Texas DUI Car Accidents
It is unfortunate to say, but you are at greater risk of being injured just walking the streets than ever before.
The Governor’s Highway Safety Association recently released a report stating that 6,000 pedestrians were killed in 2017 due to deadly car accidents. The injuries from auto-pedestrian accidents are particularly devastating, causing extremely expensive medical bills. When a pedestrian is killed, these expenses are transferred to surviving families, placing even greater strain on an already frustrating situation.
