San Antonio Pedestrian Accidents Attorney

San Antonio and Corpus Christi are both examples of communities in South Texas with strong tourism attractions. Tourists along the River Walk in San Antonio and in beach areas of Corpus Christi are often vulnerable to accidental injuries caused by automobiles. Anywhere that pedestrians and vehicles may occupy the same roads, pedestrian accidents can happen.

Attractions And Risks Of Walking For Recreation Or Simply To Get Around

Walking is good for your health and good for the environment. Whether you are walking for exercise, out enjoying a nice day, just crossing the street or walking to your car, walking can be a pleasant experience for Texas residents. However, it is an unfortunate fact that pedestrians are at a high risk of injury or death whenever there is traffic on a nearby road.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a pedestrian is killed every 109 minutes and injured every 7 minutes. Statistics show that an estimated 59,000 pedestrians were injured and more than 4,000 were killed in vehicle accidents in 2009.
