One man died after a hit-and-run pedestrian fatal accident in New Braunfels, Texas. This deadly accident occurred on November 15, 2015. We would anticipate that this case may result in a wrongful death lawsuit, especially once the driver that left is found.
The driver of a truck was turning on West San Antonio Street. As he turned, he hit a man that was crossing the street. The driver did not stop to help and still has not been found. The pedestrian died because of the extent of the injuries he sustained. Our hearts and deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends.
It is truly sad to hear about another accident. The roads are place where unpredictable moments happen. That is why it is important to drive safely.
Was the driver distracted or under the influence? Why did the driver of the truck not stop? What other factors are missing from this report?
There are some questions that may still need answers and some actions that may need explanations. Although the police are investigating, 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 and hit-and-run accidents.
