Fatal Bicycle Accidents in Texas
Each year, more than 100 people lose their lives while riding bicycles in the state of Texas. These accidents are often devastating due to the fact that pedestrians are without adequate protection during accidents. Although most people are careful while traveling near roadways, we see many people harmed in accidents as a result of driver negligence. Far too many people are hurt by speeding drivers, drivers who are distracted, and those who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Losing a loved one in a pedestrian accident can be life-changing. Most likely, you will have to deal with towering financial consequences.
