A red Honda Accord driven by a 43-year-old collided with a bus that had been forced onto the wrong side of the road. It happened on Boynton Beach, Palm Beach County just blocks from the couple’s home, where they were raising their 13 and 11-year-old children.
A 13-year-old was in the car with her mom on her way to school. Amazingly, she emerged relatively unscathed. The 43-year old, who was cut out of the wreckage by firefighters, suffered multiple fractures as well as a shattered pelvis and damage to her arteries resulting in near-fatal blood loss.
It was later discovered she had broken her neck in a so-called hangman’s fracture injuries.
The 43-year old initially suffered from memory loss and delusions. She was confined to the ICU for three weeks, where she had a tracheotomy and a so-called halo apparatus screwed into her head for support. Her husband calls it a personal portable prison cell.
For her 53-year old husband, the most testing moments were dealing with his feelings of being powerless and unable to directly improve her condition.
5 were left injured after the crash according to the Florida Highway Patrol Department. Their identities have not yet been revealed.
Attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to distracted driving. “In my many years as a Personal Injury Lawyer I’ve helped many victims that were injured because someone was distracted and crashed into their vehicles. If you’ve been injured by someone because they weren’t paying attention to the road, please call me so I can help you get compensation for your damages.”
