Personal injury claim may be an option after fatal accident

A recent tragic accident in Texas underlines the dangers of driving while under the influence of alcohol. An underage driver apparently consumed a large amount of alcohol, got behind the wheel and caused a crash that claimed the life of a young mother. She leaves behind a young son, and it is possible that family members could seek personal injury compensation on his behalf. 

Before the accident, the driver is said to have gone to a Texas bar where he was served alcohol, despite being 19 years old. He reportedly drank a dozen drinks, including tequila shots. After six hours at the bar, he left, causing the fatal collision on his way home. Later, law enforcement arrested five people who worked at the bar for never asking for the driver's identification to verify his age while he was at the bar. The bar is also in trouble because it did not have a liquor license and was only supposed to serve beer and wine.

At the time of the crash, the mother and her son were on the way home from visiting family and were almost there. Family members left behind will have to care for the young child, though they appear to have grounds to seek compensation to cover his financial needs and other expenses. The bar, the driver and other parties may face financial accountability for what happened.

If a victim or grieving Texas family has grounds to pursue financial compensation through a personal injury claim, they may find it helpful to first seek help before they move forward. A complete evaluation of the case can reveal what specific options may be available. With the right guidance, it is possible to hold responsible parties fully accountable for the monetary damages that inevitably accompany these kinds of tragedies.
