Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Small children are often wandering around on foot. Unfortunately, their size makes it difficult for vehicles to see them before it is too late. Unfortunately, more than 600 pedestrians lose their lives in collisions across our state each year. A large percentage of those killed are children, who stand very little chance against the impact of motor vehicles weighing thousands of pounds. When children lose their lives in fatal collisions, it is crucial that their families contact a wrongful death attorney in Texas as soon as possible to protect their legal rights.
