Whether you are a Dallas native or a transplant, we can tell you that there’s no better way to get out and see the city than setting out on foot. Whether you are going on a family stroll to the aquarium or want to spend some time taking in the fresh air in a park, walking is a great way to get there. Any time you are out and about in Dallas, you are sure to see plenty of people strolling around.
Unfortunately, sometimes accidents happen when you are walking. If someone else’s negligence has caused you harm, you may need a pedestrian accident attorney in Dallas. The experienced team at The Law Office of Dorothy Hyde has over 30 years of experience and is ready to fight for you.
When you are walking, we know you take steps to stay safe by walking in areas designated for pedestrians and crossing streets at appropriate spaces. That’s the thing – pedestrian accidents are often another driver’s fault. Whether they choose to ignore you, thinking you will stop for them, of they simply aren’t paying attention, a vehicle striking a pedestrian can have devastating consequences.
There is simply no way for our bodies to absorb thousands of pounds of force without getting injured in some way. Even slow-moving vehicles can cause damage to our bodies. If we are lucky, we get away with some bumps, bruises, or scrapes. Unfortunately, more major injuries often occur.
2017 in Texas saw 614 pedestrians killed in crashes and over 10,000 pedestrian injuries. Those are alarming numbers for anyone who walks regularly. Drivers who are impaired by drugs or alcohol are much more reckless and pose a significant danger to pedestrians, as do drivers who are distracted by their devices.
Injuries sustained in a pedestrian accident could mean major surgeries and long recovery times, meaning missed work and an inability to lead a normal life. Not only that, but it could leave you emotionally impacted for years.
If you are struck by a vehicle, the first focus is getting the medical attention you need. After that, you will have questions.

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.
