The likelihood of a fatal accident is not dependent on the number of cars and trucks on the road. Although there are usually more vehicles on the road during the daytime, a fatal accident can occur just as easily while most people are in bed for the night. Police arrived on the scene of a recent collision sometime after midnight to find a Texas woman had been killed.
A fatal accident in Texas can be the result of a number of actions. Distractions from cell phones, passengers, other cars or intoxication from alcohol or drugs can all keep a driver's focus from the road, which can lead to a fatal accident. A recent report tells of the death of a passenger in a single-vehicle wreck.
Psychiatric malpractice in Texas is treated generally the same as any other claim for medical negligence. If the psychiatrist rendered sub-standard, careless treatment to the patient and injured the patient as a result of that treatment, the doctor would be liable for medical malpractice damages to the patient. Many claims against psychiatrists attempt to collect for the suicidal death of the decedent while he/she was under the care of the psychiatrist.
Texas residents who have lost loved ones in a fatal accident may, at some point in their lives, move on, but they may never fully get over the loss. Whether the deceased was a teenager or a great-grandparent, the void of a physical presence can be overwhelming to those closest to them. Three teenagers and a 32-year-old woman were involved in a recent fatal accident.
