Fatal Collisions in Texas
Police officers are in charge of protecting others. Unfortunately, these individuals do not seem to be provided with the same protection. Sadly, there are countless instances where police officers are injured during the course of their duties. In many cases, officers standing alongside highways are struck by passing motor vehicles. Unfortunately, more than 600 pedestrians are killed along Texas roadways each year. When individuals lose their lives in these horrific accidents, it is imperative that their families contact a pedestrian accident attorney in Texas to protect their legal rights.
