Nine-Year-Old North Carolina Boy Dies In Single-Vehicle DUI Crash

When a drunk driver injures or kills another person in an auto accident, the victim’s family has a legal right to seek compensation for financial recovery of their losses, including medical expenses, funeral costs, lost present and future wages, and pain and suffering. Lawsuit funding can help pay the bills in the interim so plaintiffs can fight for the compensation deserved.

A wreath with a black ribbon now hangs on a telephone pole as a small reminder of a 9-year-old boy who lost his life to a drunk driver.

The child was riding in a Dodge Caravan with his father’s finance when the woman ran off the road and hit a stop sign before slamming into a utility pole. The force of impact split the pole in half. The young boy was taken to Duke’s Children’s Hospital in North Carolina where he died from injuries sustained. The driver suffered minor injuries. Neither the driver nor the child were wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.

The woman has been charged with driving under the influence, but also faces one felony count of child neglect. She also has a history of driving infractions, including driving under the influence.

The family has set up a GoFundMe account to help the family pay for Julian’s medical and funeral expenses.

Although it may be difficult for surviving family members to think about taking legal action following the loss of a loved, a wrongful death lawsuit is the only way to hold the negligent driver accountable for her actions and for the family to seek compensation for damages.
The loss of a family member almost always results in financial difficulty for the victim’s survivors. Unfortunately, a lawsuit can still take months, even years before a settlement is reached. If the GoFundMe account isn’t enough to pay the bills, the family can seek immediate financial assistance from Lawsuit Financial.
