New evidence in the Venus Williams wrongful death lawsuit

The ongoing story of the wrongful death lawsuit lodged against tennis star Venus Williams continues to garner headlines. Some people are troubled by how she is still playing in a tennis tournament while the lawsuit is pending. Others believe that she is simply doing her job as a tennis pro and that she has the right to continue to work since she has not been charged with a crime.

Recent revelations by the Palm Beach Gardens Police Department indicate that she may not be charged with a crime. In the week leading up to Wimbledon (the tournament where Williams is currently playing) authorities believed that she was at fault for the accident because they initially concluded that she entered the intersection illegally.

However, surveillance video that was recently released tells a slightly different story. It shows that Williams initially entered the intersection legally, stopping short to avoid a car that had likely run a red light. After the car passed, Williams continued through the intersection, only to be hit by a carrying the man who eventually passed away from his injuries.

Williams was unhurt.

It remains to be seen what will happen with the wrongful death lawsuit given this new information, but one thing is clear; accident investigations can unearth critical evidence to support or defeat a personal injury claim.

If you have questions about your legal rights after a car accident, an experienced personal injury attorney can advise you.
