$322,000 Accidental Death Settlement for Family Visiting Austin
Our accidental death law firm helped a family in the aftermath of a terrible highway crash. We were able to get $322,000 in a settlement for a grieving husband who lost his wife.
The tragedy happened when the couple was vacationing in Austin. They were driving in a car and an SUV slammed into the side of their vehicle, causing a violent car crash. The car struck at 70 miles per hour – a deadly force exceeding the speed limit of 60 miles per hour.
STAR Flight came to the scene and transported the husband to Brackenridge with severe injuries. His wife did not make it. EMS tried to revive her, but she died at the scene despite being properly restrained with a seatbelt. This was devastating to her husband. He had to not only recover from his own pain and suffering, but on top of that, had to deal with the loss of his beloved wife.
She is remembered by loved ones as a kind, caring woman who was unconditionally giving and gracious to friends and strangers alike.
Her husband trusted our team to take care of him during this time, and we did everything in our power to get him the medical help, emotional support, and compensation for his loss. No one should have to go through the pain caused by accidental death, especially when it could have been prevented.
Initially, the police blamed our client for his wife’s death. Unfortunately, police reports do not always reflect an accurate story. This could be because of improper investigation, lack of witnesses, or false accounts by the other party. Our team researched the crash and found definitive proof that the other driver was speeding and at fault. The other party was not driving safely, and this negligence caused the untimely death of a loved one.
Our firm handles cases like this because we are very good at providing personal attention and dedication to each client. We take the time to understand the situation, talk with the family, and put personal detail into the Demand so that the insurance lawyers cannot simply make it a numbers game.
