Eddy County Sheriff’s Office reported a fatal one-vehicle accident that happened on Friday, February 12. One person was killed in the Tumbleweed Road solo car crash. According to the officials, the officers responded to the scene on 26th Street sometime before 7 a.m.
The police said they discovered a twenty-four-year-old John Alexander Vasquez in the vehicle, who was later pronounced dead. According to the officials, the investigation discovered that the victim’s seat belt wasn’t properly used. The accident was probably caused by weather conditions and speed. The police don’t believe that alcohol was a factor in the Tumbleweed Road solo car crash.
Snow, ice and rain can easily contribute to accidents. It takes a slippery road, or heavy snow or rain for the driver to lose control over the vehicle and not be able to stop it.
Losing a loved one in an accident is devastating. When there aren’t other involved parties, and things are clear, the family of the victim can’t do much about filing for a compensation claim.
However, hiring an attorney may help you in ways you didn’t even think of. For instance, if your loved one was driving a faulty car, or was driving on a road that wasn’t cleaned from snow, you can file for a compensation claim against that agency, auto seller or mechanic.
It takes investigation to show whether or not the car was faulty. If the road wasn’t cleaned, your attorney can help you seek surveillance cameras to check that.
These are complex processes that require time and a skilled and knowledgeable attorney.
