Markham Pedestrian Accident Injuries Are Frequently Serious

Pedestrian accidents frequently lead to serious injuries, according to the CBC. Even at relatively low speeds, the impact of a car, truck, or van on a person’s body can be substantial. The type and severity of injuries can vary widely.

Possible injuries include:

  • Broken bones
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Scarring injuries to the face and neck
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Internal bleeding
  • Paralysis
  • Amputation

In addition, you may have suffered financial and emotional expenses and losses as a result of the accident. This could include pain and suffering, out-of-pocket expenses, lost wages, and other damages.

Many pedestrian accident cases may be preventable. If the motorist that caused your injuries acted carelessly, recklessly, negligently, or deliberately, you may be eligible to hold them liable through a tort claim. To learn more about this type of legal action, reach out to a pedestrian accident lawyer serving Markham from Preszler Injury Lawyers today. We serve Markham and other nearby communities.

Recoverable Compensation Following a Markham Pedestrian Accident

Assuming you were not liable for your accident and you qualify to recover compensation, there may be two options for financial recovery based on the facts of your case:

Accident Benefits Under the Insurance Act of Ontario

The provincial government sets the amount and stipulations for accident benefits under the Insurance Act of Ontario. These no-fault benefits are available to anyone injured in a motor vehicle accident regardless of fault or negligence. You may be eligible as long as your injuries occurred in an accident, and you meet the deadline to apply.

Accident Benefits could include:

  • Up to $65,000 for combined Medical and Rehabilitation Benefits and Attendant Care Benefits of which up to $3,000 per month for Attendant Care Benefits can be paid
  • Up to $400 per week for Income Replacement Benefits if you have a job or were on Employment Insurance at the time of the accident or were not employed but had worked for 26 of the 52 weeks prior
  • A non-earner benefit of $185 per week if you do not have a job
  • Additional benefits for catastrophic injuries

Tort Claims for Negligence Accidents

If there is evidence to prove the driver of the motor vehicle that hit you caused your accident and injuries, you may be eligible to pursue a fault-based tort claim against them. This may require our team to file a lawsuit against the driver in an attempt to recover lost income, costs related to your medical care, out-of-pocket losses, pain and suffering, and other damages if you are eligible.

To learn more about the possibility of recovering compensation through a tort claim, call Preszler Injury Lawyers today at 1-800-JUSTICE.

Act Quickly to Preserve Your Rights After a Markham Pedestrian Accident

In Ontario, you must notify either your insurer or the insurance company that represents the at-fault driver within a week of the accident. If you intend to apply for accident benefits, you have 30 days following the receipt of the application to complete it and file your application. Failure to meet either of these deadlines could prevent you from receiving this type of compensation.

In cases where you are eligible to pursue a tort-based claim, and you intend to do so, the Limitations Act generally gives you two years from the date of the accident to take legal action.

If you reach out to our team with enough time to file your accident benefits application or a negligence lawsuit, and we believe you are well-qualified to take legal action, we may be able to help you navigate this process, build a strong case, and pursue the compensation you deserve under Ontario law.
