Texas is a fault-based state, and therefore, requires all drivers to provide compensation for all of the costs related to the accident if that driver is responsible for the accident. Therefore, each driver is required to carry auto insurance, with a minimum amount of liability coverage. Pedestrians can make a claim for compensation under the driver’s liability coverage.
A driver may be liable for a pedestrian accident with the following conditions:
- Driver distraction
- Drinking and driving
- Speeding and other moving violations
- Lack of attention to traffic signals or signs
- Disregarding use of the turn signals
- Failing to readjust driving due to weather conditions
