Fatal Pedestrian Accidents
Over 600 individuals died in pedestrian accidents across Texas in 2017. Victims in pedestrian accidents often sustain serious and life-threatening injuries because they are without adequate protection against vehicles weighing several thousand pounds. The possibility of fatal injuries is increased drastically in situations where a person is struck by a larger vehicle, like a bus.
Pedestrian fatalities often leave families suffering. Thankfully, surviving family members can contact a Texas wrongful death lawyer to file a legal claim against the at-fault driver. Although these lawsuits cannot bring back the individual who lost their life, they can provide grieving families with the compensation necessary to take care of medical and funeral expenses.
