Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
The year 2020 saw a record high in the number of pedestrians fatally injured across our state. In fact, 717 pedestrians reportedly lost their lives as a result of motor vehicle collisions.
Regrettably, there are many instances where pedestrians are often harmed in accidents caused by negligence and reckless motorists. Some of the leading causes of pedestrian accidents in Texas include:
- Running red lights
- Failing to yield the right of way
In many cases, surviving families are forced to endure overwhelming 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 Dallas who can fight to get them justice.
