Joshua Otto died in a car accident in Austin, Texas. Otto was in high school at Hays County. The incident occurred on January 11, 2016. We would anticipate that this case may result in a wrongful death lawsuit, especially once the investigation is complete.
John Ramirez was driving a vehicle in a field off of Southpark Meadows retail center. According to reports, the vehicle turned over and a fire started on the car. Reports indicate that Ramirez and two passengers got out of the car. The author believes that Otto was not able to get out of the car and died as a result of his injuries. Our hearts and prayers go out to Otto’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.
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.
