Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Pedestrian crashes in Texas take the lives of more than 700 people every single year. These accidents are often preventable, yet we continue to see innocent people lose their lives as a direct result of the negligence of others.
We see many people lose their lives in pedestrian accidents due to drivers engaging in actions, such as:
- Failing to yield the right of way
- Running red lights/passing stop signs
- Driving while impaired
- Being distracted while behind the wheel
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.
