Our Texas Injury Lawyers Seek Financial Compensation for Galveston Pedestrian Accident Victims
When a pedestrian suffers injuries because of a negligent driver, they often require extensive treatment, rehabilitation, and support to recover. Some never fully recover from their injuries and have various levels of disability for the rest of their lives. In addition to medical bills piling up, they miss work and often have no income during this time.
Our attorneys do not believe victims should struggle with these financial stresses. After all, they did not cause the collision or their injuries.
To this end, our Galveston pedestrian accident lawyers seek and recover fair compensation for these victims based on the case facts. We identify, document, and value their recoverable damages, working to secure a settlement or court award for them. This could include money for economic and non-economic damages such as:
- Medical care, current and future
- Loss of income, current and future
- Reduced ability to work and earn for lasting injuries
- Property damage
- Miscellaneous expenses
- Pain and suffering damages
- Wrongful death damages (if you lost a loved one in a fatal Galveston pedestrian accident)
We Represent Loved Ones Who Lost Someone in a Pedestrian Accident
Under Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 71, survivors can hold the at-fault driver responsible for their loved one’s injuries and death. They can often recover various types of compensation for medical bills, income losses, loss of services, and more through an insurance claim or lawsuit.
Our attorneys handle these cases regularly. We approach them with compassion and fight for justice for our clients and their loved ones. We are here to answer your questions and assess your options today.

Our Galveston Pedestrian Collision Lawyers Will Gather Evidence for a Compelling Case
When a driver hits a pedestrian, the driver is often at fault in a collision. Laws generally protect pedestrians because of the major risk of serious injuries if a car hits them. To hold the driver liable, we must convince their insurance carrier or a jury in a civil case that the driver acted negligently. There are four elements to negligence. These include:
- Duty of care, generally created by traffic laws that protect pedestrians
- Breach of duty, generally including breaking a traffic law
- Proximate cause, which should be their breach of duty
- Harm, including physical, emotional, and financial damages
Our Galveston attorneys gather evidence to show each of these elements is present. This is necessary to build a compelling case against the at-fault driver. We investigate the pedestrian accident case to uncover evidence that could include:
- The accident report filed by law enforcement officers at the scene
- A survey of the accident scene
- Eyewitness statements
- Video footage of the collision
- Physical evidence, when available
- Relevant medical records
- Expert witness testimony
- Documentation of damages

When Should I Hire a Galveston Pedestrian Accident Lawyer for My Case?
Many accident victims in Galveston want to know how long they have to take legal action. Generally, there is a two-year deadline to sue liable parties, per the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003. However, this is not the best timeline to consider for pursuing compensation based on pedestrian accident injuries.
Building a strong and convincing case requires our Galveston lawyers to identify and preserve critical evidence quickly. We cannot begin this process until we learn more about your accident and you hire our team to represent you.
Sometimes, key evidence does not last. For example, businesses frequently record over surveillance videos regularly. A video of your crash may be available, but only if we act quickly to preserve it. Contact us as quickly as possible so we can aim to build your injury case.
