Pedestrian Accidents in San Antonio
Statistics show that between the years of 2013 and 2015, about 1,800 pedestrian accidents happened in San Antonio. One of the leading causes of these accidents is poorly lit streets, which makes it harder for drivers to see pedestrians, especially if they are wearing dark clothing. Despite these circumstances, drivers are still expected to be aware and alert of their surroundings at all times. For those who have sustained injuries after being hit by a vehicle, the next step is to seek help from a Texas personal injury attorney to help file a personal injury lawsuit.
