Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Every year, 3,600 people are killed in automobile accidents across Texas. Unfortunately, over 16% of those killed are pedestrians. Traveling outside of a motor vehicle leaves victims with no protection against the impact of speeding cars and trucks. These incidents are not only devastating for victims, but their families are often forced to endure overwhelming mental, emotional, and financial consequences. In some cases, surviving relatives can contact a wrongful death attorney in Texas to get justice for their loved ones.
