Fatal Pedestrian Incidents In Texas

Every year, over 600 pedestrians lose their lives in motor vehicle accidents across Texas. Sadly, over 65% of these incidents involve drivers who flee the scene of the incident without providing aid to those injured.

When victims lose their lives in pedestrian accidents, they often leave behind devastated families and friends. To make matters even worse, families are often forced to deal with the costs of funerals and medical treatment. In many cases, surviving family members are able to contact a Texas wrongful death attorney to obtain restitution to help alleviate the costs incurred as the result of these fatal collisions.
