Texas Highways can be Dangerous
It is always a bit risky to travel busy Texas highways. Motorists who act with negligence behind the wheels of their vehicles place all who share the road in danger. When a fatal car accident occurs, it is often found to have been preventable had it not been for driver negligence.
Losing a loved one in a motor vehicle accident that most likely could have been prevented intensifies the grief and anger often associated with such incidents. A family may be met with grave financial strain in addition to serious emotional trauma. Funeral expenses, medical bills for treatment rendered before death and other costs may result in serious debt that a family is unable to repay on its own.
Motor Vehicle Accidents are Devastating
In an accident that occurred on a recent Wednesday morning, a motorist is said to have failed to yield the right of way, which apparently caused a collision with another vehicle. A 24-year-old woman who was traveling as a passenger in one of the cars did not survive her injuries. Two others were reported in critical conditions and taken to a nearby hospital for urgent care.
Filing a wrongful death claim after a fatal car accident in Texas can be a stressful and complicated process. It is advisable to seek experienced legal counsel before pursuing such matters in court. An attorney who has successfully litigated similar cases can help identify possible sources of liability and determine the maximum amount of monetary recovery that may be sought for the losses one has suffered.
