Failure to stop results in car accident, killing a young family

The impact of a fatal car accident is always life-changing to those who are left behind in Ohio. But when an entire young family dies in a car accident, the trauma can be overwhelming. There was a serious accident in Ashtabula that caused the deaths of four people.

The accident occurred about 11:30 one evening near West 58th Street and Adams Avenue. Four people were riding in a Toyota Corolla. They included a 22-month-old toddler, his 18-year-old father, his 19-year-old mother and a 47-year-old woman. The car was hit by a Dodge Ram truck.

According to the police report, the Dodge did not stop for a stop sign. The accident victims in the Corolla were all pronounced dead at the scene.  The driver of the truck suffered minor injuries. The accident is still under investigation, but alcohol and drugs may have been a contributing factor.

The death of a young family is a horrible pain to bear for those left behind. Their first concerns will be for helping the surviving family members deal with the trauma and to make funeral arrangements. While compensation and legal avenues may be far from a family's mind at such a stressful time, the family may benefit from having a confidential conversation with a personal injury attorney in Ohio. A knowledgeable lawyer can review the circumstances of the car accident and advise as to whether a civil suit against the parties deemed responsible is a possible option. A successfully litigated claim can assist with medical costs, funeral costs and pain and suffering.
