In the United States an average of 1,000 innocent pedestrians are injured every day by negligent drivers of motor vehicles. Many Texas residents, including those in Brownsville or Harlingen, suffer broken bones, paralysis, brain injuries, coma and death. Negligent and unsafe drivers must be responsible for injuries that are inflicted on others. Here in Cameron County and its bigger cities such as Brownsville, Harlingen, or Los Fresnos, we receive many inquiries from pedestrians as we are considered one of the best pedestrian accident attorneys in Brownsville, and throughout the county. Our accident attorneys can help you sue for damages, up to and including the insurance company of a motor vehicle, truck or anything else that cause the accident.
Below are some findings regarding 2004 pedestrian accidents:
- A pedestrian was injured in a traffic-related accident every 5 minutes.
- Nearly 5,900 pedestrians were killed in traffic-related accidents.
- Males accounted for two-thirds of all pedestrian injuries.
Unfortunately, children account for most pedestrians injured by a motor vehicle. In fact, children under the age of four account for nearly 40 percent of pedestrian-injury related deaths. If you have children, now is the time to discuss pedestrian safety. Teach children to cross at a crosswalk or corner whenever possible and to look both ways and continue looking when they cross. Make sure your child wears reflective clothing or carries a flashlight when walking at night, especially on Halloween, a day that notoriously has more pedestrian accidents than any other day of the year.
