Pedestrian Accidents in Texas

Galveston, TX – Sergeant Struck by Vehicle At Crystal Beach EventPedestrian accidents in the state of Texas leave thousands of people injured every year. Pedestrians do not have any protection during crashes. As a result, they are more likely to suffer severe injuries and accidents. Unfortunately, many pedestrian accidents are completely preventable. However, we continue to see innocent people suffer the consequences of drivers engaging and reckless and negligent actions.

One of the most common causes of pedestrian accidents in our state is drivers who are under the influence of alcohol. Although we have strict laws in place to prevent people from entering roadways while impaired, we continue to see countless people suffer life-altering consequences due to their negligent actions.
