Pedestrian Accident FM 1264 Lubbock County, TX

With pedestrian accidents, it's for folks to just assume someone was where they shouldn't have been, and that's that. But things aren't always so simple. For one, there can be a controversy if evidence shows the driver should have been able to see and avoid the victim. Regardless of who had the right-of-way, a driver failing to avoid an avoidable accident raises some red flags. Alternatively, there could also be extenuating circumstances. For example, I had a case not long ago where it turned out a man had been illegally over-served by an alcohol provider, and they were responsible for getting him dangerously intoxicated, which resulted in his death. Could it be something like that happened here? That's certainly not for me to say, but it remains to be seen if the proper steps were taken to really get answers here.
