A fatal DWI accident in Texas shakes families and communities alike. It is surely devastating to know that a life due to purely negligent or even reckless conduct and that it likely could have been easily prevented. Family members in this situation and similar ones may find some consolation in knowing that they do have legal options when faced with the unfortunate events that often follow a DWI accident.
A Texas woman was traveling along the Gulf Freeway at the time of the crash. Another vehicle came up next to her and crashed into her vehicle. Reports claim the driver who hit her was traveling at a high rate of speed. Unfortunately for the victim, neither her vehicle or body could withstand the impact.
Both were crushed at the scene of the crash. The driver who apparently caused this accident was suspected of driving while intoxicated, and she was formally charged. She faces a charge of intoxication manslaughter and was detained as against a $30,000 bond.
Tragedies such as this DWI accident happen daily on roadways in Texas and across the country, as sad as it is to say. The pain of unexpectedly losing a loved one in a drunk driving crash is surely excruciating, and surviving families may find themselves grieving and worried about finances at the same time. Such deaths often come with significant expenses for medical and memorial costs, and families should not have to be burdened when a loved one’s life was taken by the negligent and senseless acts of another. Successfully filing and pursuing a claim against the driver who allegedly caused this DWI accident may help the family find the financial relief that they need.
