Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Each year, tens of thousands of people are injured in automobile accidents across the state of Texas. There are many cases where people who are harmed and accidents are not traveling inside vehicles at all. Instead, innocent pedestrians are left with severe injuries due to auto accidents caused by negligent drivers.
Some of the most common injuries that victims of pedestrian accidents suffer from include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Broken bones or loss of limbs
- Internal organ damage
When people suffer from severe injuries as a result of accidents, they are often rushed to area hospitals where they are forced to undergo emergency medical care. Many people have to spend tens of thousands of dollars treating their injuries. In cases where people suffer from severe and life-threatening injuries, they may face over $100,000 in medical costs.
