How can I build a pedestrian accident case?

Like accidents involving two or more motor vehicles, accidents involving a pedestrian and an automobile rely on proving that the driver of the car was at fault. However, occasionally pedestrian accidents occur outside of motor vehicle activity. In such cases, faulty walkways, the presence of debris and other factors could cause pedestrians to be injured.

Are pedestrian accidents a major problem in Denver?

The one word answer is yes, simply because any pedestrian accident anywhere in Colorado and beyond should be considered a major issue. The answer is yes also because of the statistics involved in pedestrian plus automobile accidents. The following information comes from the CDC's statistics for 2012:
