Pedestrian Accident Lawyer Hamilton

Experienced Law Firm Serving Hamilton, Brantford, Cambridge

Pedestrian accidents that involve motor vehicles can result in severe injuries and can happen for a wide range of reasons. Poor weather or road conditions and driver negligence can all be contributing factors to a pedestrian accident. However, over the course of our practice, it is typically negligent drivers that are at fault for these serious accidents.

As resilient as the human body is, the mechanics of a pedestrian accident involve a heavy metal object travelling at a high speed colliding with a person; often times, the outcome is devastating and sometimes leads to the death. Injuries that are caused by pedestrian accidents range from broken bones, cuts and bruises, injuries of the brain or spinal cord, and soft-tissue damage.

Pedestrian accident victims typically require extensive medical care, which typically includes lengthy rehabilitation. Combined with large medical bills, loss of wages and other expenses can quickly overwhelm a family not only emotionally but financially as well. The undue stress put on the victims and their families and the mounting medical care costs often become unmanageable.

Pedestrian accidents are governed by the same legislation as other car accidents, except for one large difference-reverse onus being applicable to the at-fault party. This means that the at-fault party must prove their innocence, as opposed to the victim having to prove the fault of the other party. This requirement benefits the pedestrian and often leads to much higher compensation for the injured victim.
