Fatal Houston Traffic Accident Occurs on Scott St.

Posted By Houston Car Accident Attorney || 14-Jun-2010

Investigation of a fatal hit-and-run traffic accident in the 6600 block of Scott Street continues by Houston police.

The accident, which occurred at about 11:05 p.m. on Thursday, New Years' Eve, involved a male pedestrian and a gray Dodge Durango, police reports say.

The Durango was reportedly traveling southbound on Scott Street when it struck a pedestrian while the man crossed the street. The pedestrian was sent flying and the Dodge failed to stop to render aid or even check the victim for injuries. The pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene.

The identity of the male pedestrian, 19, is pending verification by the Harris County Medical Examiner's Office, HPD Vehicular Crimes Division Sergeant I. Izaguirre and Officer T. Turner reported. Houston Police ask anyone with information in the pedestrian accident to contact the HPD Hit and Run Detail at 713-247-4065.

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.
