Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Pedestrian accidents take the lives of more than 700 people every year. Thousands more are left with serious injuries that demand emergency medical care. Victims of pedestrian accidents often suffer spinal cord injuries, internal organ damage, and severely broken bones that require extensive medical care. These and other injuries often require immediate medical attention. In some cases, victims have to go through long-term care. Not only are injuries incredibly painful and debilitating, but they are often costly to treat.
When people fail to maintain control of their vehicles, it can have life-changing consequences for other people traveling nearby. Dealing with painful injuries is not something that most people are prepared to do. Dealing with the financial consequences that come with treating injuries can be downright devastating.
When victims are harmed in accidents because of negligent drivers, they may have legal options available to recover. Should you be harmed in an accident, you must seek the assistance of a knowledgeable pedestrian accident lawyer in San Antonio as soon as possible.
