Pedestrian Accidents In Texas

Motor vehicle accidents continue to be the leading cause of accidental death and injury for children across the United States. Unfortunately, countless children are seriously injured annually in collisions across Texas.

Children outside of motor vehicles are more likely to sustain serious injuries in collisions because they are left vulnerable to outside forces. When children are injured in pedestrian accidents, it is imperative for their families to contact a pedestrian accident attorney in Texas as soon as possible. Victims may be entitled to compensation to cover the costs for medical treatment, pain and suffering, and various other damages incurred from their accidents.
