On Behalf of | Aug 1, 2023 | Wrongful Death |

A child was killed in a motor vehicle wreck in Texas. An adult has also been injured in the accident. The crash involved three cars and took place on a recent Saturday afternoon.

How the motor vehicle crash occurred

The recent Texas car accident occurred at about 12:30 p.m. According to police, a car was going east along U.S. Route 30 in Franklin County. Police said the car slowed down as other vehicles moved over for a medical emergency vehicle stopped along the shoulder on the roadway.

A pickup truck was also going east and reportedly hit the first car and a sport utility vehicle that had stopped on the eastbound shoulder. The driver of the first car suffered injuries in the crash and was transported to a nearby hospital. A 9-year-old child riding in the car was killed at the scene of the tragic accident. Authorities continue to investigate the wreck.

How an attorney can help

The injured adult may decide to file a personal injury claim against the pickup truck driver who allegedly caused the Texas car accident. Likewise, the surviving family members of the child who passed away in the crash may choose to file a wrongful death claim against the pickup truck driver, seeking the reimbursement of monetary damages sustained as a result of the accident. Liability must be established, based upon a showing of negligence, before claims for damages will be considered. Successfully litigated claims may result in damage awards to cover the hospital expenses and funeral costs stemming from the car collision.
