A firefighter and members of his family were seriously injured in a recent accident in another part of Florida. The young daughter of the firefighter suffered critical injuries and she was struggling to survive and recover.According to reports, the car accident happened because one vehicle ran a stop sign and struck the side of another vehicle in the intersection. The initial impact started a chain reaction that ultimately involved four vehicles. All in all, 5 people had to go to the hospital for treatment of their injuries.
The firefighter who got hurt is only 23 years old and had served on his fire department for two years. It was not clear how his own injuries will impact his ability to continue working as a fireman. The man’s wife also suffered injuries the authorities described as serious.
This family, like others in similar situations, no doubt has a long road ahead of them. Accident victims usually need months if not years of ongoing medical care and treatment. That is just to heal the physical trauma, not the emotional one. When children are involved in accidents, there are added considerations to be made as to the quality of life they will have after the crash.
After a crash takes place, there is generally an investigation to determine who is at fault for this accident and to what extent. Chain reaction accidents are particularly difficult to investigate since there are so many elements at play. An experienced personal injury attorney can help victims with their accident investigations so that they can be sure that they get the compensation that they both need and deserve.
