Fatal accident results in teen’s death on school field trip

The wrongful death of a loved one can leave you unsure of what steps to take next. In some cases, you might want to consider seeking compensation, like in cases where a fatal accident was caused by someone else. You might have heard about this case, which involved a teen from Montgomery, Alabama, who ended up dead after a pickup truck hit him while he was on a school field trip. His classmate was also struck, according to the reports, but he is expected to survive.

The report from Feb. 5 states that two students were hit by a truck during their school field trip. They both attended Lee High school and were participating in a trip for the Lee Information Technology Academy. The students were struck along the Cahaba Valley Road, also known as Highway 119, on Feb. 4, after they had finished the major parts of their field trip. They were in the area to visit the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, according to the news, and they were also visiting the University of Alabama in Huntsville’s campus.

Because of the length of the trip, the students and chaperones stopped to have dinner in Pelham, according to the reports. It hasn’t been reported why the students were in the roadway at around 6:00 p.m., since the accident’s still being investigated by police, and police haven’t reported any negligence in relation to the accident. At the time of the accident, the 16-year-old student was killed, but the second student was not. The 16-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the news.

According to the authorities, the second student is expected to survive, but his name and condition has not been released. The Pelham Police Department took on the investigation, according to the public information manager from the Montgomery Public Schools. She reported that she wasn’t sure when the bus was scheduled to return to the school, but she pointed out that counselors would be available to speak to students.

"They took a case that others would have stayed clear of.."
I have the utmost respect for Rip Andrews and the lawyers at MRB Law. They took a case that others would have stayed clear of because the issue of state immunity was involved. Through determination and unwavering commitment they were able to a find resolution to an extremely difficult matter.

"They...brought justice to my family through a multi-million dollar verdict ."
These lawyers took a complicated issue, revealed the truth in a way 12 jurors unfamiliar with the topic could understand, and brought justice to my family through a multi-million dollar verdict. They were able to relate my “invisible” medical condition to the jury better than I can to my own friends. And because of that, the jury hugged me and cried with me when it was all over. That meant more to me than any amount of money.
