMe campaign in order to help raise the money for her medical treatment.

Accidents that result in injury are, unfortunately, an a common occurrence. However, it always seems more difficult when a child is the one who is injured. Georgia residents who have been involved in a car accident that resulted in personal injury could benefit greatly from seeking the advice of an attorney. Victims or their families may be entitled to compensation for medical costs and other documented items of financial damages.
