Horrific pedestrian accident may lead to wrongful death claim

Walking should be a safe and easy form of transportation. However, when sharing the road with motor vehicles, pedestrians sometimes encounter dangerous conditions. Such was the case for a woman in Dallas who, on a recent Friday afternoon, was simply going about her job in a neighborhood she often frequented and was run over by a dump truck. Her grieving family likely has grounds to pursue a wrongful death suit in a Texas civil court.

The 52-year-old mother and wife appeared to have the right of way at a pedestrian crosswalk when the large dump truck hit her while making a turn. The two men in the truck remained at the scene and spoke with police. Witnesses speculate that the driver may not have seen the woman, but according to police, he may now be charged with criminally negligent homicide.

A woman who owns a bridal shop in the neighborhood witnessed the horrific accident and prayed with the woman in her final moments. She is now praying for the terrible image of the victim's mangled body to leave her head. According to other workers in the area, conditions are frequently unsafe for pedestrians crossing the street. Speeding drivers often don't stop, even when pedestrians have the right of way.

This Texas woman's family is now left to mourn her loss. They are likely also left imagining the last moments of her life and wondering how much she suffered. Families in similar circumstances can also turn to the civil justice system to seek recovery of monetary damages. Nothing can undo a tragedy that has already occurred, but a successful wrongful death lawsuit can help with the financial losses that inevitably follow such a horrific loss.
