A Texas wrongful death lawsuit has been filed by the parents of a six-year-old Gilmer, Texas, boy who was killed in a car accident in January. The suit has been filed in Upshur County’s 115th District Court.
The victim was Nathan Connor Croley, and the Texas wrongful death lawsuit is being filed by his parents, Jerry and Melody Croley. Defendants named in the wrongful death lawsuit are Talley Rents (RentFirst) and the company’s employee Judson William Maurer of Longview, Texas.
On January 29th, Jerry Croley was traveling south on U.S. 271 with his son and another child. Maurer was also driving south on the highway behind Croley. Maurer was traveling in a Talley Rents GMC truck. At some point, Maurer’s truck struck Croley’s vehicle. All three individuals in Croley’s car were injured. Nathan Croley later died from his injuries.
In their wrongful death lawsuit, the Croleys allege that Maurer is responsible for the accident because he failed to keep a proper lookout, failed to maintain a clear distance between his truck and Croley’s vehicle, failed to timely apply his brakes, failed to control the speed of his truck and generally did not act in a reasonable manner when operating his vehicle.
An unspecified amount of money is being sought by the Croleys for mental anguish and medical expenses, among other damages.
