Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Each year, more than 700 pedestrians are fatally injured in traffic-related incidents across the state of Texas. These victims are more vulnerable to the impact of motor vehicles during collisions. As a result, they tend to suffer more catastrophic and fatal injuries at a higher rate. 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.
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.
