Commentary on Kenneth Terry Jr. Pedestrian Accident in Austin

To be rather frank, people don't really give pedestrian accidents the attention they deserve. Even authorities can be quick to overlook these kinds of incidents and just assume that the pedestrian was at fault if they weren't in a crosswalk. In reality, the law is more nuanced than that.

For example, if it was broad daylight, and a driver could see and avoid a pedestrian, would they be excused for hitting them simply because they have the right-of-way? Of course not.

Or take for example a situation like one I handled not long ago where a man walking home after a night drinking wandered into traffic. Evidence revealed the establishment illegally over-served the man, continuing to pour drinks despite the clear danger he posed to himself.

Whatever happened here, it's important there is at least a clear story told by the facts. If nothing else, there's likely a family out there that at least deserves to know they're getting the answers they need.
