Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

Due to the nature of the incident, the surviving family of the pedestrian is entitled to a wrongful death claim against the 18-wheeler. According to Texas law, a pedestrian has the right of way when crossing an intersection at a crosswalk. Because a car came along as a pedestrian was crossing the street, the right to receive a wrongful death claim remains substantial.
