Pedestrian Accidents Are Far Too Common and Our Lawyers Can Help

Ottawa and cities throughout Ontario are growing with busier traffic, more cars, electric scooters, and public transit vehicles, and pedestrians have more obstacles to face on our streets than ever. Whether you are hit by a car or in a hit and run accident, we know that being injured as a pedestrian is a frustrating experience. Sadly, pedestrian accidents occur far too often. Accidents mainly occur when pedestrians cross the street at traffic lights or intersections. When cars, buses, or other vehicles collide, the injuries are often severe or catastrophic.  We help pedestrians who have been in an accident and are suffering from serious injuries such as aches, pains, brain injury and spinal injuriesbroken bones, burns, scars, lacerations, and other debilitating injuries.
