Intoxicated driver responsible for wrongful death of 5

A fatal accident on a Texas highway has caused the wrongful death of five people. The driver of one of the vehicles has been arrested in connection with the tragic collision.

The accident occurred when a Toyota Rav4 crossed the solid lines on the highway and crashed into a Toyota Corolla traveling the opposite direction. All four occupants of the Corolla -- two children and their parents -- were killed in the accident. The passenger in the Rav4 was also killed as a result of the crash. It has been reported that the blood alcohol concentration of the driver of the Rav4 was more than twice the legal limit

The driver of the Rav4 was the sole survivor of the accident and now faces five counts of intoxicated manslaughter as well as five counts of criminal negligent homicide.

The untimely and wrongful death of a loved one causes deep heartache for the family of the deceased. Suddenly, instead of planning your lives together, you must deal with funeral arrangements, medical expenses and the prospect of life without that treasured person. You may face financial difficulties caused by the loss of a loved one's income to the family.

When a loved one is taken from you because of the negligent or criminal actions of another, you may desire to hold the responsible party accountable. For that purpose, you may wish to consult an attorney who is experienced in wrongful death lawsuits. Although no financial compensation can ever make up for the loss of your loved one, a successful wrongful death action could provide for funeral expenses, medical expenses and can include non-economic damages such as loss of companionship and the pain and suffering the survivor experiences as a result of the negligence of the responsible party.
