Pedestrian Accidents Are Far Too Common, but Our Lawyers Can Help
Ottawa and cities throughout Ontario are growing with more traffic. As a result, pedestrians have more obstacles to face on our streets than ever. We know as personal injury lawyers that being struck by a vehicle as a pedestrian is a scary, frustrating, and stressful experience. Sadly, pedestrian accidents occur far too often.
Accidents often occur when pedestrians cross the street at traffic lights or intersections. When cars, buses, or other vehicles collide, the injuries are usually severe or catastrophic. We help pedestrians who have been in an accident and suffer from severe injuries, including aches, pain, brain and spinal injuries, broken bones, burns, scars, lacerations, and other debilitating issues.
Experienced Pedestrian Accident Lawyers
In most lawsuits in Ontario, the onus is on the injured person to prove that their injury was caused by the wrongdoing of the party they are suing. However, in a pedestrian accident, when someone is struck by a motor vehicle, there is a reverse onus. This means the driver must prove that they did nothing wrong. Our lawyers have a tremendous amount of experience in protecting our clients. We know how to gather and collect facts to ensure they are properly compensated for their injuries.
