Potential Causes of Pedestrian Accidents in Brockville

There are several types of behaviors that may result in a pedestrian accident in Ontario. They include:

Distracted Driving

If a distracted motorist encounters a pedestrian crossing the road and is not focused on driving, they may not see the pedestrian in time to avoid an accident. Examples of distracted driving include driving while texting, eating, applying makeup, adjusting the radio, or consulting the Global Positioning System (GPS) and more.

Drowsy Driving

Driving while drowsy (also known as fatigued driving) slows a driver’s ability to react if they encounter a pedestrian at a crosswalk, increasing the likelihood of a life-altering or potentially fatal accident.

Driving Under the Influence of Drugs or Alcohol

Driving under the influence of drugs (also referred to as impaired driving) or alcohol can cause vehicle crashes, but it may also impair a motorist’s ability to see and react to a pedestrian.

Aggressive or Reckless Driving

Aggressive driving (also known as reckless driving) include a variety of different types of behaviors, including speeding, running traffic lights, or failing to yield the right-of-way. These dangerous driving behaviors may increase the likelihood of a collision with another motorist or make it impossible for drivers to react in time if a pedestrian is crossing the road.

These are just a few potential causes of pedestrian accidents. If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses. For a free initial consultation, contact Preszler Injury Lawyers today at 1-800-JUSTICE.

Types of Injuries That You May Sustain in a Pedestrian Accident

Pedestrians may incur a variety of injuries as a result of an accident with a motorist. These include but are not limited to:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and other head injuries
  • Blunt thoracic trauma
  • Broken bones
  • Back and spinal cord injuries
  • Partial or total paralysis
  • Burns
  • Bruises and lacerations
  • Torn ligaments
  • Disfigurement or dismemberment

These are just a few of the injuries you may have sustained in a pedestrian accident. If you or a loved one suffered the above or any other injury, a pedestrian accident lawyer serving Brockville may help you recover compensation for your losses if you qualify.

Laws That May Impact Your Claim

According to the claims brochure of the Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Ontario, you must report accidents to the insurance company within seven days, regardless of who is at fault. While they do allow exceptions to this timeframe, you are expected to report the accident as soon as possible after you are injured, or the insurance company may not honor the claim.

You are also expected to complete and return the Accident Benefits Application Package within 30 days of the time you receive the package. There may be extensions to this deadline. A failure to apply on time could prevent you from recovering compensation through your insurance company.

Another Ontario law that could impact your claim is the Statute of Limitations Act. Ontario’s statute of limitations generally requires you to file a claim pursuing compensation in a personal injury lawsuit within two years of the date of your pedestrian accident. Though there are a few exceptions, failure to act within two years after your accident may prevent you from recovering damages.

Potentially Recoverable Damages After Your Pedestrian Accident

If eligible, you may be able to pursue compensation covering:

  • Out-of-pocket costs
  • Emergency medical costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Replacement of personal property
  • Cost of rehabilitation treatment and therapy

This list is not exhaustive. If you lost a loved one due to a negligent motorist, a pedestrian accident lawyer may also be able to help you pursue a wrongful death claim to alleviate any costs you may have incurred.
