Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
In 2015, almost 600 people lost their lives in pedestrian accidents in Texas according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Because pedestrians are not protected from the impact and weight of fast-traveling vehicles, they’re highly susceptible to sustaining major injuries. Sometimes injuries can be catastrophic or fatal depending on the severity of the crash. Negligence is often the cause of most pedestrian accidents, which is why it’s very important for injured victims to file personal injury lawsuits with the help of an experienced Texas personal injury lawyer.
