Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Every day a pedestrian loses their life on Texas roads after being run over by vehicles. There is a plethora of reasons why drivers accidentally strike pedestrians, but the most common is distracted driving. When drivers look down at their phones for a few seconds to check a text message, watch a video, comment on a social media post, search for music, and more, they risk not seeing a pedestrian and accidentally hitting them.
At The Benton Law Firm, we believe negligent drivers should be completely responsible for covering medical bills, funeral expenses, and more, if they hit someone with their vehicle.
