A loved one is suddenly gone with no chance for one last goodbye or an, "I love you." This is often the case when an accident occurs due to the negligence of someone else. After the initial shock comes the grieving process and at some point, the prospect of taking action with a wrongful death lawsuit. Two Texas families have filed a wrongful death lawsuit after their loved ones were killed in a horrifying collision.
Every time people get in a car, whether it is a quick trip to the corner store or several hundred miles away for a vacation, they are risking their lives. In many cities across the nation, there seems to be one fatal accident after another any given day. Texas authorities are continuing their investigation into a fatal accident that killed a 19-year-old female.
One of the worst things about a sudden death is not being able to say goodbye. A fatal accident often takes that final farewell away from a grieving parent, spouse or child. According to a report from the Texas Department of Public Safety, a 9-year-old girl was recently the victim in an early-morning fatal accident.
Getting out on the road these days can be dangerous, whether a person is just going a few miles to the nearest market or traveling hundreds of miles for a long-awaited vacation. Another driver whose full attention is not on the road for any reason may cause a fatal accident, resulting in changes to the lives of a number of people. Texas police say alcohol consumption or drug use may have been a factor in a recent fatal accident.
The teenage years should be carefree and full of joy. Sadly, causing a fatal accident as a teen can cause repercussions that can continue far into adulthood. Two Texas teenagers died in a fatal accident that may have been the result of the negligence of a friend.
Most people who die in a fatal accident had dreams and goals they were working to achieve just minutes before they died. They had plans with beloved family members and close friends. They had their whole lives ahead of them until the actions of another person changed their futures. A Texas man has been arrested for his part in a recent fatal accident.
A number of states, including Texas, have a "share the road" law, meaning bicycles are to be treated the same as a motorized vehicle on the road. Motorists who do not follow this law are in great danger of causing a fatal accident. One cyclist was recently killed in an early morning fatal accident.
When behind the wheel, a driver must remain in a continual state of awareness of his or her surroundings. A driver who is not paying attention to the road can be a hazard to other drivers, bicycle riders or pedestrians by causing anything from a minor mishap to a fatal accident. A 73-year-old Texas man was killed in a fatal accident one recent weekend evening.
Driving near an 18-wheeler can be frightening. While there are a number of big-rig drivers who have never been involved in a fatal accident, there are some who have been the cause of some horrific catastrophes while driving on the nation's roads. A section of Interstate 20 that runs through Texas was the scene of a fatal accident involving an 18-wheeler and several smaller vehicles.
Those who have lost a loved one -- whether from a fatal accident, a disease or any other way -- typically go through several stages of grief in order to help process the loss. Even in their pain, adults may still be cognizant of the fact that they are able to move from severe anguish to reluctant acceptance of the loss, no matter how slowly the progression. However, children are not often able to handle their grief in the same manner as adults. Two children lost their mother, a 40-year-old Texas woman, in a recent fatal accident.
