Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
In 2015, about 129,000 pedestrians were treated in emergency rooms throughout the United States for non-fatal injuries. When pedestrians are hit between the hours of midnight and 6:00 a.m., the cause is often poorly lit roads, drowsy drivers, or drunk drivers. When pedestrians wear dark clothing while walking at night, they put themselves at higher risk of accidentally being struck by drivers.
Depending on the cause of an accident, drivers could be held fully or partially liable, which is why it’s important for injured victims to immediately follow up with an experienced Texas personal injury lawyer for assistance.
