Auto accidents: head-on accident kills parents, daughter

The holiday season is usually a time for joy, reconnecting with family and enjoying some well-earned time off. For one Texas family, the holiday season was transformed into a time of grieving. Two Texas parents and one of their children were among several who were killed in a car accident the day after Christmas. For many families, learning how to move on after these types of auto accidents can be difficult.

On Dec. 26, 2018, the parents were traveling on State Highway 206 with their two daughters. At the same time, a 37-year-old man was driving a van on the same stretch of highway. Police reported that road conditions were particularly wet that day because of rain, so all drivers should have been exercising the necessary amount of caution behind the wheel. Despite this, the van's driver ended up losing control of his vehicle, crossed the center yellow line of traffic and struck the parent's vehicle head-on.

According to police, four people -- including the parents -- died while still at the scene of the accident. Both their 14 and 15-year-old daughters were transported to an area hospital for treatment, but sadly the younger girl died from her injuries less than a week later. In total, six people survived with injuries.

Surviving head-on auto accidents can be traumatizing, and victims often need financial relief to realize the best possible recovery. Achieving this compensation is sometimes possible through the careful actions of a personal injury claim, which can provide compensation for things like medical bills and lost wages. For Texas families who have lost loved ones in deadly accidents, a wrongful death claim is a more appropriate option for securing necessary legal recourse.
