When can an estate administrator bring a wrongful death suit?

Most people know that surviving dependents can file a lawsuit against someone who causes a death. These lawsuits, called wrongful death actions, give surviving spouses, children and parents some form of compensation for a tragic and unnecessary loss in their lives.

A wrongful death lawsuit can help family members recoup medical and funeral costs related to a wrongful death. They also offset other forms of impact related to their loss, such as lost wages, loss of household services or even the loss of the love and companionship from their deceased family member.

Fatal car accidents may stem from drinking and driving

Two people's lives have sadly been cut short in a motor vehicle crash in Texas. Now, their loved ones are left wondering how these types of tragic car accidents can happen. However, a county medical examiner recently reported that the crash, which occurred in late 2018, was unfortunately the result of one of the two parties' decision to drink and drive.

According to authorities, the two individuals -- a 28-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman who were dating -- were traveling in a car at a little past midnight on a Sunday. However, the man, who was driving at the time, reportedly left the roadway and entered the median. Police said the car then went over a creek and struck an embankment.

Fatal injuries may result from head-on car accidents

A car collision recently claimed a woman's and a man's life in Texas. In addition, two other people suffered grave injuries in the car accident. Sometimes, these types of car accidents happen due to someone's carelessness behind the wheel, which is grounds for civil litigation in the Lone Star State.

The recent fatal Texas crash occurred at around 4 p.m. along State Highway 70. According to police, a 55-year-old woman was going north on the highway and suddenly went over the middle line. She reportedly entered the highway's southbound lane and collided head-on with another car that was going south on the highway.

Pedestrian-vehicle accidents: Causes of trouble

As a pedestrian, regardless of your location, you'll typically find yourself in close proximity to motor vehicles. As a driver of a motor vehicle, it's also, obviously, common to see pedestrians on the sidewalk, crossing the street and in many other areas.

Pedestrian-vehicle accidents remain a major concern, especially in large cities like San Antonio where there are a lot of people walking, jogging, running and bicycling.

Car accidents caused by speeding may lead to death, injuries

A car accident recently claimed the lives of two high schoolers in Texas. In addition, two high schoolers suffered injuries in the crash.

The recent Texas crash occurred along State Highway 43 South. Authorities reported that an automobile was going too quickly on the wet roadway. All of a sudden, it began to hydroplane and ended up leaving the roadway and striking a tree.

Drunk driving car accidents may claim lives in Texas

A man has sadly lost his life in a car crash in Texas, leaving his loved ones grieving over his loss and questioning how he could have been taken from them. The accident took place along the US 287 Highway. Sometimes, these types of car accidents occur due to the reckless driving of a fellow motorist, which is grounds for litigation.

The fatal collision took place at about 6:40 a.m. on the morning of New Year's Day. According to authorities, a 46-year-old man was on an exit ramp, going to westbound Interstate Highway 20. A 35-year-old woman was also on the exit ramp.

Did a third party cause your truck accident?

When victims of truck accidents begin building their injury claims, they often find that it is not a simple process at all. In fact, it may take a good deal of work to determine who exactly is responsible for the accident in the first place.

In many claims, either the consumer driver or the commercial driver is at fault, but not always. Sometimes, another party's mistakes or faulty components may cause an accident, and when this happens the victims must build a strong case that holds them liable. When third parties are liable for large, destructive accidents, the victims must focus their attention on creating a strong legal strategy that uses all the available evidence to seek justice.

Drunk driving may lead to fatal car accidents in Texas

A woman's life has sadly been snuffed out in Texas as a result of a serious motor vehicle accident. According to authorities, the fatal accident occurred due to another man's decision to drive while intoxicated. These types of car accidents are grounds for litigation in the Lone Star State.

According to authorities, a woman, 23, was driving a sport utility vehicle on a street with her son, 1, and her mother. However, all of a sudden, a man, 19, reportedly struck her head-on with a pickup truck. Police said that the accident occurred after the man went across three traffic lanes.

Car accidents: rapper Paul Wall injured in crash

A prominent Houston entertainer is facing a potentially long road to recovery, following an accident that left him injured. Texas rapper Paul Wall was with his 12-year-old son when the crash occurred. As is the case in many car accidents, he sustained injuries he says continue to cause him pain. For the moment, no charges appear to have been filed against the other driver.

Information about this crash is limited, but it appears that Wall was on his way to a concert venue in Austin to perform a show when another vehicle struck his car head-on. Among those in the vehicle were Wall's 12-year-old son, but it is unclear how many other people were being transported. The cause for the crash is still under investigation, and it is unclear whether Wall was driving the vehicle at the time of the accident.

Don’t miss gathering crucial evidence after a truck accident

It is easy to miss important evidence after a commercial truck accident, especially if your attention is focused on injuries. For many victims, truck accidents wreak havoc not only with physical injuries, but with the often overwhelming claim process.

If you recently survived a truck accident or find yourself caring for a loved one who suffered serious injuries in one, then you have a great deal of work to do while building a personal injury claim.
