Fatal Needville crash may lead to wrongful death claim

Traveling during the late evening hours can come with many risk to all motorist. It is extremely important for all drivers to remain alert and to be cognizant of other distracted drivers and wildlife such as deer. The traffic may be less dense during this time, but every precaution should be taken in order to stay safe during these hours and to prevent any potential wrongful death associated with these risks.

Sadly, a Texas high school is grieving the sudden loss of their very own dance team captain. Sunday, during the early morning hours, a pick-up truck traveling northbound crossed the center line into the southbound lane and tragically collided with a vehicle driven by the senior's boyfriend. Although the passenger vehicle attempted to avoid the collision, the truck ultimately struck the right front side of the Volkswagen. This unfortunate and possibly preventable collision led to the unexpected death of the high school senior. Investigation continues into what exactly caused the driver of the pick-up truck to veer into oncoming traffic.

Parents of high school seniors should be overwhelmed with joy while planning graduation parties, not planning a funeral. Losing a child to a sudden death due to the possible negligence of another motorist can cause overwhelming emotions. While the crash remains under investigation, the family and friends of the deceased continue to mourn, and questions remain unanswered as to why the pickup truck crossed the center line.

While the pain of losing a child may never go away, there are possible entitlements that the deceased person's family may be eligible for. A satisfactory ruling in civil court may provide the family with monetary funds to help alleviate any cost endured from the accident, such as funeral and burial costs. Texas families who experience a wrongful death should consider all their legal options before filing a civil suit against a potential responsible party.
