Many Texas families will likely have their 2019 holiday season interrupted by tragedies stemming from motor vehicle collisions. Numerous issues, such as distracted driving, driver intoxication and recklessness may be causal factors in such crashes that, for some, will result in the unexpected deaths of loved ones. The state allows immediate family members of accident victims who are fatally injured to file a wrongful death claim when they believe another person or people's negligence was responsible for a loved one's death.
Tragedy struck in Texas this week after a young couple got married at a courthouse. The pair had dated each other off and on since they were in their youth. Moments after they left the courthouse, they were involved in a deadly collision. In situations like this, family members of fatally injured accident victims often file wrongful death claims in court.
Every licensed driver in Texas or any other state must adhere to all traffic laws and safety regulations each time they get behind the wheel. Such laws may differ from one state to the next, so it is up to an individual driver to make sure he or she is fully aware of the laws in the state where he or she is planning to drive. Driver negligence or reckless behavior often results in fatalities; such tragedies also often lead to wrongful death claims when grieving family members of deceased accident victims seek justice on their loved ones' behalf.
Weather can be calm or it can be stormy. Calm weather is peaceful and calls to people to come outside and enjoy it, while stormy weather chases most people inside to seek safety and shelter. Stormy weather has an entirely different effect on storm chasers; they head outside and follow the storm to see if it will turn into a more serious storm, such as a hurricane or a tornado. They follow a storm at high speeds in order to keep up with it and document via video what they find. Such a pursuit recently ended tragically and with a wrongful death lawsuit in Texas.
