Do Pedestrians Have Right-Of-Way in Texas?

In general, yes. Besides the common-sense reason that drivers should give pedestrians space and stop for people crossing their path, the Texas Transportation Code states that drivers must yield to pedestrians in the following situations:

  • When at a crosswalk, even if the driver is permitted to make a turn
  • When driving into or out of a driveway, parking lot or alley
  • When there is another car stopped at a crosswalk or other location because there is a pedestrian attempting to cross.

Why ChooseEspinoza & Brock?

We have a firsthand understanding of what you are going through and how a personal injury incident can impact not just you and your present circumstances, but your family and your future as well.  Our founder, Javier Espinoza, is a first-generation American immigrant and like so many on our team, he proudly comes from a working-class family.  He worked construction to support his family and put himself through law school so he knows what it means if you are injured and can’t work.  Regardless of how simple or complicated your case is, regardless of your legal status and regardless of anything else—we are passionate about caring for people and defending their rights when they have been mistreated or injured.

I Was Given an Offer For My Injuries; Do I Still Need an Injury Attorney?

Yes, you absolutely should consult with a lawyer at our Firm before negotiating with the driver or their insurance company.  The fact that you are being offered compensation likely means there is recognition of fault.  But, their offer may not actually cover all the damages such as:

  • Current and future medical bills from the injury
  • Lost income while you recover as well as lost earning potential
  • Non-economic damages such as pain, suffering, impairment and others

These are real factors that need to be taken into account.  Don’t let the driver or a representative from an insurance agency try to hustle you into a fast decision for a lower amount than you actually deserve.
