Aggressive Legal Advocacy For Injured Pedestrians And Their Families
According to the Texas Department of Transportation, there were more than 800 pedestrian fatalities and more than 1,400 serious pedestrian injuries in 2021. Each individual included in such statistics represents a life disrupted or cut short and a loss to us all. Various researchers have reported that Texas ranks high among states that are dangerous for walking commuters. Regardless of the statistics, when a pedestrian injury or death strikes your own family, the issue of pedestrian safety suddenly becomes personal.
Besides the pain, suffering and emotional impact of a pedestrian accident, financial costs are often high for those affected. Medical bills, lost wages and, sometimes, funerals and burial costs, are often more than what any family can bear without hardship. If you or a loved one has been harmed in a pedestrian accident, keep in mind that you may be entitled to compensation for your expenses and losses. I am personal injury attorney Jason Holladay, and I invite you to contact the Holladay Law Firm, PLLC, to learn more about how much your case may be worth and what your legal options are for pursuing damages.
Many Pedestrian Accidents Are Caused By Driver Negligence
Pedestrian accidents are likely to occur when negligent drivers fail in their duty to drive in a safe and conscientious manner. This can include a number of unsafe actions, including but not limited to:
- Failing to yield at crosswalks
- Failing to stop at stop signs or lights
- Making illegal lane changes combined with poor visibility
- Unsafe turns
Pedestrians are particularly vulnerable to catastrophic injury or death when they are struck by vehicles. This can result in lasting physical and emotional damage, expensive medical bills and lost income and/or earning capacity. A personal injury lawsuit can provide compensation to cover these costs. Because there is a statute of limitations that limits the amount of time you have to bring a claim, it is critical that you get a qualified lawyer to represent you without delay.
