Houston, TX - Fatal Pedestrian-Involved Crash Takes 1 Life on Wayside Dr near Navigation Blvd

Thousands of people are injured in Houston pedestrian accidents and hundreds more lose their lives each year. Pedestrian accidents in Houston and across the state of Texas occur at an alarming rate. There were 7,908 pedestrian accidents that occurred in 2018 in the Lone Star State, including deadly and non-fatal accidents.

According to information provided by the Texas Department of Transportation, 2018 was one of the worst years for Houston pedestrian collisions across Texas. In the first six months of 2018, there were more than 290 Texas pedestrian crashes. The Lone Star State sees more pedestrian accidents than nearly any other state in the nation, probably due to the state’s high population. 

Pedestrian collisions are often more catastrophic and devastating than any other type of traffic accident. Due to pedestrians being totally unprotected while traveling, they usually suffer more severe injuries in accidents than those who are injured while riding in passenger vehicles. For this reason, it is imperative to seek legal representation if you feel that you or a loved one has been injured or lost their life due to another person’s negligence. 

A Houston wrongful death attorney will be able to help you recover financial compensation for funeral costs, outstanding medical bills, and other costs associated with your loved one’s passing in the event that you have lost someone to a fatal Houston pedestrian accident.
