Fatal Construction Accident on Houston's South Highway

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 19-Jun-2011

Houston police are investigating a fatal construction accident that occurred at the South Highway, also known as State Highway 288 on April 22nd.

The victim, Manuel A. Seja, 47, of Houston, was working in front of a white International Cement truck, which was parked at a construction site at State Highway 288 and MacGregor. The truck, parked underneath the freeway alongside Brays Bayou, somehow jumped out of gear and it jerked forward and fatally struck him. Seja was pronounced dead at the scene.

In addition, two other workers alongside Seja were also injured and transported to Ben Taub General Hospital. Both men suffered severe, but non life-threatening injuries. Alcohol or drugs do not appear to be factors in this incident. The HPD Vehicular Crimes Division and the Truck Enforcement Unit are both investigating the accident.

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.
