Recent Texas car accidents: 1 killed and 7 injured in crash

Many victims of motor vehicle accidents in Texas experience life-altering effects. Injuries may range from the slight to the critical, and although some may be temporary, others may be permanent. This may result in the victim not being able to work during the short term, or perhaps ever again. The accompanying medical bills of the victims of car accidents may quickly become insurmountable.

A car accident took the life of one individual and injured seven others recently. The accident occurred in New Braunfels on a recent Friday night in December. New Braunfels Police reported that the crash happened around 10:46 p.m.

According to their investigation, a vehicle exited a southbound interstate at reportedly high speeds and rear-ended an SUV. The force of the collision caused both vehicles to spiral out of control and come to rest in an adjacent field. The passengers of the SUV, a family of seven from Corpus Christi, were all rushed to local hospitals in New Braunfels and San Antonio while the driver of the first vehicle, a 53-year-old Luling man, later died of his injuries.

This crash is still under investigation. An individual who negligently operates a vehicle may be required to pay for documented damages that result. If the investigators determine that the driver of the first vehicle's negligence caused or contributed to the accident, the victims may be entitled to financial relief, payable from the driver's estate. Victims of car accidents typically consult experienced Texas attorneys to assess the validity of their claims and retain assistance to pursue claims for financial redress.
