Mother and son killed in accident: Who is responsible?

A young mother and her toddler where killed in a pedestrian-auto accident. Mom and son were walking along Padre Island Highway when a man in a sports utility vehicle veered off the road and struck them. Both died of injuries sustained by the accident.

The driver, Gustavo Munoz, was charged with one count of criminal negligent homicide after the toddler died, and an additional charge is expected to be added now that the mother has passed as well.

What will you lose if you suffer a brain injury?

Without ever having looked at the settlement for a multi-million dollar personal injury claim, most people could tell you that suffering a brain injury is not only incredibly serious, but costly as well. From lengthy hospital stays, multiple surgeries, prescriptions to long-term rehabilitation, brain injuries can end up costing someone hundreds of thousands of dollars -- even millions -- over the course of their lifetime.

Ankle fractures are a common injury that people can sustain in car accidents and can range widely in both severity and unintended consequences.
