Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Between 2019 and 2020, the number of pedestrian fatalities across the state of Texas increased by nearly 8.5%. This increase resulted in more than 700 people losing their lives in these often preventable accidents. The year 2020 saw a record high in the number of pedestrians fatally injured across our state. In fact, 717 pedestrians reportedly lost their lives as a result of motor vehicle collisions.
The vast majority of pedestrian accidents involve some form of negligence. We often see victims lose their lives in accidents caused by drivers who are speeding, impaired by drugs or alcohol, distracted, or engaging in other acts of negligence.
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. In some cases, families can work with wrongful death lawyers in San Antonio who can fight to get them justice.
