John Hilliard died in a pedestrian accident in San Antonio, Texas. He was a retired colonel in the Air Force. The unfortunate incident occurred on May 1, 2016. We would anticipate that this case may result in a wrongful death lawsuit, especially once the investigation is complete.
According to reports, Hilliard was utilizing the crosswalk to get across Loop 410 close to Valley Hi Drive when he was struck by a vehicle. Hilliard died as a result of the extreme injuries he sustained. Our hearts and deepest sympathies go out to the friends and families of Hilliard.
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 wrongful death lawsuit. The Weaver Law Firm understands that family and friends may have plenty of questions regarding wrongful death lawsuits.
