Fatal Pedestrian Accidents In Texas
Every year, thousands of pedestrians are injured in motor vehicle accidents across Texas. Sadly, over 600 people end up passing away due to the extent of injuries sustained.
Although being involved in a motor vehicle accident places anyone involved at risk of being injured, the unprotected human body faces little chance against the impact of motor vehicles. When victims lose their lives in pedestrian accidents, it is imperative for surviving relatives to contact a wrongful death attorney in Texas as soon as possible.
