Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
The State of Texas is constantly enacting laws to protect pedestrians who are traveling along our roadways. Unfortunately, we continue to see these innocent victims harm due to negligent drivers. In fact, hundreds of people end up dying as a result of pedestrian accidents in our state every year.
Pedestrians are virtually unprotected during accidents. As a result, they are more likely to suffer significant and fatal injuries and accidents. When people lose their lives in pedestrian accidents, they often leave behind families and loved ones who are forced to grieve their unexpected and sudden loss. Although losing a loved one is challenging to deal with under any circumstance, knowing that they lost their life as a result of another person’s negligence just makes the situation even more challenging to endure.
