Anyone who has ever traversed Texas roadways near on in Houston likely remembers how busy and heavily laden with traffic such roads can be. Many times, something can happen in an instant that changes lives forever when a fatal accident occurs. This seems to have been the case on a recent Saturday evening where road terrain and steering may have been crucial factors leading to a serious collision.
Two vehicles were involved in the crash that resulted in one man's death and injuries to several others, one of whom was a 10-year-old child. One of the drivers refused medical treatment after the accident. Most of those who were taken to the hospital are said to be faring well, although one woman is listed in critical condition.
Reports indicate that a car veered over the shoulder of the road where unstable terrain may have caused the driver to overcorrect her steering when she attempted to get the car back onto the road. Somehow, her vehicle wound up in the oncoming lane, and another vehicle smashed into hers. These types of car accidents often lead to litigation in civil court.
Anyone who has lost an immediate family member in a Texas fatal accident caused by another person's negligence, as well as recovering victims who survive their injuries are able to seek compensation for damages against any and all parties deemed responsible for such incidents. Plaintiffs in such situations must substantiate their claims. This is often more easily accomplished if they act alongside experienced representation in court .
