Pedestrians are extremely vulnerable when they are involved in a collision with an automobile. Regardless of where the accident occurs or how fast the offending vehicle was moving, there is a high chance that a pedestrian struck by a vehicle will suffer a serious injury such as broken bones, whiplash, concussion, spinal cord trauma, or another debilitating injury. These injuries can lead to chronic pain and long-term disability – sometimes, sadly, the outcome for a pedestrian can be fatal.
Due to the severity of pedestrian accident injuries and the resulting challenges to receiving care and justice, it is important to find and retain an experienced personal injury lawyer to help you navigate through your recovery and journey to fair compensation. You may have numerous options available when seeking compensation for your pain, suffering, expenses and lost income including accident benefits from your own automobile insurance company or from the insurance company of the driver at fault. If those are not options, you may be able to file a claim with Ontario’s Motor Vehicle Accident Claims (MVAC) Fund or through your workplace health insurance. In a situation where the at-fault driver has been grossly negligent, filing a lawsuit is another possible course of action. With so many potential routes available, it is crucial that you seek experienced legal counsel so that you can maximize your compensation.
