Carol Voutsainas is dead after a wrong way accident in Austin involving four cars in Austin. This fatal car accident occurred on October 23, 2015. We would anticipate that this case may result in a wrongful death lawsuit, especially if evidence proves that the other driver was at fault.
A woman was driving in her car in the east direction on Highway 290. A tow truck that was driving in the west direction hydroplaned and crashed head-on into Voutsainas automobile. Two people denied treatment and two other people were taken to the hospital. Voutsainas died as a result of the critical injuries she had. Our hearts and prayers go out to the family and friends of all victims.
It is truly saddening to hear about this fatal accident. The roadways are a place where the unpredictable happens, which is why safety is important. The weather should dictate the manner in which people should drive, especially when the road is slippery.
Was speeding a factor in the tow truck hydroplaning? Could this accident have been prevented if precautions were taken by the truck driver?
Although the police have their report, there are some questions that may still need answers and some actions that may need explanations. Personal injury lawyers do not always rely on the police reports. They often hire private investigators to find the answers to additional questions. Investigators often obtain helpful information that is not included in the police report, information that family members sometimes want to know.
The facts of this case may support a wrongful death lawsuit. The Weaver Law Firm understands that family and friends may have plenty of questions regarding wrongful death lawsuits.
