Fatal car crash leads to 1 death, 3 injuries

| Jul 9, 2021 | Wrongful Death

A man has sadly lost his life in a tragic car crash in Texas. Three other individuals were also injured in the collision, which occurred on a recent Wednesday. Sometimes, these types of crashes happen as a result of a driver’s negligence, which is grounds for litigation.

What apparently happened at the accident scene

The recent crash took place at about 9 a.m. Police said a car was speeding along a road and eventually reached a red light. The driver of the car then reportedly blew through the light by cutting through nearby traffic, then sped off.

The car reportedly ended up crashing into a sport utility vehicle’s driver’s side as the automobile exited a driveway. The sport utility vehicle then allegedly collided with a pickup truck nearby. The 41-year-old male driver of the sport utility vehicle suffered critical injuries in the collision and was therefore transported to a nearby medical center. However, he ended up passing away as a result of his injuries. The two individuals in the car and the pickup truck driver were also transported to medical centers with injuries considered not to be life-threatening.

How an attorney can help

The surviving loved ones of the man who died in the unfortunate motor vehicle accident may decide to file a wrongful death claim against the driver of the car believed to have caused the accident. Likewise, the three injured parties may be entitled to file personal injury claims against the car’s driver, seeking the reimbursement of monetary damages. Liability has to be established, based upon a showing of negligence, before claims for damages will be decided. If the plaintiffs are successful, they may receive damages to cover their medical bills, burial costs and other accident-related losses.
