Michael Alexander Hill died in a pedestrian accident in Houston, Texas. Matthew Alan Putterman is allegedly the driver involved. The incident occurred on January 8, 2016. We would anticipate that this case may result in a wrongful death lawsuit.
Putterman was walking across the street and was allegedly hit by the vehicle that Putterman was driving. According to reports, Putterman kept going after he hit Hill. Allegedly, he failed to stop and render aid. Hill died as a result of the extreme injuries he sustained in the accident. Our hearts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Hill.
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 driver allegedly not stop? Was there anything that could have been done to prevent this accident? 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.
