Houston, TX (6/8/2020) – A 5-year-old girl is dead and a 4-year-old girl is severely injured after a crash caused by their father.
The car accident happened at Fallbrook on the westbound feeder around 11:30 p.m. Friday. The girls were being driven by their father Luis Aguilar, 31, in a Chevrolet Trailblazer who police say was heavily intoxicated. Aguilar drove directly into a traffic light pole. Neither child was properly restrained in the back seat.
Aguilar has been charged with murder along with intoxicated assault involving a vehicle.
Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
Wrongful Death Lawyers, Sutliff & Stout
The dangers of drunk driving are well known. The impairment caused by alcohol consumption frequently leads to devastating vehicle collisions which often result in incapacitating injuries and even deaths. Because Aguilar inflicted injuries that lead to the death of his daughter and the fatal injuries to the second daughter, the right for the family to file a wrongful death claim and a personal injury claim is substantial. To do so, it’s important to consult legal counsel while you file your claim since insurance companies may trick you into settling with little to no money.
The best way to make sure you are treated fairly after your car accident is to hire a lawyer who knows the law and who is willing to fight to make sure that you are treated fairly.
