Pedestrian Accident Statistics
Injuries and even death can result from pedestrian accidents. This is because, unlike passengers in private vehicles and motorcycle riders, pedestrians lack protection from fatal accidents.
Texas is not a friendly state for pedestrians. The vast majority of Texans travel by car. Since automobiles predominate in urban design, most streets aren’t built for people. Regarding sharing the road and keeping an eye on pedestrians, some drivers in Texas do not do a great job of keeping pedestrians safe.
Texas saw a 5% rise in pedestrian-involved traffic incidents in 2019, totaling 5,975 and killing 669 people. Another 1,317 people were badly injured in the blast.
Accidents caused by careless driving, speeding, and drivers failing to yield to pedestrians are among the most common causes. A skilled lawyer is essential in these kinds of cases.
