Car accidents: Parking lot entryways are high risk areas

A Texas high school community is mourning a great loss after a tragic collision occurred at the entrance to the school parking lot. Such areas have been the scenes of car accidents many times in the past, often resulting in serious injuries or fatalities. Sadly, two teenagers lost their lives in the recent collision.

The victims were sisters. Reportedly, their mom was driving them to school. At some point, her car was hit by a logging truck. When a commercial vehicle is involved in a collision that results in injury or death to someone in another vehicle, the driver of the commercial truck and/or the employer may face full financial accountability for damages if a recovering victim or family of a deceased victim files a claim and proves in court that driver error or another form of negligence, such as lack of vehicle maintenance, was a causal factor in the collision.

The local sheriff's department indicated that the mom was turning into the school parking lot when the truck hit her vehicle. One of the girls who died was a freshman, the other a sophomore. The school indicated that it would provide counseling services for students and faculty due to the tragedy.

Car accidents occur for any number of reasons. Intersections, mergers and parking lots are areas where the risk of collision is high. In many instances, families who have lost loved ones later learn that the negligence of another party was a causal factor in their family members' deaths, in which case Texas law allows them to seek financial recovery for damages in civil court. There is no way to replace the loss of a human life, but compensation awarded by a court can help alleviate financial stress that may be associated with a particular incident.

  • Great Lawyer For A Reasonable Price

    Mr. Hulett was a very competent and effective lawyer for me in my custody case. Not only did we get the desired result but he did it for less than half of what my ex paid to her attorney on the same matter.
