Pedestrian Killed in Altercation on Houston's Southwest Freeway

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 6-Dec-2010

A suspect has been arrested and charged in a fatal traffic accident in the 3100 block of Houston's Southwest Freeway that occurred late last month.

The incident occurred while the suspect was driving a blue Mercedes on the Southwest Freeway service road when she got into a verbal altercation with the victim, a pedestrian. The victim began running alongside the suspect's vehicle and was yelling at her when he was struck by the vehicle.

Nydia Veronica Alipaz, 33, reportedly interfered with the investigation and allegedly gave false information to officers on the scene. She was taken into custody and charged with interfering with a police investigation and filing a false police report in Harris County Criminal Court.

The male victim, 21, was pronounced dead at the scene. His identity is pending notification to family members by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.

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.
