Man dies in fatal accident blamed on intoxicated driving

Knowing the possibility of danger exists, some people still choose to drink and drive. That type of negligent action can result in a fatal accident or severe injury to another person. A family in Texas is grieving after a fatal accident.

A man in a sedan turned onto the southbound lane of a state highway and was immediately hit by a pickup truck. Emergency personnel arrived on the scene but found the driver of the sedan had already died. A woman and two children were passengers in the pickup truck and were taken to a nearby hospital. The injuries for all three were apparently not considered serious.

The driver of the pickup truck was not injured and, when questioned by police, told them the sedan ran the stop sign to pull out in front of him, making it impossible for him to stop. The story was corroborated by the adult passenger. However, the incident concluded with the driver of the truck being charged with intoxication manslaughter as well as DWI with a child passenger.

Not following the rules of the road can bring the loss of someone who was loved and on whom others depended. Surviving family of a fatal accident victim in Texas have rights and options when it comes to restitution via a wrongful death lawsuit. An attorney who has experience representing clients with similar claims can be a source of strength to someone who may not know the next steps to take. The lawyer can identify all potential sources of recovery and pursue a claim focused on securing the maximum payout of monetary damages for these types of cases.
