Not being able to tell a loved one farewell is something no one wants to experiene. However, that is unfortunately the case after many a fatal accident. A 27-year-old Texas man will never get the chance to hear his family tell him goodbye or that they love him after he lost his life in a fatal accident.
A report stated two pickup trucks followed by a sedan were headed eastbound around 7:30 a.m. A third pickup truck came upon the line of traffic and ran into the rear of the sedan, causing a chain reaction of collisions involving all four vehicles. Initial investigation showed the driver of the third truck was going too fast at the time of the crash.
The driver of the sedan was killed immediately, but only one other person was reported to be injured. After he was taken to a local hospital, it was learned his injuries were not critical. He is expected to make a full recovery. Investigation into the accident has not concluded and no charges have been issued as of yet.
Although it seems the loss of a loved one in a fatal accident is unbearable, many family members are able to move past their grief to take action. Filing a wrongful death lawsuit is one step some families choose to pursue. Some need the money that an award will provide but others gain comfort from just doing something to hold the party believed responsible accountable. An attorney who has a comprehensive knowledge of the laws of Texas will be able to answer questions about all options for legal recourse.
