California car accident injures ten-year-old girl

An early morning incident left one home in ruins and a ten-year-old girl in the hospital. The California resident was injured when a car crashed through the wall of her home and ejected her into the back yard. The car accident is not the first for this family home, and the family wants the driver to be held accountable. 

At approximately 7 a.m. on August 18, a female driver lost control of the vehicle she was driving and crashed through a bathroom and two bedrooms of the family's home. She continued through the other side of the home, into the backyard, and into another home before finally coming to rest. Alerted by the sounds of the accident, the mother of the child went searching for her and eventually found her in the backyard.

The child, who was already disabled from brain cancer, was injured as a result of the crash. She suffered a broken arm and a broken leg. She was hospitalized due to her injuries. The family reports that this is the third time a car has crashed into their home, and they blame speeding drivers for the ongoing problems. 

The girl is expected to make a full recovery, but the family will be left with resulting hospital bills and trauma. Although no charges have been filed at this time, if the family chooses to pursue a case against the driver, claiming negligence, they may be entitled to compensation for the damages. Other California residents who have been similarly injured as a result of a car accident may wish to consult an attorney for an evaluation of their personal injury case.
