Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Austin is a vibrant city filled with streets and neighborhoods prime for walking. Each year hundreds of Austin pedestrians are struck by drivers at intersections or crosswalks. In 2010, a dozen of those collisions resulted in pedestrian fatalities. In 2011, that number jumped higher to an incomprehensible 21. Those 21 unnecessary deaths accounted for more than 35 percent of traffic fatalities that year.
The insurance company’s goal is to minimize the claim that they have to pay. They take money from premiums and pay out as few claims as they can. The insurance company is not your friend.Carl R. Barry
