Texas Pedestrian Accidents

Houston, TX - Pedestrian Collision with Injuries near Westheimer Rd and Tanglewilde St

In one recent year, nearly 129,000 people in the United States were hospitalized for injuries sustained in pedestrian accidents, according to information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Another 5,376 pedestrians lost their lives due to the severity of their injuries. Pedestrians are almost twice as likely to die during a traffic accident than the occupants of vehicles, and if they do manage to survive being struck by a car, their recovery time is usually extremely long and strenuous. For this reason, it is imperative to seek legal assistance from a Texas pedestrian accident attorney if you feel that you or a loved one has been injured or lost their life due to a pedestrian crash caused by another person’s negligence.

According to information provided by the Texas Department of Transportation, 2018 was one of the worst years for pedestrian accidents in Houston and 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.
