Due to the nature of the incident, the surviving family of the pedestrian may be entitled to a wrongful death claim against the vehicles that caused the crash. Unfortunately, pedestrians are at a disadvantage when it comes to personal safety on the streets of Houston. Motorists frequently fail to see pedestrians on or alongside busy roads, and it only takes a second for a serious accident to occur.
