According to the Dallas Police Department, Wilske’s car was stopped at a stop sign at about 11 p.m. near Centerville Road and Joaquin Drive. When she tried to turn left, a truck driven by Antonio Ortiz allegedly ran a stop sign, colliding with Wilske’s vehicle.

CRASH INVESTIGATION NEEDED

Traffic laws clearly state that drivers must stop at all stoplights. Unfortunately, motorists don’t always abide by these laws, resulting in crashes such as the one that took Ms. Wilske’s life.

According to the Federal Highway Administration, approximately 40 percent of car collisions take place at road intersections and the cause is usually related to running a stop sign or a stoplight. Some of the reasons why drivers blow through stoplights are impatience, reckless driving, and distracted driving.

Candice Bond, an experienced auto accident attorney, said in cases such as this an independent probe should also be conducted by a seasoned lawyer to protect evidence and the rights of a victim’s grieving family.

“In addition to the diligent work of law enforcement, an attorney can re-interview important witnesses, analyze any surveillance video from the scene of the crash and obtain phone and texting records of the liability party,” said Bond, Managing Partner of Bond Legal. “Serving as an advocate, an attorney can help compassionately guide a family during this difficult time, protecting their rights, while ensuring that a driver who does not obey traffic laws is held accountable.”

WRONGFUL DEATH CLAIM

Pending the investigation, the family members of Milena Wilske may be entitled to a wrongful death claim. Family members of wrongful death victims may seek damages for loss of companionship, pain, suffering, and emotional distress following a tragic or catastrophic accident such as this tragic incident.

“The stress and sorrow can be extremely overwhelming after losing a loved one in an accident,” said Stefano Formica, Of Counsel with Bond Legal. “We understand just what families are forced to go through, and having their rights protected is vital. A wrongful death lawyer will stay updated on the official investigation and help ensure that their legal rights and best interests are protected.”
