Woman suffered years of surgeries after car accident

In 1999, a 20-year-old woman was leaving a party with friends when her life changed forever. She and the other occupants of the vehicle in which she was riding were involved in a horrific car accident in Austin. The other occupants did not survive the crash, and the woman suffered severe burns to most of her body.

The Texas crash was the result of an 18-year-old male driver who decided to operate the vehicle intoxicated. Reportedly, he lost control of his vehicle and crossed into the path of the woman's vehicle. The vehicles crashed head-on. The vehicle containing the young woman caught fire resulting in severe injuries to the majority of her body.

The burns she suffered caused her nose, lips and ears to fall off. At times, she had to have her eyes shut for her, and she suffered other limb amputations. In the process, the woman's appearance changed dramatically, but she used her story over the years to encourage others to think twice before driving intoxicated. Although she survived the crash and burns to her body, she sadly recently died from a battle with cancer at 40 years old.

The woman's story is not unusual. Individuals suffer daily and may suffer for years from injuries as a result of drunk driving accidents. Texas personal injury attorneys understand that medical needs for injuries may occur over years and can be financially crippling. Individuals who have suffered injuries from a car accident can seek advice and counsel from a skilled attorney about their legal options.
