Enrique Mendoza died in a car accident in Hopkins County, Texas. Three other people were hurt. The unfortunate incident occurred on June 5, 2016. We would anticipate that this case may result in a wrongful death or personal injury lawsuit, especially once the investigation is complete.
Reports indicate that a truck was driving on Highway 19 and proceeded to veer off of the road. In attempts to get back on the road, the driver overturned his wheel and crashed into Mendoza’s vehicle in the opposite lanes. Three people in the truck were injured and taken to receive medical treatment. We hope they all have a speedy recovery. Mendoza died as a result of the extreme injuries he sustained in the accident. Our hearts and deepest sympathies go out to the friends and families of Mendoza.
What was the cause of the fatal 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 and personal injury lawsuit. The Weaver Law Firm understands that family and friends may have plenty of questions regarding wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits.
