A male victim, 27, whose identity is pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences, was killed at 1550 Dixie Farm Road about 2:30 a.m. on a Saturday morning late last month.

Reports say the accident occurred when the driver of a Ford Explorer was traveling westbound on Dixie Farm Road when, while attempting to pass a Nissan Frontier, the Ford struck the pickup truck. The driver of the Explorer lost control of the vehicle, causing it to roll over and eject both the driver and the passenger. 

The Ford's driver died at the scene; the passenger, also male, 31, was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital in serious condition. The driver of the Nissan was not injured and called police from a nearby convenience store before returning to the scene.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
