Head-on crash in Texoma takes woman's life, injures 3 others

A recent head-on collision near the Texas-Oklahoma line is a sad reminder of how quickly an auto accident can change lives forever. According to police, a Jeep crossed into the oncoming lane of traffic and collided head-on with an SUV. The crash sent three of the Jeep occupants to a hospital, and the woman driving the SUV died at the scene.

The 35-year-old Texoma man driving the Jeep was charged with manslaughter. The family of the deceased woman is undoubtedly reeling with grief.

For victims of serious auto accidents, there may be options for justice beyond any criminal charges brought against the driver who caused the crash. Filing a wrongful death lawsuit is a route many grieving families have to take.

For those who survive a crash but have suffered serious injuries, insurance companies may offer some financial help, but often the proposed settlement doesn’t cover the full range of damages. Physical therapy, loss of companionship, lost earning capacity, medical expenses, funeral expenses -- these are all matters that may have to be addressed in civil court in order for victims to receive adequate compensation. Calculating the full cost of damages often requires the help of an attorney with experience in liability claims.

In this particular crash, the investigation is ongoing. Even if the driver is not found guilty of manslaughter, the results of the criminal investigation may strengthen any civil claims that follow this devastating accident.
