What are the Major Causes of Pedestrian Accidents in Austin, Texas?

Pedestrian accidents are some of the most traumatic collisions that occur on our roadways, as a person on foot has very little defense when confronted by a reckless driver.

The reality is, even when pedestrians are following all traffic signs and signals, using crosswalks, and looking both ways before entering our roadways, negligent drivers can still hit them, causing significant life-altering injuries.

Some of the main causes of pedestrian accidents in Texas include, but are not limited to:

  • Distracted driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Speeding or reckless driving
  • Drivers disregarding traffic patterns
  • Failing to obey traffic signs and signals
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Failing to stop or yield at a pedestrian right of way, including crosswalks
  • Making improper turns
  • Failing to check for pedestrians before entering, exiting, or reversing in parking lots or structures

Getting hit by a car while on foot is life-changing but should never define your future. We want to help you pursue the financial recovery you are entitled to for your injuries, so you can take your life back.

Frequently Asked Question for Our Pedestrian Accident Attorneys in Austin, Texas

Can I Still Pursue the Driver if I Was Not Using a Crosswalk When I Was Hit?

All pedestrian accident cases are unique and are designed to pursue results for our clients. Even if you were not using a crosswalk when you were hit by a negligent driver, he or she still had a duty of care to be appropriately vigilant when it comes to pedestrians.

Often, other circumstances contribute to pedestrian collisions, including the driver being distracted, impaired, or fatigued. That is why you need a pedestrian accident attorney in Austin to conduct a thorough investigation and determine who was responsible for your injuries.

How Can I Prove I Saw the Driver Texting as He/She Hit Me?

Our pedestrian accident law firm in Texas provides access to a skilled team of legal professionals and support staff, investigative and financial resources, research analysts, medical experts, and accident reconstruction and engineering specialists who will outline the cause of your collision to reveal the true cause of the crash.

We may interview eyewitnesses from the scene who saw the same thing you did or compel the court to order the driver’s phone records for our review, so we may correlate the time a text was sent or received with the time the collision occurred.

Your case is important to us, and we will do all we can to aggressively pursue the negligent party who hit you for the financial recovery you deserve.

The Driver Was Cited for Negligently Hitting a Pedestrian, So Why Do I Need to Share My Financial Recovery with a Personal Injury Attorney?

The driver who was cited for the collision is not the one who will be paying for your damages. Their insurance company will and will do everything they can to pay as little as possible – no matter who was at fault for the crash.

If you do not have the legal expertise and negotiation skills to aggressively counter the insurance companies low-ball settlement, they are going to come out on top.

Certainly, after we produce a positive outcome for any of our clients, we recuperate our legal fees and expenses at a set rate that is agreed upon at the start of each case. Handling your case yourself will result in reduced compensation for you.  Insurance companies routinely underpay, delay and deny claims.
