Fatal accident in Texas kills 6

Car accidents can have far-reaching and long-lasting effects, particularly in cases where fatalities occur. In a tragic turn of events, two teenage boys in Texas have been left without their parents, their brother and their uncle after a horrific crash. This fatal accident is said to have resulted from a high-speed chase led by an allegedly drunk driver, who was reportedly attempting to flee from police.

This terrible incident occurred recently in League City. According to local law enforcement, the driver of an SUV reached speeds of up to 100 mph before colliding with a sedan carrying four people. All four individuals in the sedan were killed in the crash -- a husband and wife, ages 41 and 38, a 13-year-old son and the wife's 25-year-old brother.

Little is known about the driver deemed responsible for this incident. Police claim this person was wanted for driving under the influence. Both the driver of the SUV and a passenger in the vehicle were also killed in the collision.

This fatal accident has without a doubt had a drastic impact on the lives of many people, including the two surviving children of the husband and wife in the sedan. While the driver deemed responsible for this collision may not have survived, wrongful death claims on behalf of each of the victims can be filed against the driver's estate. Claims that are successfully litigated in a Texas civil court may result in a monetary judgment with regard to the current and future financial losses resulting from the crash. These could include funeral expenses, loss of income, economic needs of the surviving teens and any other damages recoverable under applicable laws.
