Frequently Asked Questions for Our Pedestrian Accident Attorneys in Houston, Texas

Why Do I Need a Pedestrian Accident Attorney if the Driver Who Hit Me Was Clearly At Fault?

During a pedestrian accident claim, the injured party is not pursuing the actual driver for his or her damages. The driver’s insurance company will be charged with compensating the injury victim for their damages — and the insurance company is going to put up a fight.

If you do not have the legal expertise and negotiation skills to aggressively counter the insurance company and their low settlement, you may be settling for a lesser outcome than you deserve.

Our skilled pedestrian accident attorneys will work tirelessly to pursue the fair and accurate amount your case requires, so you can move forward with confidence.

Will My Pedestrian Accident Case Go to Trial?

While most personal injury claims, including pedestrian accident cases, settle long before they see the inside of a courtroom, our skilled attorneys will be ready to go the distance.

Our law firm founder, Steve Hollingworth, has been the lead attorney in over 50 jury trials as lead counsel in over a dozen different Texas counties. Should your case go to trial, we will be ready to aggressively pursue the positive outcome you deserve in front of a judge and/or jury.

The insurance company will value a case more if they know the firm is willing to go to trial. At the Hollingworth Law Firm, we are more than willing — we remain trial ready.

Can I Pursue a Wrongful Death Claim if My Loved One Was Killed in a Pedestrian Accident in Texas?

In the state of Texas, the deceased’s spouse, children, or parents may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim for the loss of their loved one. Multiple factors must be true to meet the legal standard for filing a wrongful death claim in Texas. Our skilled pedestrian accident attorneys in Houston can help you understand your legal rights and options for eligibility during a free consultation.
