Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Texas

Pedestrian accidents in the state of Texas claim the lives of more than 700 victims each year. These collisions are often preventable. However, we see many people hurt in crashes due to the negligence of other drivers. Many people enter roadways while distracted, impaired by drugs or alcohol, or speeding. These and other negligent actions place the lives of other people traveling nearby at risk.

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.
