Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Roughly every 30 hours, a pedestrian loses their life in a motor vehicle accident somewhere in Texas. As you can imagine, accidents involving larger commercial vehicles, like trains, place victims at far greater risk for sustaining fatal injuries in collisions.
When pedestrians lose their lives in automobile accidents, it is crucial that surviving relatives contact a wrongful death attorney in Texas as soon as possible.
