Pedestrians Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents involving pedestrians can result in severe injuries. They occur for a wide range of reasons, including poor weather or road conditions, as well as driver negligence. Typically, the latter is often the most common factor that is at fault for a serious car accident.

The outcome of motor vehicle accidents can be devastating and may even lead to death of a pedestrian. Despite the resiliency of the human body, injuries caused by these accidents range from soft tissue (e.g. cuts and bruises) to bone fractures, central nervous system injury and/or death.

Pedestrian accident clients often require significant medical care, followed by extensive rehabilitation which, when combined with a loss of wages, medical bills, and other expenses, can be emotionally and financially overwhelming. The stress placed on the client and their family by increasing medical costs may become insurmountable.

Pedestrian and car accidents are governed by the same legislation, with one major exception: reverse onus is applicable to the at-fault party. In other words, this party must demonstrate their innocence, instead of the victim being required to prove the at-fault party's negligence. This requirement benefits the pedestrian, and often leads to increased compensation for the injured client.
