Pedestrian Accidents In Texas
Walking in darker conditions makes it more difficult for drivers to see pedestrians before it is too late. Sadly, thousands of pedestrians are seriously injured in Texas car accidents annually.
Pedestrians who are struck by motor vehicles are at an increased risk for sustaining traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, and other injuries that can have a devastating and life-long impact on their lives. When victims are injured in motor vehicle accidents, by no fault of their own, they should contact a pedestrian accident attorney in Texas to protect their legal rights.
