Brampton Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

More often than not, pedestrians are struck by motor vehicles at intersections and crosswalks. When negligent drivers exceed the speed limit, operate their vehicles distractedly, ignore traffic signs or traffic lights, or engage in other forms of dangerous driving, they can easily sail through intersections when pedestrians have the right of way, putting the lives of these vulnerable road-users at risk.

Pedestrian accidents also occur most frequently in the winter months. Indeed, in a recent winter month, the number of pedestrian deaths in Brampton doubled year over year. The frequency of these collisions tends to increase as days grow shorter, when visibility decreases and inclement weather impacts driving conditions.

Unfortunately, though, pedestrian accidents can happen at any time of year, and in any location where cars travel in close proximity to unprotected road-users. Pedestrian accidents in Brampton can cause unsuspecting community members to sustain critical injuries and, in truly tragic scenarios, to lose their lives. 

There are more fatal and injury-causing crashes in Brampton than the other municipalities in Peel Region combined. Innocent community members can have their lives cut short or dramatically altered forever, simply because a dangerous driver refused to consider how their wrongful conduct behind the wheel could possibly affect someone else. Pedestrians who are fortunate enough to survive a collision with a negligent driver frequently sustain life-changing catastrophic injuries. In a flash, healthy, active members of the local community can be robbed of their mobility, their senses, their abilities to complete daily functions independently, their capabilities to continue working, their livelihoods, and indeed the very quality of life to which they had become accustomed– and all because of a complete stranger’s negligence.

All drivers have a legal obligation to take the safety of all other road-users into account when operating their motor vehicles. According to the province’s Highway Traffic Act, motor vehicle operators owe a duty of care to others. When drivers engage in unsafe, unlawful conduct on the road, they essentially neglect the duties of care they owe. If their wrongful actions lead to a collision in which a pedestrian sustains compensable injuries or loses their life, the at-fault driver might be considered negligent. Common examples of driver negligence that frequently cause pedestrian accidents in Brampton include:

  • Stunt driving / street racing
  • Exceeding the speed limit
  • Ignoring traffic signs/signals
  • Texting while driving
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Distracted driving
  • And more
