Every Texas driver has a responsibility to others on the road, to passengers and to him or herself to obey the driving rules of the state. When those rules are not observed, there is the potential for people to be seriously injured or even killed in a fatal accident. A 17-year-old girl died in a recent fatal accident as a result of ignoring the rules of the road.
When drivers do not pay attention to what they are doing while operating a vehicle, an accident often results. Whether a fender bender, one with serious injuries or a fatal accident, it has the potential to cause pain and suffering for many years to come. Texas police recently arrested a woman after a fatal accident claimed the life of another woman.
Some people refuse to acknowledge just how dangerous it is to drive after they have been drinking. Not only are they a danger to themselves, but their impaired abilities may cause a fatal accident, taking the lives of others who may mean so much to so many. A woman has been charged with intoxication manslaughter after Texas troopers say her decision to drink before driving resulted in a fatal accident.
A catastrophic storm finds most Texas residents retreating to the safest place in the house or to a storm shelter. Such a natural disaster in itself is enough to cause a fatal accident, but for seemingly fearless storm chasers, there is a greater potential for loss of life. Three people tracking a storm two years ago were victims of a fatal accident, and the mother of one of them is now pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit as a result.
