Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Pedestrian accidents in the state of Texas claim the lives of around two victims every day. These accidents are often devastating due to the fact that pedestrians are without adequate protection during accidents. Although most people are careful while traveling near roadways, we see many people harmed in accidents as a result of driver negligence. Far too many people are hurt by speeding drivers, drivers who are distracted, and those who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
