When a loved one dies in an accident, the pain of loss is compounded by financial and legal struggles, including medical bills, loss of income, costs to repair or replace a vehicle, and the effort and paperwork of wrangling with an insurance company for assistance. A Houston-area mother is facing this situation after she was injured and her son killed by a drunk driver in Atascocita.
23-year-old Craig Welch ran a red light and crashed his Chevrolet Trailblazer into a Corvette, killing the driver, Omar Jaramillo, and injuring his passenger, Irene Jaramillo. Ms. Jaramillo was taken to the hospital; her son was pronounced dead on the scene. Welch was arrested at the scene for Driving under the Influence, and charged with intoxication manslaughter. He remains in jail on a $30,000 bail as the investigation is ongoing.
In the aftermath of an accident where wrongful death occurs, families are in shock, grieving and confused. An ongoing investigation delays closure and the insurance company lawyers are primarily interested in the interests of the insurance company, not the family.
