Colorado City – Man Charged With Manslaughter.
Manslaughter and DWI are the charges for a Colorado City man involved in an accident that happened on State Highway 350. The Mitchell County fatal accident occurred on April 12th. At around 6:30am the intoxicated driver crossed over the center divider line of the highway. A vehicle traveling in the opposite direction swerved to avoid an accident but ended up being hit on the side. The resulting injuries led to one death and minor injures to the intoxicated driver who was treated and later released from the hospital.
An early morning accident leads to a manslaughter and DWI charge.
Texas Department of Public Safety investigated the accident scene and charged one man with the accident. A manslaughter charge is a serious offense and if you are charged with such a crime, you need to speak with a criminal defense attorney. The Low Law Firm provides legal services to defend against DWI charges as well as manslaughter.
If you have had the unfortunate event to be injured in an accident caused by a drunk driver, a personal injury attorney can help you get the money you will need to care for yourself now and in the future. Insurance companies don’t take your well being into consideration when they pay you a settlement. Their goal is to pay you the least amount of money they can get away with paying you. Sometimes insurance companies may not want to pay you any money. This is why it is important to have an accident attorney fight for you and get you the maximum amount of settlement money you will need.
Don’t delay in talking with a personal injury attorney when you are involved in an accident that involves a manslaughter charge. Don’t speak with an insurance adjuster until you speak with an attorney first. You won’t know when they are asking you questions that will be used against you and help them determine the dollar figure your accident should be settled for. An injury attorney from The Low Law Firm is just a call away and can get started working on your case today.
