According to the Texas crash report, a December 10th crash on SH 121 and County Road 528 left two people with serious injuries. The crash happened around 12:24 p.m. when a Ford transit van driven by 42-year-old Serghei Ganciuc of Pittsburg, PA was traveling east on County Road 528. While attempting to cross SH 121 to get to the other side of CR 528, a Dodge Ram 1500 driven by 50-year-old Robert Martinez struck the side of the van. Mr. Ganciuc was transported to Medical Center McKinney and Robert Martinez was transported to Bonham Medical with serious injuries. The passengers in Mr. Martinez’s vehicle did not report injuries at the time of the crash. The report indicates that Mr. Ganciuc Failed-to-Yield Right-of-Way to Mr. Martinez while crossing SH 121.
Anytime a failure to yield crash occurs, it is important to make sure a thorough investigation is conducted and evidence is preserved. Although insurance companies do place some weight on a crash report when determining fault in an accident, either party could dispute the accuracy of the determination of fault. If no evidence at the scene or witnesses place blame on either party, problems could occur. An experienced attorney can collect evidence and sometimes hire an accident reconstructionist to prove who is liable for the wreck. The problem with not involving an attorney quickly is that evidence could disappear which can make proving your case difficult. Reaching out to an attorney early on can help strengthen your case and get it headed in the right direction.
