Texas man dead after fatal accident

A Texas car accident recently took place involving three vehicles. The incident occurred the morning of Sunday, Oct 20. One person died as a result of the fatal accident.

The tragedy took place around 3 a.m.. Two sedans were involved in an apparently minor accident in the Houston area. When one of the drivers exited his vehicle to assess the damage caused by the accident, he was hit by a third vehicle.

The man struck by the vehicle died at the accident scene. The two other drivers involved in the crash were not injured. The media report concerning the collision did not indicate exactly where the vehicles involved in the first collision came to a stop and did not note precisely where the victim was standing when he was struck by the third vehicle. There was no report concerning the status of any official accident investigation, though it is likely continuing in the aftermath of the collision.

If an individual is involved in a fatal accident in Texas, the surviving family of the deceased has the right to litigate a wrongful death lawsuit against any party or parties whose negligence is deemed to have caused or contributed to the fatality. In a successfully navigated claim, any party found liable would be required to provide financial compensation to cover any financial losses suffered as a result of the accident. Here, the driver of the vehicle that struck and killed the man could face liability claims, as well as any separate owner of the vehicle the driver was operating at the time of the fatal accident. If liability is established to the satisfaction of a civil court, demands for monetary damages that have accrued will be adjudicated.
