Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Studies show that almost 4,000 pedestrians suffered serious injuries after being involved in pedestrian accidents in 2015. Unfortunately, most of the time these accidents could be avoided if drivers would fully focus on their surroundings. When drivers are busy using their cell phones, eating, grooming, conversing with passengers, falling asleep at the wheel, and more, they put pedestrians at serious risk of being injured or killed. For those who have sustained injuries after being involved in pedestrian accidents, it’s important to seek help from a Texas personal injury attorney.
