Like a lot of western states, Texas was built around vehicles, with big roads and highways. As a result, both the people who design roads and the people who use them sometimes regard pedestrians as an afterthought. When that happens, accidents can follow.
Our pedestrian accident lawyers in Texas want to make roads safer for everyone, and we do that by representing cases like yours. By demanding that you get the compensation you need and deserve and holding the at-fault party accountable, our Houston personal injury lawyers also help improve conditions for all pedestrians. Texas roads might not have been made for you, but Carrigan & Anderson, PLLC will work to ensure your financial compensation is.

Damages Available to Pedestrians in Texas After an Accident
People sometimes assume that lawyers and insurance adjusters can just look up a settlement amount based on the type of accident. While insurers may use some formulas to calculate fair compensation, at Carrigan & Anderson, PLLC, we work for you to receive damages tied directly to what you, as an individual, lost in this specific accident.
Using evidence like photos, medical records, expert evaluations, and testimony from you and witnesses, we get an understanding of your pedestrian accident and no one else’s. Then, we negotiate for the compensation your accident demands. You can contact us right now if you’re being pigeonholed in your pursuit of damages.
Treating Your Injuries
If someone else caused your accident, you can qualify to have all your medical expenses covered either through an insurance claim or suit. That includes:
- Emergency care and hospitalizations
- Surgeries and other forms of medical intervention
- Recovery and healing process, including physical therapy
Pedestrian accidents often cause serious injuries, so our catastrophic injury lawyers can seek a fair settlement for both past and future care for your injuries.
Addressing Your Lost Income
Any income you lose as a result of your crash could be reimbursed. We also talk with vocational and financial experts to project your earning ability in the future, potentially seeking damages if you won’t be able to bring in as much income.
Acknowledging Your Hardship
Pain and suffering damages are often a sticking point in settlement negotiations, but we’re ready to fight for them. Getting hit by a vehicle as a pedestrian is incredibly traumatic. You deserve recognition for the fear, anxiety, and emotional distress you experience, as well as any changes in your quality of life.
Recognizing Your Grief
In 2021, one in every six people who lost their life to a fatal injury in a crash was a pedestrian according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). You’re not alone if you have lost a loved one this way. You also don’t have to be alone going forward. Our wrongful death lawyers can represent the deceased’s case.
Damages for wrongful death cover a lot of the same losses as personal injury in addition to providing compensation for funeral and burial or cremation. Since this loss affects surviving family members as well, a proper settlement from the negligent party should include your experiences. We will put our legal experience to work to ensure your wrongful death claim or suit is taken seriously and compensated appropriately.
