Car accident in East Memphis ends with fatality

The most difficult part about being a personal injury lawyer has to be working with families who have suffered terrible and unimaginable losses. Yesterday, as I was driving to get my daughter, I passed an accident on Walnut Grove that left me praying for the safety of all who were involved.

I’m used to seeing pictures and scenes from car wrecks and could tell that this one seemed bad. And, as I do every time I pass a car wreck or see an ambulance, I began to pray for those involved in the accident and their family. Unfortunately in this accident their was a truly terrible loss. I found out today that a young teenage girl who attended Evangelical Christian School in Cordova lost her life in the wreck.

As a father of two children myself, I don’t know how parents and families work through the grief, sadness and void that is left after the death of a child. My heart is ripped out when I see these families. As a personal injury lawyer here in Memphis, it’s my job to try to help families after terrible events occur in their lives. But these types of cases are difficult emotionally for us lawyers. This is because we see the pain first hand and do our best for our cilents, but no matter what we do and how well a job we do, it’s never enough. It never will be enough.

There’s no dollar symbol that can be put on a lost life, no “formula” to apply to make things better. We wish these families were never put in a situation that leads to them becoming our client. In fact, I wish there was no need for me to practice as a personal injury and accident lawyer. Unfortunately this isn’t the case, and tragic events do still happen. And when something horrible does occur we’re here to help.

Again, mine and my families’ prayers go out to the family of this young girl.

P.S. My advice to the parents of this child and others who go through similar horrible events? Take care of each other and your family until you can breathe and start to half-way live again. Don’t even think about anything else until then.

I do not see any reason for me to list the name of the victim in this post. If you would like to read the Full Article on the accident you can view it here in the Commercial Appeal.
