Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Pedestrian accidents can have a life-altering impact on those involved. Unfortunately, more than 700 people lose their lives as a result of these accidents. Thousands more are left with serious injuries that demand medical care. Pedestrians do not have anything to protect them during crashes. As a result, they are more likely to suffer severe injuries during accidents. Pedestrians involved in crashes in the state of Texas often suffer from severe injuries like:
- spinal cord injuries
- internal organ damage
- traumatic brain injuries
- broken bones
- severe lacerations
When people are left with these and other severe injuries, they often require emergency medical care. And quite often, pedestrians have to go through months of therapy and rehabilitation following their accidents. Although there are an array of medical treatments for those harmed, there is still a significant number of people who never fully recover.
