Woman injured in Texas pedestrian crash

On Behalf of | May 9, 2024 | Personal Injury |

A woman was injured in a recent Texas car crash. The pedestrian accident occurred on a Tuesday night. No other injuries were reported from the accident. 

How the pedestrian crash happened 

The Texas car accident occurred at around 11:51 p.m. According to authorities, a car hit a woman who was walking along Cherokee Shores Drive. She reportedly became trapped beneath the motor vehicle. 

Authorities said fire rescue crews slowly lifted the car using tools until they were able to remove the trapped woman. She suffered several injuries in the crash, including car exhaust burns. First responders transported her to a medical center for treatment. 

How a personal injury attorney can help 

Police may determine through their investigation of the accident that the pedestrian accident occurred due to the car driver’s negligence, such as speeding or texting while driving. In this situation, the injured pedestrian may choose to file a personal injury claim against the car driver, seeking the reimbursement of financial damages sustained because of the accident. Liability has to be established, based upon a showing of negligence, before a civil court judge will determine the claim for damages. 

If the pedestrian is successful in her Texas personal injury claim, she may be awarded monetary damages to cover her accident-related losses, such as her hospital bills and ongoing medical expenses. No amount of money can undo the damages resulting from the pedestrian accident. However, a financial damage award may help the pedestrian experience a sense of justice following the crash.
