Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Being involved in a car accident can have devastating consequences for victims. When people are left with serious injuries, they often have to go to area hospitals for emergency medical care. Regrettably, more than 14,656 people are left with severe injuries as a result of auto accidents in Texas each year. These accidents add up to hundreds of thousands of people forced into area hospitals for the treatment of injuries. Pedestrians are more likely to suffer severe injuries that lead to life-long disabilities.
Some of the injuries that pedestrian accident victims incur include:
- Broken bones/compound fractures
- Incomplete or complete spinal cord injuries leading to paralysis
- Painful traumatic brain injuries that lead to balance, memory, and mood issues
