The most common type of serious pedestrian accident is that involving a negligent motorist. Well over 5,000 pedestrians each year perish at the hands of negligent automobile drivers. Another 78,000 victims are seriously injured in car or truck accidents, often at the fault of the automobile driver. Countless other pedestrians are seriously injured in non-vehicular accidents each year. These may be attributed to defects in sidewalks or parking lots, poor property maintenance, construction-related accidents, or harmful debris or materials on public walkways.
