Most Texas drivers, from time to time, have experienced car trouble and have had to pull over to the side of the road to investigate further. Sometimes, this happens on a busy highway where the driver is vulnerable to passing vehicles. Such situations can result in a fatal accident, which, unfortunately, is what happened recently in San Antonio.
Sometimes an evening that begins as a fun night out with friends suddenly ends tragically. Sometimes this happens after a few drinks are consumed, leaving a person feeling invincible. This may have been the case when four young people in San Angelo were involved in a fatal accident.
Most Texas drivers, at one time or another, have been annoyed by another driver's actions while behind the wheel. However, some drivers take this annoyance to an entirely different level -- in fact, what is known as road rage -- resulting in an unsafe or even deadly situation. On a recent Monday, three vehicles collided on a road in North Houston resulting in a fatal accident, possibly due to a case of road rage.
Many Texas residents are safe drivers, and this attention to safety includes avoiding ingestion of any substances that may impair one's driving ability. Unfortunately, some drivers take to the road after they have been drinking, using illegal drugs or even misusing prescription drugs. Such was the case in a fatal accident involving a pickup truck and a church bus that took place last year.
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.
Summer is winding down in Texas, and schools are opening for the new school year. Parents are once again dropping off children at school, sending them off with a kiss and a wish for a good day and a good year. It is not a scene that one imagines interrupted by a heroic act and a fatal accident. Yet this was the scene in an El Paso school parking lot on the first day of the new school year.
Waking up to the smell of smoke and the sound of flames can be very unsettling and even terrifying. Such was the case in San Marcos, Texas, where an apartment complex caught fire early one morning in July. While smoke alarms and sprinklers can alert and wake residents of a structure that is on fire and allow them time to get out, this did not appear to happen in this instance. Five people perished in the fire, and a wrongful death suit is being brought by the parents of one of the victims.
Life is precious. When the life in question is that of a teenager, it seems even more precious. Then when that precious life is suddenly taken in a fatal accident on a Texas roadway, friends and loved ones are left to grieve and wonder how they can ever pick up the pieces.
A husband is mourning the death of his beloved wife and son who perished in a recent fatal accident. The woman's sedan was rear-ended on a Texas highway by an underage drunk driver traveling about 90 mph. The man and his wife's mother have filed a $40 million wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of the mother and child.
A family is in mourning today. They remain shocked and stunned that their loved one suffered an inhumane death the result of bedbug extermination. An elderly couple who lived in a senior living apartment were exposed to elevated temperatures resulting in the death of one and the hospitalization of the other. In Texas, the family has filed a wrongful death suit to avenge their family member claiming the woman died from hyperthermia due to negligence.
