Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Every day, pedestrian accidents take place across our state. Quite often, they are caused by drivers who fail to use appropriate care while operating their vehicles. Being involved in a Texas pedestrian accident can be life-changing. Thousands of people are left with debilitating injuries that drastically impact nearly every aspect of their lives. Unfortunately, more than 700 pedestrians end up passing away as a result of motor vehicle collisions.
The vast majority of pedestrian accidents involve some form of negligence. We often see victims harmed in accidents caused by drivers who are speeding, impaired by drugs or alcohol, distracted, or engaging in other acts of negligence.
When victims suffer spinal cord injuries, back injuries, and traumatic brain injuries, they often require emergency surgery and long-term care. These and other serious injuries can be incredibly debilitating. To make matters even worse, many people never fully recover. Instead, they are left with permanently disabling conditions.
