Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Motor vehicle accidents in Texas take the lives of hundreds of people every month. Unfortunately, these crashes are nearly always preventable. We see many people lose their lives in accidents due to drivers who are speeding, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or engaging in reckless actions while operating their vehicles.
There are many cases where people are not traveling inside vehicles at all during their accidents. Innocent pedestrians are more likely to suffer fatal injuries due to the fact that they are unprotected during accidents.
When pedestrians lose their lives as a result of collisions, they often leave behind families who are forced to endure overwhelming financial consequences. Many families have to spend tens of thousands of dollars on funeral arrangements, and burial fees and lose a source of income that they have grown to depend on.
