Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Nearly 8,000 pedestrian accidents were reported in 2018 throughout Texas. Unfortunately, most drivers aren’t paying attention when they accidentally run over pedestrians. Drivers are often looking down at their phones at the time of the crash, turning around to talk to passengers, looking down to eat their food, or even bending down to search for lost items. Other times drivers are intoxicated, tired, or just plain reckless.
When this happens, it’s important for injured pedestrians to follow up with experienced personal injury attorneys for help.
