Day care van in head-on collision in north Harris County

An auto accident in the northern part of Harris County sent two people to the hospital recently. What makes the accident somewhat unsettling is the fact that one of the vehicles involved was a day care van with four preschoolers aboard.

According to the Harris County Sheriff's Office, the car accident happened shortly after 2 p.m. near the North Freeway and Parramatta Lane. Deputies allege that the driver of a small car lost control negotiating a turn and was involved in a head-on collision with the van.

Thankfully, none of the children in the van appear to have been hurt. Two adults in the van, however, were taken by ambulance to a local medical center. Their conditions were unknown at the time a news report of the accident was released. Three of the kids were transferred to another van and taken back to the preschool; a parent showed up at the accident scene and collected the fourth child.

When a person suffers serious injury due to the actions of a negligent driver, they have the right to seek compensation from that driver and his or her insurance company. An injured victim has the right to recover damages for pain and suffering, as well as lost income and medical expenses. In many cases the claim can be settled without going to court, but if settlement efforts are unsuccessful the claimant can file a civil lawsuit and go all the way to trial if necessary. With the assistance of an experienced personal injury attorney, a life that has been impacted by a car accident can be put back on the road to recovery.
