Austin School Zone Accident Attorney
Injured in a School Zone? Call (512) 271-5112!
If you or your child has been injured in a school zone in Texas, it is
important to understand your rights. You may be entitled to significant
compensation. The Austin personal injury lawyers at The Stewart Law Firm,
PLLC are here to help you take the necessary steps to obtain monetary
compensation for your injuries. While drivers must always exercise care
when they are on the road, it is all the more important in school zones.
According to Texas transportation code statute 552.008, motor vehicle
operators are obligated to:
- Give warning to other drivers by sounding the horn when necessary
- Exercise due care to avoid a collision with a pedestrian
- Take proper precautions on observing a child or an obviously incapacitated
or confused person on or near the road
When pedestrians are injured in a school zone, the liability is with the
driver. In addition, Texas has passed several laws delineating "no
cell phone zones." Our firm is well-versed regarding these laws and
can guide you through the claims-filing process. Motor vehicle accidents
are a core focus for our team. Our Austin personal injury attorney is
ready to partner with you to bolster accountability in school zones while
obtaining the justice and compensation you deserve to heal as quickly
