Brain Injury Truck Crash Victim Graduates High School/College With Honors?


Traumatic brain injury is one of the serious outcomes of a collision with a truck, which can leave the brain injury victim in a dire state.

Most of the victims do not make it through their injuries. But only a few survive as they manage to cope with the long-term disabilities as a result of the accident.

Most Traumatic Brain Injuries are Devastating – You Need Ehline Law

What a victim hopes for after an accident is that the trucking company at least pays for the damage. However, that is not the case as the company’s defendants do not cooperate during the claims process. Ehline Law and our personal injury attorneys work with brain injury victims to protect their rights and provide them with the resources they need to get their life back on track.

Gray Media Group Recent News Reports

On May 21, 2021, Bell County High School in Kentucky had 2 empty chairs in honor of students who could not make it to the graduation due to a devastating accident Thursday night within the week. The 18-year-old driver drove the vehicle into an oncoming commercial vehicle.

Sadly, One Young Man Died

One person from the accident died immediately, while the driver of the vehicle, another student, got sent to the University of Tennessee Medical Center to treat critical injuries.

The severely injured student remained in an intensive care unit at the university hospital as the students’ graduation commenced without the 18-year-old.

The accident sparked investigations, hoping to give the two boys’ family’s an answer as to what happened. Special reconstructionists got called onto the accident site to gather evidence and data to recreate the scene.

More Accidents, and More Death

On September 9, 2021, an SUV collided with a semi-truck on Highway 287, resulting in a severe truck collision. When the emergency services arrived to search for those involved, what they found during the search saw was shocking.

The accident left four young children dead, while one was critically injured and was immediately taken to a hospital for medical treatment. However, the injuries from the accidents were too much, and the fifth victim also passed away at the medical center, prompting UCHealth to issue a statement on behalf of the grieving family.

Counselors Were Necessary

The Wiley School district remained closed on the day of the accident, and they soon released a statement the same week on Friday, providing parents and students with grief counselors for support.

Miraculous Comeback: Community Members Support a Brain Injury Victim

The latest news reports paint a very grim picture of the chances of survival from a collision with another vehicle, however, in 2017, a 16-year-old high school student fought against all odds.

Accident Results in TBI

This One has a Happier Ending

The girl went through physical and speech therapy before finally graduating from her high school, where she finally stood for the first time after the accident. She received a scholarship for being resilient throughout the recovery period and got admission to Norfolk State University. Community members from the city rejoiced at the survival of the Chesapeake car crash.
