Fort Worth is generally known to be a pedestrian-friendly city. The city’s continuing efforts to make the streets safer for pedestrians by installing more roundabouts is good news for those who like to walk to work, shopping areas, restaurants, or any of the over 250 parks located right in our city. While efforts are being made to make the streets safer for pedestrians, unfortunately pedestrian accidents are not uncommon in Fort Worth.
Pedestrians find themselves in a perilous situation when cars, scooters, bicycles, buses, or trucks strike them with little or no warning. Pedestrians do not travel with helmets or any other protection so when they are hit by something much larger and traveling much faster, their injuries can be devastating. There are safety measures pedestrians may take such as only crossing at intersections, following traffic signals, and wearing bright colored clothing, but even those things are not enough to eliminate the risk of being involved in a pedestrian accident.
Pedestrian accidents are often caused by someone other than the pedestrian which is why even when a pedestrian is exercising due caution and care, he or she may not be able to avoid all pedestrian accidents. Listed below are some of the most common causes of pedestrian accidents:

After I was severely injured, I didn’t know what to do next. One of my colleagues recommended reaching out to Dorothy for representation. When I finally did, I didn’t regret my decision — I received tremendous support and she treated me like family. She brought the best outcome and I’m amazed at the passion she brings into her work. I would recommend her services without any reservation.
I’ve always known that I needed an insurance policy to protect me if I got into a car accident. But when I got involved in a car crash, I realized how important it is to have a lawyer protect me from my insurance company! This firm settled my case really quickly and delivered excellent results. Dottie secured a fair and equitable settlement, and I’d recommend her to anyone in need of good counsel and representation.
Thank you for bringing my claim against the construction company to a successful conclusion. You made the process less intimidating and made me feel like the struggle I had to endure was valid. It has helped me cope with a lot of post-accident challenges differently. You were more than I expected — thanks again.
