Pedestrian Accidents in Texas

Pedestrian accidents are devastating events that typically result in life-altering injuries or death. Hit and run pedestrian accidents are not uncommon, and pedestrian accidents, in general, are becoming even more common with increased smartphone usage. Whether the driver remains on the scene or not, there may be no witnesses or witnesses may not have seen the entire event. You need the help of an experienced Amarillo pedestrian accident lawyer who can fight to recover the full compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Please call Wood Law Firm, LLP at (806) 304-0447 for a free consultation with an experienced attorney who will represent you through every step of the process.

Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

In your pedestrian accident claim, we must establish fault. To do that, we must determine the cause or causes of your accident.

Driver negligence is typically involved and can include:

  • Failure to observe crosswalks
  • Distracted driving
  • Disobeying traffic signals
  • Intoxication
  • Failure to check blind spots before backing out of a parking space or driveway
  • Speeding or driving too fast for the weather or traffic conditions
  • Failure to use caution when passing a vehicle that is stopped on the side of the road
  • Failure to use caution in areas where children are known to be present
  • Failure to use appropriate caution in hazardous weather conditions
  • Failure to use caution in construction zones
  • Improper passing of school buses
  • Failure to use turn signals

Driver negligence is not the only cause of pedestrian accidents. Other common causes include:

  • Defective vehicles
  • Malfunctioning traffic signals
  • Poorly designed intersections
  • Faulty streetlights
  • Lack of streetlights in areas where pedestrians are likely to be present
  • Poor or faulty lighting in parking lots and parking garages
