Widow of Texas fatal accident victim takes legal action

Losing a loved one in a motor vehicle collision is a devastating tragedy that many in Texas have experienced. In situations where it is believed that another motorist's negligence or recklessness behind the wheel was a causal factor in a family member's death, it is possible to pursue justice through the legal system. A woman whose husband was recently killed in a fatal accident has filed a lawsuit against the driver that was criminally charged after the crash.

Apparently, the woman and her husband had been traveling together when they experienced car trouble. The husband was reportedly changing a tire on the side of the road when another vehicle struck him. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the horrific accident.

The woman herself also reported that she was injured in the crash. She has included her estimated future medical bills and expenses among damages listed in her legal claim. A jury trial has been requested in the case.

The motorist believed to have been responsible for the recent fatal accident in Texas is now facing multiple criminal charges, including intoxication manslaughter and intoxication assault. In a successfully litigated civil case, compensation can be awarded by the court that will help an immediate family member of a deceased victim cover the costs of funeral expenses, medical bills and other financial debts associated with the accident. In addition, loss of consortium, loss of future wages and emotional pain and suffering can often be included among damages in a wrongful death claim.
