A prominent Houston entertainer is facing a potentially long road to recovery, following an accident that left him injured. Texas rapper Paul Wall was with his 12-year-old son when the crash occurred. As is the case in many car accidents, he sustained injuries he says continue to cause him pain. For the moment, no charges appear to have been filed against the other driver.
Information about this crash is limited, but it appears that Wall was on his way to a concert venue in Austin to perform a show when another vehicle struck his car head-on. Among those in the vehicle were Wall's 12-year-old son, but it is unclear how many other people were being transported. The cause for the crash is still under investigation, and it is unclear whether Wall was driving the vehicle at the time of the accident.
Wall says he was injured in the crash, mentioning that he is having difficulty walking, as well as experiencing head and neck pain following the accident. The report did not mention if his son or any of the other passengers were injured, nor does it mention if injuries were sustained by individuals in the other vehicle. However, Wall stated on Instagram that his son and the other passengers were "safe" after the crash.
When people are injured in car accidents, the effects can be long-lasting and sometimes even life-changing. Depending on the extent of his injuries, Wall could face serious long-term problems, including mobility issues, pain and other challenges. This is why Texas law will allow him and any other injured individuals to file personal injury lawsuits against the driver found responsible for the crash. This legal route can be taken even if police choose not to file criminal charges against anyone, though evidence of a driver's material contribution to the accident must be presented in civil court.
