Pedestrian Accidents In Texas
Over the past decade, we have seen an overwhelming increase in the number of individuals who choose to travel by foot across our state. In an effort to protect these individuals, state lawmakers have implemented numerous measures. Despite their best efforts, over 600 pedestrians are killed in motor vehicle accidents each year while thousands more are left injured.
When victims are injured in pedestrian accidents, they often suffer from traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, and various other life-threatening injuries. Victims are forced to undergo extensive medical treatment, which is costly and inconvenient. Even worse, victims are left to suffer excruciating pain for weeks or even years after their accidents. In order to obtain some sense of justice, victims are able to contact a pedestrian accident attorney in Texas to file a legal claim against those at fault.
