Toronto Pedestrian Accident Lawyers

Despite the city of Toronto’s best efforts, innocent community members are still dying by the score as the result of senseless pedestrian accidents. Since implementing its Vision Zero initiative to try curbing the rising rates of traffic fatalities in the city, hundreds of pedestrians have continued to lose their lives in collisions caused by negligent drivers.

While city officials claim to be implementing more stringent safety measures to protect the lives of innocent pedestrians, collisions continue to take place at a truly alarming rate. In fact, on average, six people are struck by a car on the streets of Toronto every single day.

Pedestrian accidents occur most frequently at night, and in the winter months when visibility is noticeably lower and driving conditions are more impacted by inclement weather. Usually they take place at intersections and crosswalks. In these cases, pedestrians who are lawfully crossing the street are struck by negligent drivers who speed through red lights or fail to notice stop signs.

That said, pedestrian accidents happen in every season, at every time of day, and in a multitude of settings (including parking lots, sidewalks, alleyways, and other locations). The streets of Toronto can be treacherous, and pedestrians have to remain hyper-vigilant to protect themselves from the unlawful conduct of aggressive, reckless, distracted, inebriated, or otherwise negligent motor vehicle operators.

Many drivers who strike pedestrians fail to remain at the scene of the collision. Fleeing the scene of an accident is an act of shameful cowardice. If a negligent driver strikes an unsuspecting pedestrian and is more concerned with saving their own reputation than saving another person’s life, they could leave an injured community member alone to die in the street in a violent, senseless act of negligence. Those who manage to survive near-fatal hit-and-run accidents could find it difficult to pursue the financial compensation they deserve.

Those who manage to survive violent encounters with negligent drivers often sustain injuries that range in severity from moderate to catastrophic. These injuries often include:

  • Friction wounds (e.g. “road rash“)
  • Sprains and strains
  • Cuts, lacerations
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Concussions
  • Paralysis
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Facial and dental injuries
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Internal organ damage
  • And more

Depending on the nature of the injuries they have sustained, injured pedestrian accident survivors might be unable to continue carrying out the tasks of their jobs. They could lose their abilities to live independently, to control their bowels, to perform regular daily functions, to maintain social relationships, and to enjoy the same quality of life to which they had become accustomed.

By pursuing a civil claim against the negligent driver whose wrongful conduct caused the collision to occur, our Toronto pedestrian accident lawyers might be able to help you recover the compensation you deserve. To review the details of your case and learn if you might be eligible to take legal action, contact our pedestrian accident lawyers serving Toronto.
