Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Pedestrian accidents happen far too often in our state. In fact, each year more than 7,500 people are injured in pedestrian accidents throughout the state of Texas. More than 600 of these victims end up passing away as a result of their injuries. The unfortunate truth is that these accidents are preventable. Yet families throughout the state continue to face the overwhelming consequences of losing loved ones as a result of other drivers’ actions.
When pedestrians lose their lives in accidents, they often leave behind friends and family members who are devastated by their sudden and unexpected loss. Although there are very few things worse than the loss of a loved one, knowing that they lost their life as a result of another person’s negligence makes the situation even more emotional. Although money cannot replace the lives of those taken away so suddenly, having the financial resources necessary to move forward after a loss can help alleviate some of the stress families endure. Working with a responsive and effective wrongful death attorney in Houston can help to ensure you are in the best position possible after experiencing the tragic loss of a loved one.
