Russell Smith was injured in an 18-wheeler accident in Austin, Texas. The unfortunate incident occurred on April 8, 2016. The crash involved four 18-wheelers and a truck. We would anticipate that this case may result in a personal injury lawsuit, especially once the investigation is complete.
According to reports, an 18-wheeler was driving on Interstate 35 and crashed into the back of a truck. Allegedly that initial collision caused a domino-effect of accidents with three other 18-wheelers. Smith was hurt in the crash and his condition is reportedly stable. Our hearts and prayers go out to Smith and we hope he makes a speedy recovery.
What was the cause of the accident? Was anyone distracted or under the influence? Are there any other factors missing from this report?
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 personal injury lawsuit. The Weaver Law Firm understands that family and friends may have plenty of questions regarding personal injury lawsuits.
