Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Every year, more than 7,500 pedestrians are injured in collisions throughout the state of Texas. These accidents are often life-changing as they leave victims with injuries that continue to impact their health and wellbeing indefinitely. Brain and spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and other catastrophic injuries require extensive and painful treatment. Although there are various medications, surgeries, therapy options, and other forms of care available to help victims in the aftermath of collisions, all treatment comes at an extraordinary cost for victims.
Having to deal with towering medical costs while being forced out of work to recover from injuries can make it nearly impossible for victims to get the help they need to move forward and recover. Rather than moving forward after an accident alone, you should consider reaching out to a pedestrian accident attorney in Abilene to explore the legal options available for you.
