Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 29-Jul-2010

A female child injured in a traffic accident in the 3500 block of War Memorial in Houston, TX on March 22nd has died from her injuries. Destiny Garcia, 8, of Houston was pronounced dead at Memorial Hermann Hospital on Tuesday, March 23rd.

The accident occurred when a white Mitsubishi Montero, which was traveling south on War Memorial, when Destiny abruptly turned from her mother and ran into the street. She was struck by the vehicle.

Witnesses who reportedly saw the car accident ran to aid the child. The driver of the Montero stopped, walked back to where the child was laying and asked what had happened. When witnesses stated a sport utility vehicle hit the child, the driver denied involvement and fled the scene. Police have been searching for the Misubishi and its driver and the investigation is continuing.

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.
