Corey West died in a pedestrian accident in Denton, Texas. The incident occurred on January 17, 2016. It took place on Loop 288. We would anticipate that this case may result in a wrongful death lawsuit.
According to reports, West was crossing McKinney Avenue with a friend of his. As he crossed, allegedly a vehicle hit him. His friend did not get hurt in the accident reportedly. West was taken to receive emergency medical treatment at a hospital. West died as a result of his critical injuries. Our hearts and deepest sympathies go out to West’s friends and family.
It is always sad to hear about car collisions, and this accident is equally as sad. The roads are always a place where unpredictable moments take place. That is why driving safely is so important.
Did the driver see West crossing? Why didn’t the driver stop? What other factors are missing from this report?
Although the police are doing their own investigating, they cannot always be fully relied upon. 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.
