Fiery car accidents may lead to significant injuries, death

One man recently lost his life in a tragic automobile crash involving four cars in Texas. Three other people were also injured in the fiery collision. These types of car accidents may happen as a result of a driver's careless behavior behind the wheel, which is grounds for litigation in the Lone Star State.

The recent crash took place at around 5 a.m. along Northeast Loop 820. Authorities said that when they arrived at the scene, they saw that one of the four cars involved in the collision was covered in flames. However, citizens had pulled the 59-year-old driver from the fiery car, and authorities were able to extinguish the fire. Still, the driver ended up passing away at the crash scene.

Two other people involved in the wreck, which caused heavy damage to the three other cars involved, received treatment at the scene for their injuries. Meanwhile, one was taken to the hospital for treatment. Authorities continued to investigate the cause of the crash.

If police discover that one of the injured parties caused the fatal collision, the surviving loved ones of the man who died in the crash may decide to file a wrongful death claim against this person, seeking the reimbursement of damages associated with these types of car accidents. Likewise, the other injured parties may file personal injury claims. However, if the deceased driver is found to have caused the collision, the injured parties may file personal injury lawsuits against his estate and anyone else with an ownership interest in the car he was driving at the time of the Texas accident. Competent proof of negligence is necessary to establish liability in civil court. Only then will claims for damages be decided.
