AUSTIN, TEXAS (PRWEB) December 10, 2012
Justin McMinn, an attorney with the McMinn Law Firm, has filed a lawsuit in the wrongful death of Roland Pearce, a 62-year-old man whose car was struck head-on by an out-of-control vehicle.
The Austin injury lawyer filed the lawsuit on behalf of Pearce’s sister in order to help pay for the medical bills incurred while undergoing multiple operations in efforts to save his life over the 50 days between the car accident and Pearce’s death.
According to the complaint, case number D-134,549 in Ector County District Court, the defendant was driving a company pickup truck when he lost control of his vehicle, which then swerved across several lanes of traffic and crashed head-on with a vehicle driven by Pearce.
The petition alleges that the defendant operated his vehicle in an unsafe and improper manner by failing to keep a proper lookout and maintain proper control of his vehicle, driving too fast for the existing conditions and failing to reduce his speed and make timely application of his brakes.
“This case is a tragedy,” McMinn said. “My client’s brother fought for his life for 50 days before his injuries proved to be too much. The operations that doctors hoped would save his life have left my client with thousands of dollars in medical bills, and she’s having to cope with losing an important person in her life. This pain could have been prevented.”
