Pedestrian Accidents In Texas
Those who work in the construction industry are at an increased risk of being involved in some type of workplace accident. Unfortunately, the risk is greatly increased for construction workers charged with maintaining and repairing roadways across our state. Between 2011 and 2015, 67 construction workers were killed by vehicles while on the job while hundreds more were injured.
Unfortunately, no matter how cautious workers are, they cannot control the manner in which drivers on the roads control their vehicles. When construction workers are injured in pedestrian accidents, it is crucial for them to contact a personal injury attorney in Texas as soon as possible.
