North Texas Man Dies Following Taser Incident

A robbery suspect died at a Dallas hospital earlier this month after resisting arrest and then being stunned by a Taser device, reports say.

Freddie Lockett, 30, died after being shocked after an altercation with a man in a parked car whom he evidently attempted to rob, reports say. The robbery victim told officers he had been attacked by Lockett, but escaped through the passenger-side door and ran to a convenience store to call for help. While he was in the store, Police arrived, saw the man matching the description of the Lockett and, and when they tried to talk to him, he ran away.

After being Tasered, Lockett was transported to Methodist Central Hospital where he later died at about 1:05 a.m. Sunday morning. An investigation continues into the death.

  1. 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.
