Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Pedestrians in the state of Texas have several laws in place to protect them. Regrettably, we continue to see them involved in accidents at an alarming rate. Each year, more than 720 pedestrians are fatally injured in traffic-related incidents across the state of Texas.
When victims lose their lives in accidents, they often leave behind grieving families who are forced to deal with overwhelming mental, emotional, and financial consequences. When pedestrians are killed in accidents, due to the negligence of others, families may have legal options available to help them move forward.
