Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Pedestrian accidents often have life-changing consequences for families. Unfortunately, these unpredictable accidents take the lives of more than 700 people each year. We see far too many innocent parties lose their lives in accidents due to drivers who are distracted, impaired, or engaging in otherwise reckless actions while operating their vehicles. Losing a loved one in an accident can have a devastating impact on surviving family members.
After enduring the loss of a loved one, most families struggle to move forward. Overcoming the mental and emotional pain and suffering seem nearly impossible. Dealing with the financial burdens resulting from the accident can seem almost insulting.
