Family seriously injured in motor vehicle accident

Car crashes are never welcome events, but some of them can be particularly devastating. One Arizona family is dealing with just such a tragedy after a father, mother and their 5-year-old daughter were hurt in a recent collision. Healing from the serious injuries the family suffered after the motor vehicle accident will take time and so will the police investigation into exactly what happened. 

Authorities say that the crash happened on a recent afternoon after the two parents picked up their daughter from a relative's home. Their car was attempting to make a left turn when, according to police, a truck struck the vehicle. The 5-year-old girl was rushed to a nearby children's hospital with serious injuries that required doctors to put her into a medically-induced coma. The girl's father was significantly injured, but has since been released from the hospital. The mother is conscious and still in the hospital receiving treatment for her injuries.

The police have not finished their investigation and, as such, have not released details regarding whether charges will be filed. The driver and passenger of the truck were uninjured. Friends of the family have rallied around them and everyone is optimistic about the young girl's recovery.

Even if police decide not to file criminal charges against the driver of the truck, he or she could face a civil lawsuit from the injured family. Those in a similar situation may find that litigation is the most effective means to procure financial damages that may be useful in covering costs related to the motor vehicle accident. An attorney here in Arizona with experience in personal injury law may prove to be a valuable guide in this kind of scenario.
