Texas pedestrian accidents have increased at an alarming rate over the past decade. Sherman, Texas has on average 1-3 pedestrian accident fatalities per year. Many more are injured. It is estimated that the North Texas and Texoma region sees about 5-6 pedestrian deaths per year from collisions caused by driver negligence. Driving while distracted and driving over the speed limit are major reasons for these accidents.
The reality of pedestrian accidents is often catastrophic. Pedestrians involved in accidents with vehicles are 1.5 times more likely to suffer death compared to two cars impacting each other. Obviously, this is due to the direct impact the pedestrian takes during the wreck. Even if death is not the result, the resulting injury can take a horrible toll on the victims and families involved. Many victims and their loved ones endure significant physical, financial and emotional challenges due to pedestrian accidents. Often, families are unable to bear the weight of such medical and financial circumstances. Unfortunately, insurance companies are set up reject or minimize accident claims and frequently offer no help to the victim. For this reason, many victims benefit from the services of an experienced lawyer to pursue their claim.
