Thousands of motor vehicles share the roads in Texas on a daily basis. At any given moment, a collision may take place, causing traffic jams and resulting in potentially serious injuries to victims. A recent commercial truck accident occurred suddenly when one vehicle hit another on the highway.
The tragedy took place on a recent Monday morning on Interstate 20. The operator of a commercial vehicle reportedly struck a pickup truck that was attempting to enter the highway. The driver of the pickup was seriously injured in the collision and was transported to an area hospital for emergency care.
A passenger in the pickup truck suffered fatal injuries in the crash. Family members later came forward to identify their loved one. The commercial truck driver escaped the accident without injury. A section of the highway was closed to traffic in the aftermath of the collision.
Understandably, it is tragic when a family suffers the untimely death of a loved one in a Texas truck accident. Depending upon the circumstances, grief may be exacerbated by the stress of unexpected financial debt which many families are unprepared to face. Such costs may be alleviated by court-awarded compensation that can be obtained through successful litigation in a civil court. Immediate family members may act on behalf of deceased loved ones in order to file wrongful death claims to seek justice against those deemed responsible for victims’ deaths. A first logical step to take in the process would be to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer to request a review of one’s case.
