Pedestrian Accidents and Personal Injuries

Pedestrian accidents are serious events, motorists have a legal responsibility to drive safely and yield to pedestrians, even if the pedestrian is partially at fault.

Many times pedestrian accident occur where the pedestrian is within a crosswalk, sidewalk or other presumably safe area of the roadways.

As motor vehicles are bigger, heavier and more dangerous, the driver of a motor vehicle can seriously injure a pedestrian and the driver of that vehicle has a legal responsibilty to yield to the pedestrian.

Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

The causes of pedestrian accidents can be;

  • Negligent Drivers
  • Intoxicated or drinking drivers
  • Careless Drivers e.g. texting and driving
  • Pedestrian error

Regardless of how or way the accident happened, when a pedestrian is hit on the roadway the results can include devastating injuries, long term disabilities and even death.

In 2016 there were seventy six (76) pedestrian fatalities from pedestrian accidents in southern Ontario.

Law Suits for Pedestrian Accidents

The accident benefits are to help the pedestrian get better when they are injured in an accident. If the injuries are serious the pedestrian may consider suing the person(s) responsible by filing a Tort Claim.

In Ontario personal injury law serious injuries are described as;

  • Serious long term injuries
  • Catastrophic injuries
  • Death
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Internal Injuries
  • Multiple fractures
  • Spinal Cord Injuries

Many times in Tort Claims the persons involved are assessed a level or responsiblity in the accident, or a percentage of fault.

For example the pedestrian was standing on a sidewalk and the driver of the car lost control and drove onto the sidewalk stricking a pedestrian. In a case like this the driver of the car would have 100% responsiblity.

Or where the pedestrian walked into a crosswalk without checking traffic, then the pedestrian would have some level in fault in the accident.

Pedestrian Accidents and Insurance

In pedestrian accidents the insurance company may want to contact the pedestrian, take statements, ask them to sign documents and even may offer settlements shortly after the accident.

The pedestrian may still be sitting in a hospital bed when the insurance company contacts them.
