Young Child Killed in DUI Accident
Driving under the influence can harm not just the person driving the car, but anyone who comes in their way while they are driving. A DUI crash can break up entire families, while leaving the survivors stuck in a mountain of debt that is almost impossible to get out from under. Where can you turn when this happens?
That is a question that the parents of an 8 month old in Smyrna who was killed are asking. The car carrying her, her sister, and their intoxicated mother hit a taxi cab on Windy Hill Road. A pet was also in the car, and none of the children were restrained. The driver of the taxi was also injured, although not seriously.
The death of a child is never easy, but the drunk driver could face other charges and settlements. Since she willingly put lives in danger, the driver of the taxi could seek damages against her to pay for his car that was totaled, any loss of income that he has, or any medical bills that accrue while he is recovering.
