Pedestrian Accidents Claim Lives
Texas roadways are typically filled with traffic every day of the week. Traffic regulations and caution on the part of motorists and those traveling on foot are meant to provide safety for all who share the road. Reckless driving and driver negligence continue to plague the nation’s roads, however. Matters are made worse when a hit and run accident occurs, often causing serious injury or, in worst cases, death to victims and grief to family members who survive them.
It is unlawful to flee the scene of an accident involving injury, death or property damage. The Tylka Law Firm and Mediation Center has a successful record of helping clients whose lives have been devastated by hit and run drivers. Some pedestrians have been struck by vehicles while they were in marked crosswalks. Others have been hit in parking lots when exiting a store and walking to their cars.
Legal Action can Claim Compensation for Victims
Motorists who speed or are careless behind the wheel can be held accountable for their actions by pursuing personal injury claims against them. In situations where victims do not survive their injuries, immediate family members may act on behalf of their deceased loved ones in court. We are prepared to aggressively focus on a driver’s negligence in order for clients to obtain compensation for the damages they have sustained due to an accident.
If a victim survives a hit and run accident, the injuries suffered are often severe and the repercussions long-lasting. Head and spinal cord injuries, fractured bones and serious internal damage are among complications pedestrians often suffer after being struck by a moving vehicle. If you are considering filing a legal claim as you recover from such trauma or wish to act on behalf of a loved one who has suffered an untimely death due to driver negligence, you can begin the process by calling The Tylka Law Firm and Mediation Center in Texas to schedule a consultation.
