Wrongful Death Litigation Often Follows Accidents Like This One
On behalf of Parks Law Firm, P.C. posted on Monday, September 9, 2019.
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.
Officials say another vehicle slammed into the newlyweds' car as they drove away from the courthouse. Sadly, the same justice of the peace who presided over the wedding ceremony moments earlier pronounced the couple, ages 19 and 20, deceased at the scene of the crash. To make matters worse, the groom's mother witnessed the collision, intensifying the sorrow of the situation and leaving her with emotional scars she says she will carry the rest of her life.
