Texas Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrian accidents are usually much more severe than other types of accidents. These types of traffic collisions often end in serious injuries and even fatalities for victims. Those who find themselves with serious injuries due to being involved in pedestrian accidents often suffer a great deal, physically, emotionally, and financially.
The average cost of hospitalization related to a serious traffic accident injury is more than $30,000. Most people do not have this kind of money to spend on medical bills and other costs associated with an accident injury.
In today’s world, the majority of traffic accidents are, unfortunately, preventable. On average, over 90% of reported traffic collisions in the United States are the result of some type of driver error/negligence. Drivers are distracted, intoxicated, speeding, and overly tired, causing millions of serious vehicle crashes every single year.
