How do pedestrian accidents happen?

Pedestrian accidents, unfortunately, can happen for a variety of reasons. Oftentimes, poorly-lit roads, especially at night, can prevent a motorist from seeing an oncoming pedestrian. This causes some of the most brutal car accidents. Additionally, overgrown vegetation is also a common cause of pedestrian accidents. However, the most common cause of pedestrian accidents is sheer driver negligence. Some examples of driver negligence can include driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, driving while fatigued, texting and driving, speeding, and more.

Can I sue for an injury sustained as a pedestrian?

Fortunately, in many cases, you can. However, you will need to retain the services of a knowledgeable and aggressive personal injury attorney. Our firm will tirelessly work to gather and present evidence, proving your personal injury claim. For example, in many cases, our firm can subpoena security camera footage to obtain the video evidence of your accident needed to satisfy the burden of proof. Additionally, we can strategically utilize witness testimony to disprove any discrepancies the opposing insurance company may suggest. Once we prove that you were injured due to another party’s negligence, you should receive the financial compensation you deserve and need

What is the statute of limitations for pedestrian accidents in Texas?

Every state has a timeframe in place for injured individuals to file a lawsuit, known as the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Texas is two years, granting individuals two years from the date of their accident to take legal action against the negligent motorist responsible for their injuries. Do not make the mistake of waiting longer than two years to file–you will almost always be barred from suing as a result. We are ready to begin the claims process on your behalf.
