Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
In 2022, a total of 244,000 injury accidents were reported on Texas roadways. Of these accidents, nearly 4500 people died. 828 of these victims who passed away were pedestrians. Pedestrians do not have any protection during accidents, which means they are completely vulnerable to the impact of these accidents. As a result, they are more likely to suffer severe injuries that can ultimately claim their lives.
The unfortunate truth is that many innocent people die as a result of accidents caused by negligent and reckless drivers. Drivers who are impaired by alcohol, speeding, or recklessly operating their vehicles continue to be leading factors in many of these accidents. After experiencing the loss of a loved one due to a fatal collision, your family has the ability to file a wrongful death claim.
Wrongful Death Lawsuits
When it comes to filing a wrongful death action, you must be able to demonstrate negligence existed in order to be able to prevail. This involves showing that the defendant caused the crash due to breaching the duty of care that they owed to your loved one. As a result of this crash, your loved one died, and your family suffered financial burdens.
After demonstrating your losses and damages, you can recover compensation to alleviate their impact on your family moving forward.
