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, and pending the results of the investigation, the surviving family of the driver that died may have a right to file a wrongful death claim against the driver that fled the scene.
