Recent Texas car accidents: 1 woman killed in 2-vehicle crash

A car accident can severely affect the financial, emotional and physical well-being of a victim and his or her family. In addition to injuries suffered, car accidents can leave victims with medical bills, lost wages, and other types of emotional and mental trauma. Though the aftermath of serious accidents is overwhelming, a Texas victim does not have to go it alone.

A fatal two-car accident recently occurred in Falls County, police said. The accident occurred on a recent Wednesday afternoon in November. The victim was a woman from Marlin.

The woman was driving in the southbound lane on State Highway 6 when an 18-year-old Arlington driver in the northbound lane crossed into her lane, colliding with her vehicle, police said. Both drivers were rushed to a local medical center in Waco, where the driver of the vehicle that was hit was pronounced dead. The driver of the allegedly at-fault vehicle is currently in stable condition.

When car accidents result in fatalities, the victims' loved ones may be entitled to financial relief. An individual who negligently operates a vehicle may be required to pay for documented damages, including burial expenses, medical bills and other end-of-life expenses. The victim's loved ones will be required to prove that the party believed to be at fault was negligent in a way that either caused or contributed to the accident and resulted in the death. Loved ones typically begin this process by consulting an experienced Texas personal injury attorney to assess the validity of their claim.
