Boy dies from traumatic brain injury, woman faces murder charges

A child was killed in a recent four-vehicle accident in another state. The 7-year-old boy died as a result of suffering a traumatic brain injury. When a victim suffers a that type of injury in Maryland -- including those that result in death -- they or their loved ones may consult a personal injury attorney in order to assess the situation and explore the legal options available.

The boy was a passenger in a car that was traveling north on a parkway on a recent Saturday. A car operated by a 56-year-old woman reportedly crossed the centerline of the roadway and collided with the car. Police say the wreck killed the young boy and injured five others in the same vehicle.

The boy, who was from Alabama, was rushed to a local medical center but was pronounced dead around 9 p.m. Police say the other driver was driving under the influence and was also involved in two separate car accidents -- one right before the accident that took the child's life and one shortly afterwards. Officials say she is currently facing a number of charges, including murder as well as first-degree homicide by vehicle, DUI and leaving the scene of an accident.

When an individual in Maryland suffers head trauma resulting from an accident -- no matter how seemingly minor -- long-term health effects and even death may result. Victims -- or in the case of a fatal brain injury, the decedent's surviving family -- may file a personal injury or wrongful death claim, as applicable, against the party or parties believed to be responsible.  To do so, an an experienced personal injury attorney who is well-versed in pursuing claims related to TBIs may be consulted.
