Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
In 2018, studies show that 42 percent of the vehicle collisions that occurred in Austin left pedestrians fatally injured. When pedestrians are hit overnight, the cause is often drunk driving, drowsy driving, and distracted driving.
There are instances where pedestrians make it harder for drivers to see them, such as when they wear dark clothing late at night or go walking in areas with unmarked crosswalks. Depending on the cause of the accident, pedestrians may be able to file personal injury lawsuits if they were not at fault for their injuries.
At The Benton Law Firm, we believe that irresponsible drivers should be held financially liable for all damages and losses that result from their negligent actions. Injured pedestrians should not be paying out-of-pocket for injuries they did not cause.
