Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
More than 500 pedestrians lose their lives daily in collisions across our state. Dark road conditions make it difficult for drivers to see pedestrians crossing the road. This is especially true in cases where drivers are distracted or engaging in other activities while behind the wheel. When victims are fatally injured in collisions, it is important that their families contact a wrongful death attorney in Texas as soon as possible. Surviving relatives may be entitled to restitution to help alleviate the financial burdens resulting from a loved one’s fatal collision.
