Pedestrian Accident Causes in Pickering, Ontario

In Ontario, pedestrians enjoy many rights to the road, and drivers have a responsibility to watch out for those on foot and on bicycle. When accidents occur involving pedestrians, it is often the motor vehicle operator who is at fault. Unfortunately, if the pedestrian and their lawyer are not diligent about gathering evidence and pursuing a claim, the at-fault party and their insurer may pay far less than they should in compensation.

At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we like to get to work right away for our clients, compiling evidence and building a compelling claim on their behalf, that shows the compensation the client may be eligible to receive.

We might be able to help you in a variety of types of pedestrian accidents. Some causes of pedestrian accidents include the following:

Ignoring Crosswalk Signals

When a pedestrian is in a crosswalk that has a walk signal, the law is clear that drivers are to stop and let them cross. If a driver hit you while you were in a crosswalk, we may show evidence that they violated the law and that their negligence is directly responsible for your injuries.

Lack of Attention

While smartphones and other portable technology makes our lives easier, it often keeps us distracted from other tasks on which we should be focused. Nowhere is that more evident than on the road. Just look around you anytime you are driving. How many motorists have a digital screen stuck between their eyes and the windshield? Probably a huge number. Unfortunately, a distracted driver is much more likely not to see a pedestrian crossing the road, compared to a motorist who is paying attention.

Reckless Driving

Reckless driving leads to dozens of pedestrian accidents in Ontario every year. A car, given its size and weight, is not as easy as a human body to stop or change directions in an instant. It is also capable of going a lot faster and causing a lot more damage. When a reckless driver sees—usually too late—that a pedestrian is in their path, they often do not have enough time to avoid a collision, and the pedestrian may not be capable of getting out of the way in time.

Drunk Driving

A driver who is under the influence of drugs or alcohol has slower reaction times, worse judgment, and diminished motor skills. These combined factors make it more likely for an impaired driver to strike a pedestrian than compared to a sober driver.

No matter the cause of your pedestrian accident, Preszler Injury Lawyers may help you determine who was responsible and fight for the compensation for which you qualify. To set up your free, no-obligation initial case evaluation, call us at 1-800-JUSTICE.

Your Pedestrian Accident Injury Claim

How does Preszler Injury Lawyers help you recover the compensation you deserve for your Pickering pedestrian accident? We build a compelling claim by doing the following:

Proving Liability

We gather all the available evidence showing that the other party is liable for your injuries. This evidence may include police reports, photo and video surveillance, eyewitness statements, expert witness testimony, accident reconstruction and more.

Taking on the Insurance Company

We know how to negotiate with the insurance companies to obtain the compensation that you may be entitled to receive.

Compensation You May Be Eligible to Recover

If you qualify for compensation for your injuries, Preszler Injury Lawyers might help you fight to recover that compensation. Your settlement or award may include compensation for many different damages under the Ontario Negligence Act, including:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages

  • Medical bills
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Emotional distress
  • Property damage
  • Prescription drugs
  • And much more
