Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Pedestrian accidents across Texas take the lives of more than 700 people every year. Unfortunately, pedestrians have no protection during accidents. As a result, they are at an increased risk of suffering significant consequences due to collisions.
Although our state is constantly enacting laws to protect pedestrians, we continue to see them harmed at an alarming rate. Nearly 80% of crashes that occur in our state are a result of drivers who engage in reckless, negligent, and malicious actions while operating their vehicles.
Some of the leading causes of pedestrian accidents include:
- Drivers who are distracted while behind the wheel
- Drivers who are under the influence of drugs
- Drivers who are impaired by alcohol
- Drivers who fail to yield to pedestrians in designated crossing areas
- Drivers who pass stop signs and run red lights at intersections
