Houston Car Crash Victim Dies Weeks after Accident

Posted By Houston Injury Attorney || 25-Jun-2010

A female motorist injured in a auto accident in the 5800 block of the South Loop East (Interstate Highway 610) about 4:30 p.m. on Feb. 15 has died from her injuries.

The female driver sought medical treatment the day after the February 16th  accident for injuries she had sustained in the accident. She was pronounced dead at Memorial Hermann Hospital on Friday, Feb. 26th Her identity is pending verification by the Harris County Medical Examiner's Office.

The victim was reportedly traveling eastbound on the South Loop East, in a pickup truck, when she was struck from behind by a Dodge Ram truck. Officers spoke to both the victim and the other driver, and neither claimed injuries or requested medical assistance. Both drivers exchanged information.

The following day, the victim complained of a headache and was transported to Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital, and then taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital, where she died. The investigation is continuing.

In an incident where either or both drivers are at fault and there is one victim, the obligation is on the victim's family to find fault with one primary driver, or both together for compensation. In this case, expert counsel is critical.

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.
