Preszler Injury Lawyers

Toronto Pedestrian Accident Lawyer


Pedestrians are among the most vulnerable accident victims. This means a disproportionally high number of serious or even fatal injuries can occur in the event of an accident.

If you have suffered harm in a pedestrian accident as the result of someone else’s negligence, consult with a Toronto pedestrian accident lawyer to begin building an injury claim. An experienced injury lawyer can assist in compiling evidence on your behalf and preparing you for what you should expect through the legal process.

Common Injuries in Pedestrian Accidents

Some of the most common pedestrian injuries can include:

These injuries can be costly to treat, particularly if they require long-term health care. Our pedestrian accident lawyers in Toronto understand the gravity of your injuries and will guide you in the steps necessary to pursue compensation.

Determining Compensation

Talk With Our Legal Team



If you have any questions and would like to schedule a call with our legal team for a FREE no-obligation consultation, contact us now. During this call you can ask any questions as it relates to your accident and/or claim and we'll discuss your options and possible outcomes.

Regardless of where you're located in Ontario – we may be able to help you. Don't delay - call us. Our lines are open 24/7.

Many people who have been involved in a pedestrian accident contact our firm with questions about their right to sue the driver or how to complete the insurance forms they’ve received in the mail. Our clients also need to know the options for available compensation.

If you weren’t at fault for your accident, you have two options available for recovery: Accident Benefits and a tort claim.

Accident Benefits are available to all injured parties, regardless of fault. Even if you were liable for your pedestrian accident, you may claim Accident Benefits, provided you meet the required deadline. File within 30 days of receiving the application and receive up to a combined $65,000 for both Medical/Rehabilitation Benefits and Attendant Care. If you require Attendant Care, you can receive up to $3,000 per month in the case of non catastrophic and non minor injury claims.   If you can’t work, you can receive up to 70% of lost income up to a maximum of $400 per week for Income Replacement Benefits. If you were not working, you could qualify for a non-earner benefit of $185 per week.  Some injuries lead to catastrophic impairments and therefore qualify a victim for additional catastrophic benefits.

Beware of your insurance company attempting to classify your injuries as “minor.”

This can lower the value of your Medical and Rehabilitation Benefits from $65,000 to $3,500. You will also not receive the Attendant Care that you may otherwise require.

If you were not at fault for the accident, the Preszler Injury Lawyers can also help you file a tort claim.  A tort claim is commenced through a lawsuit against the driver responsible for your accident injuries. In a successful claim, you may be able to recover lost income (both past and future), health care costs, out-of-pocket expenses (like home maintenance) and pain and suffering. Our Toronto pedestrian accident lawyers will be happy to speak with you about the options available in a tort claim and file one on your behalf.

Ontario laws require you to contact your insurance company or the liable driver’s insurance company within one week of the accident. You must then complete and file an Application for Accident Benefits within 30 days after receiving the application.  Any delay in taking action could jeopardize your ability to receive benefits.

In terms of filing a lawsuit, you generally have only two years to sue the at-fault driver for your pain and suffering, lost wages and other expenses.  Missing this limitation period may prejudice you for the rest of your life.

Contact a Toronto pedestrian accident lawyer today before you file your Application for Accident Benefits. We’ll be happy to walk you through the process. If you have already filed your Application, we can help you ensure the insurance company provides you with the benefits you deserve. We will also commence the appropriate litigation against the at-fault driver to secure your future.
