Fatal Pedestrian Accidents In Texas
Traveling by foot is a relatively safe form of transportation. Unfortunately, thousands of individuals across the state are injured in pedestrian accidents by being struck by motor vehicles in the roadway. Unfortunately, more than 3,700 people die as a result of injuries sustained.
When pedestrians are killed in motor vehicle accidents, surviving relatives are left to deal with the negative consequences of the incident. In many cases, surviving relatives are left responsible for the costs of medical treatments and funeral arrangements. When victims lose their lives due to negligent drivers, surviving relatives can contact a Texas wrongful death attorney to seek justice.
