    Pedestrian Accidents

    Because it is so spread out, Houston is not one of the most pedestrian-friendly cities.  Since there are so few pedestrians, many drivers do not even look for them at cross walks unless they are downtown.  Unfortunately, when drivers ignore pedestrians and bicyclists it usually results in an increased number of pedestrian accidents.  If you or someone you love has been hurt call The Texas Bulldog for a free case evaluation.

    Drivers are legally required to yield the right of way by either stopping or slowing down for a pedestrian in a crosswalk.  However, Houston drivers do not always exercise caution or yield the right of way.  Between 2010 and 2018, over 10,600 pedestrians were struck on Houston roads and of those, 587 were killed.  When a pedestrian accident occurs, inevitably the finger pointing begins.  The Texas Bulldog will research your case and take steps to prove the driver was at fault for your accident.  Injured pedestrians may be able to recover compensation for their past and future damages including medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering.  Our attorneys will always hold negligent and reckless drivers accountable for their actions.

    Causes of Pedestrian Accidents:

    We handle all pedestrian accidents where the driver is at fault.  There are common causes of pedestrian accidents:

    • Speeding – Speeding drivers may not notice pedestrians until it is too late to stop.
    • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol – Unfortunately buzzed or drunk driving is a common cause of pedestrian accidents and fatalities.
    • Driving while distracted – Cell phones have completely revolutionized our lives.  Unfortunately, for drivers there is no bigger distraction than being on a cell phone.  Other distractions can be passengers, radio or anything that takes attention away from driving.
    • Failure to yield – Pedestrians usually have the right-of-way by default, especially if they are traveling in a crosswalk.  Impatient drivers may not want to wait or just fail to notice pedestrians in the roadway.
    • The vehicle has equipment failure – Examples of this include blown out tires, or bad brakes.

    Which Laws Protect Pedestrians?

    Texas laws state that drivers must yield right-of-way to pedestrians in cross walks if there is no traffic control signal, the pedestrian is on the half of the roadway in which the driver is traveling, and if the pedestrian is approaching from the opposite side of the road but close enough to be in danger of hitting them.  Additionally, drivers are required to “exercise due care to avoid colliding with a pedestrian on a roadway; give warning by sounding the horn when necessary; and exercise proper precaution on observing a child or an obviously confused or incapacitated person on a roadway.”

    How Much Will It Cost to Hire a Texas Pedestrian Accident Attorney

    The Texas Bulldog will never charge anything unless he wins your case. We have a contingency fee contract, which means The Miller Law Firm will not get paid unless you recover money. Additionally, our firm will cover all the costs associated with researching your case, prosecuting and litigation. We will also cover the costs of doctor visits, court visits, loans for living expenses and if we need to hire an expert for trial. If The Texas Bulldog wins your case, we’re reimbursed those costs.
