It isn’t unusual to build an urge to drive after obtaining a license. Cruising up and down Business 83 or taking a little road trip to South Padre Island immediately comes to mind. Accidents can happen when we least expect them and they can be overly burdening if another driver is at fault. This was the unfortunate case with two women involved in an accident in 2013 that have now received compensation for what they experienced.
An Avoidable Accident
The two Port Arthur women were heading north on Magnolia Street when a Port Neches motorist struck them. According to the lawsuit filed by the victims, the other driver turned left without yielding the right of way. The two victims filed a lawsuit seeking damages for injuries caused by the defendant in 2014.
Almost two years after the lawsuit was filed against the negligent driver, a court ruled in favor of the two plaintiffs. They were awarded nearly $40,000 dollars in a jury trial for damages received from the accident.
