While negligent drivers present a risk to everyone on the road (including themselves), pedestrians are especially vulnerable. When a pedestrian is struck by a vehicle in Houston, or anywhere else in Texas, the impact may claim their life or cause a debilitating injury that they will never be able to put behind them. At Grimes & Fertitta, P.C., our attorneys know all too well how destructive pedestrian accidents can be and we provide a voice for our clients who have been through this firsthand.
If you were hit by a driver, you may be facing an uphill battle and moving forward may seem impossible. Our law firm understands the multitude of complications that victims of a pedestrian accident frequently encounter, from financial problems (lost wages, medical bills, the cost of physical therapy, etc.) to significant injuries and emotional pain. Sadly, many pedestrians have also died in these accidents. When pedestrians pass away, they may leave their loved ones with sadness that will permanently follow them around and other hardships, such as an inability to pay rent or buy food.
After a pedestrian accident, it is important for victims and their families to take action at once. Sometimes, pedestrian accident victims are able to improve their lives by successfully filing a lawsuit against the driver who turned their world upside down. However, it is critical for people in this position to turn to an attorney they can trust.
