Pedestrian Accident

Motor vehicle accidents involving pedestrians can result in severe and potentially permanent injuries to the pedestrian. Unfortunately, the majority of these accidents are preventable as they are generally caused by driver negligence resulting from use of handheld devices, impaired operation of a vehicle, or just a failure to pay attention and share the road.

Pedestrian accident claims follow the same principles as other motor vehicle accidents. In Ontario, all car accident victims are entitled to what is called Accident Benefits. These benefits are there to primarily cover medical treatment and lost wages. However, those suffering from more severe injuries are potentially entitled to additional benefits such as Attendant Care and Care-giving.

Victims of car accidents are also entitled to file what is called a Tort Claim against the at-fault party. This means the injured person can seek to recover compensation for damages such as Pain and suffering, Loss of enjoyment of life, Loss of income and competitive advantage, Medical costs, and Out of pocket expenses.

Even if the other driver did not have valid insurance, fled the scene or was driving a stolen vehicle – you are still covered. In situations where coverage is not available due to aforementioned circumstances, the injured party can file a claim with the Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Fund which will provide Accident Benefits and potentially additional compensation.

The above information is just the basic framework of the very complex and often confusing system which can be very difficult to navigate without the assistance of an experienced personal injury law firm. There are strict time limits which must be adhered to in order to be eligible for certain benefits and if these limitations are missed, the victim may be prevented from filing a claim altogether.
