A man has sadly passed away in a tragic car crash in Texas. In addition, a woman has suffered serious injuries in the single-car collision. These kinds of crashes sometimes occur as a result of driver negligence, which can be grounds for litigation.
How the accident occurred
The recent car crash in East El Paso took place at around 5:30 a.m. on a Sunday. According to police, a 21-year-old man was driving a car on Interstate 10. Meanwhile, a 21-year-old woman was reportedly riding in the passenger seat at the time.
Authorities said the car then suddenly crashed as the driver lost control of it due to speeding and weaving among other cars at the time. The motorist passed away at the accident scene due to the injuries he sustained in the collision. The female passenger, however, survived the accident but suffered serious injuries and was therefore transported to a medical center.
Seeking help and support as a victim
The woman who was injured in the recent Texas accident may choose to file a personal injury claim, seeking the reimbursement of financial damages sustained in the crash. Even though the man who reportedly caused the car accident ended up dying in the crash, his estate may still be sued. In addition, anyone else with an ownership interest in the car he was driving at the time of the crash could be named in the lawsuit. Damages resulting from a successfully fought claim may help the woman to cover her medical center costs and other expenses stemming from the accident.
