Man Killed in Pedestrian Accident in Odessa

Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 8-Mar-2012

Officials with the Odessa Police Department reported a fatal pedestrian accident Thursday morning, when a man crossing Grant Avenue was struck by a Jeep Cherokee.

Joe Louis Urias was transported to Medical Center Hospital in Odessa with injuries he sustained in the pedestrian accident in Odessa.

The driver of the Jeep has not yet been identified and police are still investigating the pedestrian accident in hopes of gaining a better understanding of what may have sparked it. No one else was reportedly injured in the Odessa pedestrian accident.

Pedestrians are often more vulnerable to injury and death as a result of a pedestrian accident than occupants of a vehicle, because of the lacking protecting they have from the impact of much larger vehicles. Despite the vulnerability of pedestrians and the important responsibility for bicyclists, walkers, joggers and vehicles to share roadways in a safe manner, not everyone always observes established rules that provide order.

Although some pedestrians may have no fault in a pedestrian accident, sometimes, insurance companies and other parties struggle to place the blame on others. A qualified and experienced pedestrian attorney in Texas will help victims by quickly gathering evidence and revealing the truth surrounding resulting injuries, piling medical bills, lost time at work and even death accompanying serious pedestrian accidents.
