An investigation of this accident will prove essential due to the fact that a pedestrian was fatally struck in an auto-pedestrian accident. Due to the nature of the incident, the victim is entitled to a personal injury claim against the driver of the vehicle. 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 claim is highly substantial.
