Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Pedestrian crashes in the United States take the lives of more than 4000 people every year. More than 700 of these fatal accidents take place right here in the state of Texas. In many instances, pedestrians lose their lives in accidents due to drivers who engage in reckless and negligent actions. We see many pedestrians killed by drivers who failed to yield the right-of-way. Speeding and running red lights are other leading causes of these life-changing crashes.
When pedestrians lose their lives in accidents, families are often forced to deal with overwhelming pain and suffering. The financial impacts of a fatal crash only make moving forward more challenging. Families often have to cover funeral arrangements, burial fees, and other end-of-life. Not many people have thousands of dollars sitting around to cover these costs. As a result, families often struggle to move forward.
