Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Pedestrian accidents take the life of around 720 people every year in Texas. Despite the number of laws in place to protect travelers who are outside of their vehicles, we continue to see them harmed at an alarming rate. In many instances, victims suffer severe and fatal injuries due to negligent drivers who are sharing the road. Far too many people are hurt by speeding drivers, drivers who are distracted, and those who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
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.
When pedestrians are killed in accidents, families may have legal options available to help them move forward due to the negligence of others. In some cases, families can work with wrongful death lawyers in Primera who can fight to get them justice. A qualified legal team is equipped with the knowledge and experience necessary to get you compensation to help cover various economic and non-economic damages you face moving forward.
