Deadly Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Pedestrian accidents can be incredibly deadly for those involved.
Tens of thousands are injured every year across the United States, but sadly, many also are killed in these accidents.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration claims that over 600 pedestrians were killed across Texas in 2015.
These victims leave behind families who have to take on unforeseen medical expenses, such as medical bills, funeral expenses, and other damages.
In some cases, surviving families can call a qualified Texas pedestrian crash lawyer to hold the at-fault party responsible.
