Wal-Mart Crash Victim Laid to Rest

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 27-Jun-2011

The 16-year-old girl killed in a crash in a Wal-Mart parking lot was laid to rest earlier this month, reports say.

The young girl, Ashley Moore, died when the SUV she was riding in smashed into the fire exit doors and a portion of the brick wall on the front of the Wal-Mart store in Dunn, (???). The driver of the car, boyfriend Dillon Tart, survived the crash.

Reports say an eyewitness heard Moore screaming before the SUV accelerated through the parking lot, hit two parked cars, then flipped over after striking the curbing.

Paramedics, who were eating at restaurant across the parking lot, witnessed the crash and were on the scene to render aid within seconds. Both were transported to the hospital, where Moore died. Tart was released a few days later.

Police are reportedly reviewing video from Wal-Mart's parking lot cameras and getting help from the Highway Patrol's accident reconstruction team. As of this report, no charges had been filed, and reports say police are still trying to determine whether the crash was a crime or an accident.

Moore's friends and fellow students built a makeshift memorial in front of the Wal-Mart.

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.
