Texas Is an At-Fault State
In Texas, drivers involved in car accidents always include someone who is at-fault, meaning that there is an individual who caused the accident to occur. In the case above, Lindsey Hail lost control of her vehicle, and resulted in two individuals injured. Because of this, the insurance company in contact with Lindsey Hail could face claims of personal injury from Theresa Hail and Jeffrey Harry. However, insurance companies are only looking out for their best interests.
