Austin Auto-Pedestrian Crash Kills One

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 24-Mar-2011

Austin Police Officers responded to an auto-pedestrian crash in the 6800 block of South Pleasant Valley Road late last month, after a 2007 white Ford F350 tow truck that was driving

southbound in the outside lane of the 6800 block of South Pleasant Valley Road struck two pedestrians.

Although there was a sidewalk, the two pedestrians were walking southbound also in the outside lane of the 6800. The Ford struck both pedestrians from behind. Both pedestrians were injured and transported to University Medical Center at Brackenridge. One of the two, Pedro Rocha Briones, 57, died from his injuries at 5:55 a.m. The other pedestrian was released from the hospital with minor injuries. The investigation continues and anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call APD Vehicular Homicide Unit Detectives at (512) 974-8164.

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.
