Texas Trucking Company Compensates Family of Woman Killed in Houston Crash

The Ammons Law Firm successfully negotiated the settlement of a wrongful death lawsuit brought by the husband and 11-year-old son of a Texas woman killed in an 18-wheeler collision.

In the lawsuit, Rob Ammons claimed the trucking company’s driver was negligent and reckless when he drove a tractor-trailer through a red light and slammed into a sedan in which the Texas woman was a passenger.  She suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene.  She was only 29.  Witnesses to the crash confirmed that the light had been red for several seconds before the rig ran through it.  The investigating police officer determined the only cause of the crash was the 18-wheeler’s driver disregarding the red light.

The trucker was on the job at the time of the crash, making the company for which he worked legally responsible for his negligence.  The surviving husband and son of the young woman who was killed sought to be compensated for their pecuniary loss, loss of companionship and society, loss of inheritance, and mental anguish resulting from the death of their wife and mother.
