Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Every year, more than 700 pedestrians lose their lives as a result of motor vehicle accidents in the state of Texas. Thousands more are left with significant injuries that require emergency medical care. Quite often, victims of pedestrian accidents are left with spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and other painful injuries that demand emergency medical treatment.
Unfortunately, we see many people hurt in crashes due to drivers who engage in reckless and negligent actions. When drivers speed, operate their vehicles while impaired by drugs or alcohol, or text while driving, they place the lives of others sharing the road at risk. Pedestrians are particularly vulnerable due to the fact that they have no protection during accidents.
