Potential Injuries from Pedestrian Accidents

According to the Government of Canada, hundreds of pedestrians are killed annually in road traffic collisions. Thousands more are injured every year.

No matter what types of injuries you or a loved one may have suffered in a pedestrian-vehicle accident, you may be entitled to receive damages.

Types of Pedestrian Injuries

Pedestrians can suffer a multitude of injuries after being struck by a vehicle. Common injuries pedestrians may suffer in this type of accident include the following:

  • Head trauma
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal and neck injuries
  • Broken bones in the lower half of the body, including legs and the pelvis
  • Knee injuries, including torn ligaments
  • Injuries in the chest, such as broken ribs or collapsed lungs
  • Internal organ injuries in the chest and abdomen
  • Broken arms and collarbones
  • Cuts and scrapes
  • Bruises and muscle damage

Long-Term Injuries

All injuries in a pedestrian-car accident should be taken seriously. Even if you do not consider yourself to have significant injuries in the immediate aftermath of the crash, you could end up with long-term suffering in the future.

Contact us as soon as possible after your accident, and we can work with your medical providers to determine the exact extent of your injuries, as well as any future loss of quality of life you may encounter.

Negligent Driving Situations

If the driver was acting in a reckless or negligent manner during the accident with the pedestrian, the pedestrian deserves to receive damages for any type of injury suffered. Some negligent driving situations include the following:

  • Driving too fast for the weather conditions or road conditions
  • Failing to follow traffic laws
  • Failing to yield to the pedestrian in a crosswalk
  • Using alcohol or drugs before the accident
  • Distracted driving from the use of a smartphone, radio, or other item
  • Fatigued driving from lack of sleep
  • Failing to properly maintain the vehicle, such as having burned-out headlights, failing brakes, or unsafe tires

Proving a Driver’s Negligence

When filing a pedestrian accident lawsuit, you will be involved in a civil case. This is different from a criminal case, as the burden of proof in a civil case is much less.

According to the Transportation Association of Canada, the pedestrian has the right of way when he or she is in the crosswalk of a road. And vehicle operators must exercise care to avoid a collision with a pedestrian at all times. The vehicle operator must prove he or she was not negligent rather than you having to prove he or she was negligent.

Even if the driver who struck you or your loved one was not convicted of a crime or issued a traffic ticket, you still can win damages in a civil case. Having a lawyer who has been through this type of situation many times will give you a benefit in proving your case.

Recoverable Damages in Pedestrian Accident Cases
