Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
The Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center released a study and fund that 4,280 pedestrians were killed in accidents in 2012 across the US. This number has decreased by 1,000 over the last 10 years but still, there were 70,000 reported injuries to pedestrians as a result of motor vehicle accidents. Back in 2017, a 32-year-old man was killed after being struck by a vehicle in El Paso. The man was struck by a car after standing on the shoulder from being in a car accident. Another car was coming down the street and swerved to avoid a stalled vehicle and hit a disabled vehicle from the previous crash and also hit the persons involved in the previous crash.
It is angering for pedestrians across the country and in an active city like El Paso that they have to be extra aware of everything around them. Pedestrians are attempting to better their health by walking whether it be to work or just for exercise and should not be worried about being affected by cars who don’t follow the rules of the road.
Pedestrian injuries can be very severe and require long hospital stays and also lead to ongoing health issues which in turn creates large hospital bills. Pedestrians are susceptible to serious injuries as they have no form of protecting themselves from a car that may hit them. If the pedestrian at a high speed, they could be a victim or either wrongful death or life-threatening injuries. Drivers in cities like El Paso are slowly but surely learning to be aware of pedestrians but only after there have been many traumatic accidents. El Paso still has a way to go until pedestrians are 100% safe so until that happens, it’s important to have an El Paso Pedestrian Accident Attorney available.
