What are the most common causes of pedestrian accidents in Texas?
Pedestrian accidents can occur for a wide range of reasons, though unfortunately, they are most commonly the result of driver negligence. Some of the most common types of driver negligence on the road today include texting while driving (or otherwise distracted driving), driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, driving while fatigued, or otherwise ignoring other rules and regulations of the road.
What should I do if I am hurt in a pedestrian accident?
If you are injured in a pedestrian accident, it is critical that you retain the services of an experienced Texas personal injury attorney who can gather and present all evidence needed to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. Some of the most useful forms of evidence when it comes to personal injury claims include pictures of the accident and its aftermath, witness testimony corroborating your claim, police reports, medical documents detailing the extent of your injuries, and surveillance footage of the accident as it happened. Our firm can work to uncover all of this evidence on your behalf.
How long will I have to sue someone for an injury in the state of Texas?
If you are injured in an accident, it is critical that you do not wait to file your claim. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Texas is, generally, two years, which means that in most cases, you will only have two years from the date of your accident to sue the liable party. Our firm can begin the claims process today–all you have to do is give us a call.
