Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in San Antonio, Texas
Pedestrian accidents in Texas claim the lives of more than 700 people each year. These accidents are often preventable. However, we see a significant number of people harmed as a result of driver negligence. Many people enter roadways while distracted, impaired, or speeding. These and other reckless actions place the lives of other people traveling nearby at risk.
If your loved one has lost their life in an accident, you will most likely face towering financial consequences. Covering medical expenses and funeral costs are tasks made even more challenging by the fact that your family may have lost a source of income they have grown to depend on.
