Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Texas

Dallas, TX - Two Pedestrians Fatally Hit by Driver on Military PkwyThere is a certain amount of risk when a huge motor vehicle and a pedestrian share the road. Regretfully, it can be very risky to walk in Texas. With 7,388 pedestrian deaths recorded in 2021, Texas has one of the highest rates of pedestrian fatalities in the country. The number of pedestrian fatalities in the state has increased by almost 70 percent since 2010, and one out of every five traffic fatalities on Texas roadways is thought to involve a pedestrian. Working with a skilled attorney can help ensure you are ready to bring a case if a loved one is killed in an unexpected pedestrian accident.
