When most people think of road-related accidents, they assume the accident involves an automobile or motorcycle. Although those type of accidents are very prevalent, there are also many pedestrian accidents that fall in the road-related accident category. Adam Kutner, Attorney at Law, realizes that around 5,000 pedestrians die and around 78,000 are injured each year as a result of road-related accidents.
These accidents and deaths can be a result of sidewalk defects, poor property maintenance, parking lot hazards, debris and pedestrians being struck by automobiles. In some cases, the pedestrians are at fault. However, in some instances, the driver of the vehicle is responsible for the pedestrian’s injury or death.
