Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Over the years, we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of people who choose to walk to their destinations instead of taking motor vehicles. Although walking is generally considered to be a safe activity with numerous health benefits, it can be dangerous for people traveling near dangerous roads. Many people are struck and injured or killed by vehicles due to negligent and reckless drivers. Each year, more than 7,500 pedestrians are struck and injured in auto accidents across our state.
These incidents are typically preventable, yet victims continue to suffer broken bones and other devastating injuries that force them into local hospitals for treatment. A large number of injured pedestrians are forced to endure overwhelming pain and suffering and deal with debilitating injuries that have an overwhelming impact on their health and wellbeing. Not only are mental and physical pain and suffering consequences of these horrific incidents, but many victims are forced to spend tens of thousands of dollars on medical treatment. When victims are injured in accidents, due to the actions of others, it is imperative that they reach out to a pedestrian accident attorney in Texas as soon as possible to protect their legal rights.
