Fatal Pedestrian Accidents In Texas
More than 600 pedestrians lose their lives annually in Texas car accidents. The human body is extremely vulnerable, especially to motor vehicles weighing several thousand pounds. Pedestrians who lose their lives in motor vehicle accidents often leave behind friends and family members who are overcome by grief.
Dealing with the loss of a loved one is difficult in any situation. Learning your loved one died as the result of another person’s negligent acts makes the situation even more unbearable. In some cases, surviving family members can contact a Texas wrongful death attorney to hold those at fault accountable.
