An At-Fault Driver May Have Had Seizure During Accident

Brooks Schuelke, Esq.
Schuelke Law PLLC

Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) January 31, 2019 – An at-fault Texas driver on Houston’s Grand Parkway told police he does not recall what happened when he crashed, as he has a history of seizures. The man was wearing an ankle-monitoring bracelet when he crashed, and he is not to be charged with a crime until police have more information on his medical history. Police indicated that they will investigate the driver's criminal, medical, phone and car black box records to make sense of the fatal accident.

The driver, had just left his probation office when his truck hit the median, crossed to the other side and crashed into several other cars. Two were killed in this accident and four others were taken to hospital in varying degrees of medical distress, ranging from serious to critical condition. There were at least six vehicles scattered across the roadway in the accident’s aftermath.

In major accidents such as this one, police often work backwards to find out what happened and to construct a timeline of events. They typically start with the crash itself and determine what directions drivers were coming from and what people were doing before impact. From there they proceed to determine who is at-fault. Given the facts in this case, it appears that it is headed to a grand jury. The at-fault driver apparently has criminal charges pending for aggravated robbery and kidnapping from 2017.

“It is likely going to be difficult to find a good solution for anyone involved,” said Austin auto accident attorney, Brooks Schuelke, not involved in this case. “That said, there might be a partial resolution provided the at-fault driver has insurance of some kind. There were several serious injuries and two deaths, and it is likely those victims and survivors may consider filing a lawsuit to recover damages.”

Theoretically, every Texas driver is covered by liability insurance to protect other drivers. However, there are those that drive without insurance or with minimum coverage. That is not enough to cover the other driver's damages in case of an accident. An underinsured driver has liability insurance, but not enough to pay for damages to the other driver involved in the accident.

“This is where victims of car crashes need to speak to an experienced personal injury attorney,” Schuelke said. “An experienced personal injury attorney will be able to analyze the situation and figure out the best way for you to obtain the compensation you deserve, either through settlement or taking a case to court.” This is a complex area of law in Texas and it is best to discuss any possible compensation with an attorney who is intimately familiar with uninsured coverage and underinsured coverage.
