For this young man to show such resiliency in the face of irreversible damage should not only serve as an inspiration to accident victims, but also as a warning to drunk drivers that their actions have serious consequences.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) October 09, 2013
Dallas car accident lawyer Tom Carse said a recent news story about a young Texas man living with traumatic brain injury serves as a reminder that serious accident victims can often face a long and complicated road to recovery.
A recent WFFA.com story (“For victim of traumatic accident, going to work isn't a job, it's a joy,” August 30) chronicled the life of a drunk driving accident survivor two decades after a crash left him with traumatic and irreversible brain damage. The story said the 23-year-old man, Cole Jolley, now is working part-time at the Keller Home Depot store, where he is popular among co-workers and customers alike.
“Those who have been seriously injured by a drunk driver sometimes face what might appear to be insurmountable odds in recovering from their injuries,” said Carse, who represents victims of negligence and families who lost loved ones in accidents. “For this young man to show such resiliency in the face of irreversible damage should not only serve as an inspiration to accident victims, but also as a warning to drunk drivers that their actions have serious consequences.”
According to WFFA, Jolley was just 7 weeks old when his family was involved in a head-on collision that was caused by a drunk driver. Jolley suffered traumatic brain injuries that resulted in a lifetime of complications, according to the story.
While the article reports that Jolley faced a long road to recovery, his positive outlook – when combined with a little help with the Easter Seals of North Texas – has helped him live life to its fullest. He told WFAA that he loves “just having a job.”
“This story sends an overwhelmingly positive message to the victims of drunk drivers that although the deck might seem to be stacked against them, hard work and determination always pays off,” said Carse, a car accident lawyer in Dallas. “We know how unfair traumatic accidents are for victims. At our law firm, we have seen first-hand the devastating impact of drunk driving accidents. Personal injury attorneys help victims and their families pursue the compensation and closure they deserve. A lawyer also can help victims and their families send a strong message that drunk driving will not be tolerated in Texas.”
