Markeith Lamon Stokes died in a 18-wheeler accident in Troy, Texas. The accident occurred on I-35. The fatal incident occurred on February 23, 2016. We would anticipate that this case may result in a wrongful death lawsuit, especially once the investigation is complete.
According to reports, an 18-wheeler was driving on Interstate 35 and hydroplaned. After the 18-wheeler hydroplaned, reports indicate that the truck crashed into Stokes’ truck. The driver of the 18-wheeler was taken to receive emergency medical care. Stokes died as a result of the extreme injuries he sustained in the accident. Our hearts and deepest sympathies go out to Stokes family and friends.
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.
Why did the 18-wheeler allegedly crash with Stokes’ vehicle? Was the driver distracted? Are there any other factors 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.
