Clayton Martin died in a truck accident in San Antonio, Texas. An 18-wheeler was the other vehicle involved in the accident. The unfortunate incident occurred on March 28, 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 driver was on Interstate 10 and slowed down allegedly because of construction. Reports indicate that Martin, who was driving behind the truck, did not slow down and collided with the 18-wheeler causing the fatal accident. Martin died as a result of the extreme injuries he sustained. Our hearts and deepest sympathies go out to Martin’s friends and family.
Why was Martin not able to slow down? Did the truck stop suddenly? 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.
