Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Tens of thousands are harmed annually in the United States. Unfortunately, many are killed in these collisions.
In 2015 alone, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) claims that over 600 pedestrians were killed across Texas. These victims leave behind families who have to take on unforeseen medical expenses, such as medical bills, funeral expenses, and other damages.
