Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
The year 2020 saw a record high in the number of pedestrians who lost their lives in crashes across our state. In fact, 717 pedestrians reportedly lost their lives as a result of motor vehicle crashes. The vast majority of pedestrian collisions involve some form of negligence. We often see victims lose their lives in accidents caused by drivers who are speeding, distracted, impaired by drugs or alcohol, or engaging in other acts of negligence.
When pedestrians lose their lives in accidents, they often leave behind grieving families who are forced to deal with overwhelming emotional, mental, and financial consequences. The mental and emotional impacts are only made worse by the financial burdens they soon encounter. Dealing with medical expenses, funeral costs, and lost wages can be devastating. In some cases, families can work with wrongful death lawyers in San Antonio who can fight to get them justice.
