Texas Laws Allow For Financial Recovery Even If You Made a Mistake
Some states disallow victims from receiving any compensation through a lawsuit if the victim was even slightly at fault for their car accident or pedestrian accident. Thankfully, Texas uses the legal framework known as comparative negligence.
Comparative negligence laws allow you to receive financial compensation for your physical harm, financial losses, medical bills, and more even if you made a mistake while walking. What must be proved is that the defendant is more proportionally at-fault for the accident than you were.
Hiring a board-certified personal injury trial law specialist is critical in these cases. Rocky and his team know how to definitively prove that the person who injured their client was at-fault for most or all of the car accident or pedestrian accident.
Have Limited Time
Statute of limitations laws set strict deadlines for when a lawsuit has to be filed by. The exact time limits vary state-to-state and by case type. Failing to file by your deadline means you likely forfeit the ability to ever receive compensation for your pedestrian accident. Important time limits to know are:
A personal injury lawsuit is the type filed to obtain compensation for harm to a person or their property. In Texas, you have two years from the date of your pedestrian accident to file a personal injury lawsuit.
A wrongful death lawsuit is filed by a grieving family to seek compensation from the party that caused their loved one's death. In Texas, you have two years from the date the deceased passed away to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

We Can Fight False Claims
It is a common misconception that pedestrians always have the right of way. However, there are certain situations where a pedestrian can be considered legally at fault for their accident. Pedestrians may be considered fully or mostly at fault if they were under the influence of alcohol, jaywalking, or walking outside of the crosswalk.
Our personal injury specialist Rocky Walton has spent his career successfully combatting insurance company and defense attorney tactics. He knows how to prove his client was following all relevant laws. If necessary, Rocky can call upon one of his trusted expert witnesses to reconstruct your pedestrian accident as further proof of your lack of fault.
How Can You Help Strengthen Your Case?
Never Admit Fault
A pedestrian accident happens in a flash. Such a sudden and traumatic incident can be very disorienting. You may have a natural impulse to apologize for your involvement even if you did absolutely nothing wrong. Under no circumstance whatsoever should you ever admit fault. If the at-fault driver's insurance company reaches out, refuse all contact and direct the insurance company to our Arlington law firm.
Get Medical Attention
Texan toughness sometimes leads victims to deal with their injuries on their own. While this may be tempting, it can be incredibly counterproductive. You may be suffering from slow-developing injuries that a doctor can identify now, helping you to heal faster. Not seeing a doctor can be portrayed by the defense as evidence that the harm you suffered during your pedestrian accident was minor or non-existent.
Hard evidence is incredibly valuable for winning a pedestrian accident case. Providing any evidence you have to our board-certified injury lawyer gives him extra ammunition to develop an airtight legal argument on your behalf. If you have any photos, videos, or other evidence about your pedestrian accident, you should duplicate it on multiple digital devices and provide copies to our Arlington team.
