Family members may seek compensation after fatal car wrecks

Sadly, many Texas residents lose their lives in car accidents every day. This is a reality that is truly unfortunate and, in numerous cases, very preventable. When loved ones are lost in fatal car wrecks, it is understandable for surviving family members to question exactly what happened. In doing so, some may find that negligence contributed to the cause of the accidents.

Recently, in Southern Texas, an accident that occurred on wet roads resulted in the deaths of two individuals. The vehicle of an elderly couple, who were out on the road in the early morning, was struck by an SUV. According to reports, the driver of the SUV apparently lost control of his or her vehicle due to the water on the roads, spun out and collided with the couple's car. The victims, a 69-year-old female and a 76-year-old male, were killed in the wreck.

The driver of the SUV suffered minor injuries in the collision. He or she was transported to a medical facility nearby for care. It is unknown if this individual will be facing any criminal charges with regard to this tragedy.

While weather conditions can increase the chance of accidents occurring, actions taken by Texas drivers in those conditions often lead to fatal car wrecks. In this particular accident, it is unknown if cell phone use, speed or any other form of negligence played a role in the collision. If negligence is suspected, the victim's surviving family members would be well within their rights to seek compensation for the financial losses they have suffered. This can be accomplished by filing, and successfully litigating, wrongful death claims for each victim against the driver deemed responsible.
