When an individual is killed as the result of another person’s error or negligence, the family of the victim may have a right to attempt to hold the party responsible for damages. The Indiana Wrongful Death Attorneys with Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin explain the father of a young man who was shot and killed outside of a bar two years ago has filed such a claim.

According to an article from The Journal Gazette, the incident occurred on Halloween night in 2011 at Mookie’s Bar & Grill in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Police were called to the Clinton Street location that night following a noise complaint, but before police could arrive, shots rang into the air. A 23-year-old man was struck by one of the bullets that was fired and died at a local hospital the following morning.

Now, two years later, the victim’s father has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the owners of the bar where his son died and others associated with the incident. The suit claims the bar and its management failed to supply adequate security on the night the incident occurred. It goes on to allege this negligence was directly responsible for the young man’s death.

The law firm’s team of Indiana Personal Injury Lawyers recognizes how difficult the loss of a loved one can be. That’s why the firm is hopeful a decision in the case will bring closure to the family of the victim.

A 43-year-old Valparaiso, Indiana, woman was killed after being involved in a collision with a tractor-trailer on Tuesday. According to The Post-Tribune, the accident happened at the intersection of U.S. 30 and CR 600 West in Porter County.

Reports from troopers with the Indiana State Police say that the 52-year-old driver of a 2009 Freightliner truck was heading west on U.S. 30 when he began to cough uncontrollably. He says that he realized the light had turned red as he approached the intersection, but that he was unable to stop the truck due to his coughing fit. The semi-truck screeched into the intersection and collided with a maroon SUV that was going south on 600W. The impact sent the vehicles across the median before coming to rest in the oncoming lanes of traffic.

While the driver of the truck and a passenger who was in the cab escaped the accident unscathed, the driver of the van died at the scene of the accident.

It is unclear whether the driver of the truck will face any charges in connection with the crash until troopers complete a full investigation into the accident.

The Indiana Truck Accident Lawyers with Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin would like to send their thoughts and condolences to the friends and family of the woman who tragically died in this accident. The firm hopes that they can find swift closure to their untimely loss.
