Pedestrian accidents involving motor vehicles can result in serious injuries and can happen for many reasons. Poor weather or road conditions, driver negligence can all contribute to a pedestrian accident. However, typically it is negligent drivers that are at fault for these serious accidents.

When a moving vehicle strikes a pedestrian, the outcome can often times be devastating and sometimes deadly. Injuries caused by pedestrian accidents can range from cuts, bruises, and soft tissue damage to fractures, as well as injuries of the brain and spinal cord.

Victims of pedestrian accidents usually require emergency medical care followed by lengthy rehabilitation, which can be quite costly and when combined with a loss of wages, mounting household bills, and other expenses can quickly become overwhelming.

Pedestrian accidents in Ontario are governed by the same laws as other motor vehicle accidents, except for one major difference. There is a reverse onus on the at-fault party, which means that the at-fault party must prove their innocence as opposed to the victim having to prove the opposite. This requirement allows pedestrian victims receive much higher compensation for their injuries.

If you have been injured as a result of a pedestrian accident in Ontario, you deserve compensation for your injuries.
