Girl in coma after alleged drunk driving crash

A five-year-old girl from the greater Houston area is still in a coma after a car crash that law enforcement believes was related to drunken driving. She has already had one operation and is scheduled for another surgery in the near future.

The young girl was traveling with her aunt on an area Interstate when another car, driven by a young man whom police and prosecutors have since charged with crimes related to drunk driving, collided with the aunt's vehicle. The force of the impact was so powerful that both vehicles came to rest upside down following the accident.

The man who is apparently responsible for the accident has since bailed out from jail and is awaiting his next court date. The parents of the child are trying to raise money for the medical expenses that they will have to cover.

Accidents involving brain and spine injuries to children are particularly hard to understand, especially when they seem so preventable. In this case, it isn't clear whether this young girl will even survive this accident, much less make a full recovery so as to be able to live a normal life again. Her parents will be strapped not only with current medical bills but ongoing rehabilitation expenses.

Moreover, there is an obvious emotional cost to this accident, in that both the child and her parents are going to have to go through a lot to live a normal existence again and may never fully recover from this accident on an emotional level.

Although more details about the accident will likely come forward after further investigation, the parents should even now begin evaluating their options. Particularly, they may want to consider filing a claim against the alleged drunk driver for compensation.
