Texas RV crash widow seeking damages from multiple parties

One man is dead after a fatal accident in Jefferson County. His widow filed a wrongful death suit earlier this month.

The fatal accident occurred on Highway 69 this past April when an RV owned by two individuals and operated by another person was being towed. They lost control and ended up blocking the north and south lanes of the highway. The victim died from injuries after crashing into the two vehicles.

The man and his wife who were towing the RV were both covered under an insurance policy, but that policy was apparently not enough to cover all the damages. The widow is therefore filing suit for actual and wrongful death damages against multiple parties. She is filing against the owners of the RV, the operator of the RV, the man towing the RV and the insurance company.

Filing a claim against all parties who may have been negligent is the best way to ensure that a plaintiff recovers all possible damages for the losses incurred. Families of wrongful death victims are often left with many expenses, making compensation a necessity. Families are often responsible for a great deal of medical bills, funeral expenses, lost wages and incidental expenses.

Texas is a comparative fault state. This means that a person can recover damages from other parties even if the person is also partially at fault, as long as the court finds that the plaintiff is not more than 50 percent responsible for the accident. Determining which parties were negligent is important, so that families can start to cover some of the damages incurred from their tragic loss.
