Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Every year, over 600 pedestrians are killed in motor vehicle accidents while thousands more are left injured. Being harmed in a pedestrian accident can have a major impact on the lives of victims and their families.
Injuries like spinal cord injuries, TBIs, and broken bones require extensive medical treatment and weeks or even months of recovery. Not only are victims left to deal with overwhelming pain and suffering, but they are financially drained from tending to medical expenses while being forced out of work to recover.
