Man Charged After Drunken Accident Causes Crippling Injury | South Bend Head and Brain Injury Lawyers

South Bend car accident causes brain injury and lands intoxicated man charges.

Head and brain injuries are some of the most debilitating injuries that an accident victim can experience. Victims of brain injury can suffer from depression, mood swings, lapses in memory, and multiple other harmful effects that can rob them of their livelihood. Indiana head and brain injuries can happen at home, at work, or while simply walking down the sidewalk, but one of the most common settings are during auto accidents. Following a recent South Bend car accident, a 17-year-old’s life will never be the same after suffering from a devastating and avoidable brain injury.

In early March, a 21-year-old decided to drive his SUV after getting loaded on a mixture of beer, whiskey, marijuana, and prescription pills. Not surprisingly, the young man’s intoxicated ride didn’t last very long as he sped along the South Bend and Mishawaka dividing line. He lost control of his SUV after hitting railroad tracks and smashed into the back of a car waiting at a red light.

South Bend car accident causes brain injury and lands intoxicated man charges.The 19-year-old driver of the car suffered from back pain, while an 18-year-old passenger’s forehead was cut and required 10 stitches to close. But it was the 17-year-old passenger in the backseat that received the brunt of the injuries.

He was trapped in the crumpled car and suffered a life-threatening head injury. Once rushed to a hospital, the immense pressure building in his bruised brain had to be relieved by removing a portion of his skull. Now after his South Bend brain injury, the teen is required to wear a helmet to protect his vulnerable skull and has trouble with ‘memory and rationalization’.

The 21-year-old intoxicated driver pleaded guilty Monday to two felony counts of causing ‘serious bodily injury while operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated,’ a charge that can carry a sentence of up to three years. He’s also considered a ‘danger to the community’ so he’s currently being held on an $80,000 bond for the DUI charges. But that number seems small when placed on top of his other $2 million bond set after he stabbed another man during an argument less than a month after the South Bend wreck.
