Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Studies show that 42 percent of all traffic fatalities in the city of Austin resulted from pedestrian accidents. When these accidents happen late at night, there could be many contributing factors, such as poorly lit roads, drunk drivers, sleep drivers, and bad construction. All drivers have a legal duty to ensure they’re one hundred percent focused on the road so as to avoid accidentally striking innocent pedestrians. When pedestrians are hit by vehicles that are traveling at high speeds, they’re more liable to sustain very serious and even fatal injuries. Therefore, it’s essential that families who have suddenly lost loved ones in pedestrian accidents follow up with experienced Texas wrongful death attorneys.
