Car Accident Lawsuit in Fayettesville

A Fayettesville woman filed a lawsuit in an auto accident case against a Springdale, Arkansas on her own behalf and on behalf of her one year old daughter. The lawsuit alleges that the unborn child had accident-related complications before and after her birth including a Grade 1 intraventricular hemorrhage and that the child had periods in which she stopped breathing.

As a parent, I can only imagine the fear of harm to your child when you are 35 weeks pregnant and involved in a serious car accident causing these complications. Thankfully, I have to think the child did not have any long term injury or the lawsuit – for a one year old – would be incredibly premature because injuries to a small child are rarely discernable in scope until the child is older.
