Fatal Traffic Accident On Houston’s Eastex Freeway

Posted By Houston Car Accident Attorney || 11-Jun-2010

Houston police are continuing to investigate a fatal traffic accident in the 700 block of the Eastex Freeway, or what's known as US Highway 59 North, that occurred earlier this year, police say.

The accident, which happened about 2:20 p.m. on Friday, January 1, occurred when a gold Buick LeSabre and a white Honda Civic came together in the southbound emergency lane of the Eastex Freeway.

The LeSabre reportedly stopped on the service road when it ran out of gas. The Civic, also traveling southbound in the emergency lane, struck the Buick from behind. The driver and passenger of the Buick were transported to Ben Taub General Hospital, where the passenger, Ms. Joshua, 42, of Houston, was pronounced dead at Ben Taub General Hospital.

The driver of the Honda was uninjured, and police reports say he passed all field sobriety tests at the scene. HPD Vehicular Crimes Division Sergeant E. Spencer and Officer C. Lofland was the reporting officer. Although no charges have been filed at this time, the investigation continues.

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.
