Texas Pedestrian Accident Lawyers
Pedestrians always have the right of way, this is a given and a law in just about, if not all states in the US. This is one reason that pedestrian accidents claims are so commonly won. If a person is walking across the street and he/she is hit by a car then typically the blame falls on the driver of the car, not the pedestrian. While there are some unfortunate circumstances in which an intoxicated person or perhaps even a mentally ill person may step off the curb offering very little time for the driver to act, this is not usually the case.
Today things like texting and social networking while driving a car are responsible for a number of pedestrian accidents. In these cases the drivers are without a doubt 100% wrong and should be held responsible for the accident. Unfortunately, there are some instances that occur with no witnesses and very little evidence to go on. These are the tough cases that require a competent group of attorneys to help sort out the issue and get to the bottom of what really occurred.
In addition, not all pedestrian accidents that happen even involve a car. Sometimes cases are municipal liability claims as a result of a manhole which has been left open, causing a pedestrian to fall in and become injured. There are many ways a pedestrian can be injured but one thing that most of these have in common is that there is almost always someone or some organization to blame for the accident.
