An Oklahoma City family suffered unbelievable trauma this past month. At the beginning of the month, the family’s house caught fire. Left without a roof over their heads, the father stayed in the area to find a new place to live. The couple decided that the mother would take their two young girls to her parent’s home in Texas, but they never made it to their destination.
On the drive, the 21-year-old mother’s SUV ran off the side of the road. When it left the roadway, it flipped over several times. Incredibly, the 1-year-old and 2-year-old daughters both survived the collision with a couple of broken bones. The mother, however, suffered fatal injuries in the auto accident on Interstate 35.
Details of the accident were limited in the report, but what was clear was that the family won’t be the same without their wife and mother. “Honestly, part of me wishes it would have been me and not her,” said the husband. “She was such a wonderful person.”
The couple had been married for only two years, and like many young families, they didn’t have a complete estate plan. They didn’t have a will or any life insurance to cover this type of incident.
Personal injury lawsuits can provide for families under these types of circumstances. Compensation can help provide the tool that a family needs to get back on their feet, avoid financial problems or even simply help fill in the gap when a victim can’t get back to work right away.
