There are few auto accidents more devastating than those involving pedestrians. If you were recently stricken by a car in a pedestrian accident, you most likely now require financial compensation. Our firm is here to help. Please read on and reach out to our knowledgeable Texas personal injury attorneys to learn more about pedestrian accidents and how we can assist you if you have been injured in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:
What are some of the most frequent causes of pedestrian accidents?
Pedestrian accidents are caused by many different factors, however, not unlike most other accidents, they are generally caused by negligence. In many cases, when drivers operate their vehicles at night, they are both fatigued and have trouble seeing, which, in certain circumstances, can cause them to strike a pedestrian without seeing them. In other cases, pedestrian accidents can be caused by districted driving, speeding, driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, failing to observe traffic lights, and more.
How do I know if I have a valid personal injury claim after sustaining an injury as a pedestrian?
When someone is injured in an auto accident, it is their duty to retain the services of an experienced Texas personal injury attorney who can assess the circumstances of their case and determine whether they have a valid personal injury claim. As long as our firm can gather and present sufficient evidence to satisfy the burden of proof on your behalf by proving that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence, there is a very good chance that we will be able to recover the compensation you deserve and need to heal.
What is the statute of limitations for pedestrian accidents in Texas?
As with every state, there is a statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Texas. This is the timeframe in which all those who’ve been wrongly injured must file their claim against the liable party. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Texas is, in most cases, two years, which means that you will have two years from the date of your accident to take legal action against the party responsible for your injuries. Failing to sue within this timeframe will most likely result in you losing your right to do so. Do not delay–speak with our firm today.
