A woman has sadly lost her life in a car crash in Texas. Another woman was injured in the single-car collision, which occurred during the early morning hours on a recent Saturday. These kinds of collisions can easily occur due to a driver’s negligence, which can be grounds for litigation.
How the accident occurred
The Midland County crash happened at about 11:25 a.m. According to police, a 34-year-old woman was driving south toward Market 1787. All of a sudden, she reportedly lost control of the car and left the roadway.
Police said the car then rolled over before ejecting the woman. The woman ended up passing away in the crash. Another 54-year-old woman was riding in a passenger seat in the car at the time and survived the wreck. Following the collision, she was transported to a medical center, where her condition was deemed stable.
Where to turn for help and support as a victim of these instances
If authorities determine that driver negligence — such as distracted driving — led to the Texas accident, the injured female passenger might choose to file a personal injury claim, seeking the reimbursement of monetary damages. Although the driver of the car involved in the accident ended up passing away as a result of the crash, the claim may still be filed against her estate. Likewise, anyone with an ownership interest in the car may be sued. If the plaintiff is successful in her case, she might receive damages to cover her medical center expenses and other losses tied to the accident.
