Harris County, TX - Pedestrian Injured After Being Hit by Car on Fry Rd

Pedestrian deaths in America have been referred to as an “invisible epidemic” due to their rising severity and frequency. In the past decade, the number of people who have been killed while walking or riding their bike in the United States has shot up by approximately 50%. Pedestrian deaths have more than doubled in Houston in the past ten years, spiking an astonishing 125%. The sprawling sun-belt city of Houston has been basically built around the automobile. The city, by design, is largely dependent on cars. Therefore, the number of traffic accidents that occur there is higher than in nearly any other state in the nation. 

In 2019, 81 people lost their lives in pedestrian accidents in Houston. This is an increase of roughly 125% from 2009, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Pedestrian accidents have the potential to severely affect a person’s life and ability to function. Depending on the severity of the crash, victims may be faced with a number of difficult consequences, including pain and suffering from injuries, piling medical bills, and other costs associated with the accident.
