Pedestrians are the folks on their feet, or using a mobility device such as walker, cane or wheelchair. The number of pedestrians hit and killed by negligent drivers are at an all time high, the highest in 40 years. In 2022 government data showed pedestrian deaths rose between 2010-2022 by over 70%, in 2010 there was 4,302 pedestrian deaths nationwide and in 2022 there were 7,624 deaths resulting from pedestrian crashes. That is 77% rise in deaths.

Pedestrian crossings and distracted drivers are a recipe for disaster.

There are intersections that are simply dangerous for folks not in automobiles or trucks.

Many intersections in Austin along I-35 are notorious for pedestrian crashes. In and around 6th-12th Street and IH-35, Slaughter and IH-35, Rundberg Lane and IH-35 all have higher incidents of pedestrian fatalities.

The same is true along Westheimer in Houston, as well as these intersections:

  • Long Point and Gessner
  • Fondren and West Bellfort
  • Bissonnet and Wilcrest
  • Shepherd and Allen Parkway and Kirby
  • Hawthorne and Spur 527 and Holman
  • Patterson and Washington
  • Taylor and Spring and MKT Trail
  • Bellaire and South Gessner
  • 11th and Nicholson
  • Patterson and Washington
  • West and Airline

We are here to help.

Drivers distracted by phones, drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and folks looking anywhere but the road and distractions around them are a menace and cause serious harm and injury if not death to pedestrians.

Knowing the insurance company defenses to claims brought by pedestrians is important to understand the strategies and how to get justice for their claims.
