Texas Area Fatal Pedestrian Crashes
You are at greater risk of being injured just walking the streets of a big city than ever before.
The Governor’s Highway Safety Association recently released a report indicating that 6,000 pedestrians were killed after being involved in collisions with motor vehicles in 2017. The injuries sustained from auto-pedestrian accidents are particularly severe, resulting in astronomically expensive medical bills. When the victim is killed in the crash, these costs are transferred to their grieving families, placing even greater strain on an already difficult situation.
