Pedestrian Accident Lawyers in Austin
Texas recently ranked in the top ten states in pedestrian fatalities per 100,000 residents. This startling statistic is a clear indication that accidents involving pedestrians and motor vehicles are a serious problem. These accidents occur most often on crowded urban streets where pedestrians and motor vehicles are forced to share a tight space. Most pedestrian accidents occur during morning and afternoon rush hour, with fatalities more common between 5 pm and 11 pm.
Pedestrian accidents are caused in large part due to the negligent actions of a motor vehicle driver such as DUI, inability to see a pedestrian due to poorly-lit roads, careless or reckless driving due to distraction and others. Injuries sustained by the victim of an accident involving a motor vehicle may include broken bones, lost limbs, internal injuries, traumatic brain injuries, paralysis and sadly, death in many cases. Anyone who suffers these injuries as a pedestrian in a motor vehicle accident should consult an Austin Pedestrian Accident Lawyer as soon as possible to determine whether there is a legitimate case.
