Austin Records Final Auto Fatality of 2010

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 25-Jan-2011

Austin's last auto fatality occurred ten days before the end of the year, reports say, making 2010 a year with less than average roadway deaths - good news for the state's capitol.

Still, it was unfortunate for the 38-year-old white female who was walking across the southbound lanes of IH 35 South, the year's last traffic-accident victim.

As she walked across the freeway for unspecified reason, a grey Toyota traveling southbound on IH 35 struck her. She was then struck by numerous other vehicles as she lay on the freeway. She was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Although neither speed nor alcohol appear to be factors in this crash, and no charges are anticipated, the case remains under investigation. The identity of the female is being withheld.

This was the 49th fatality of 2010, and by this time last year (2009) there were 61 fatalities in Austin.

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.
