Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in 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.
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. 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.
