Stalled Motorist Initiates Fatal Traffic Accident at 7900 South Freeway

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 2-Jun-2011

Houston police are investigating a fatal traffic accident that occurred at 7900 South Freeway State Highway 288 about 8:50 p.m. on Tuesday, April 19th when a stranded motorist stalled and got out of his truck to see if he could fix his problem on the roadside.

The victim, whose name was not released, was driving a green Ford F-150 pickup truck that stalled out in the southbound lanes of the South Freeway exit ramp to the 610 South Loop – also known as South Interstate Highway 610. The victim got out of his truck, raised the hood and stood in front of the vehicle. The driver of a white Hyundai Santa Fe then struck the rear of the Ford.

The male victim, 40, was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital where he was pronounced dead. Two other persons inside the Ford truck suffered minor injuries. The victim’s identity is pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.

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.
