Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
In 2017, statistics show that about 567 pedestrians were killed on Texas highways, and the year prior to that about 676 were killed. Unfortunately, the leading cause of most pedestrian accidents is drivers not paying attention to their surroundings. Most times drivers are either on their cell phones or under the influence. For those who have loved ones that were injured or killed in pedestrian accidents, it’s important to seek out a Texas wrongful death attorney to help file a wrongful death lawsuit.
