Pedestrian Accident Lawyer Scarborough

Anyone who operates a motor vehicle in this province owes a duty of care to all other road-users, including pedestrians. All too often, negligent drivers in Scarborough fail to fulfill their duties of care to vulnerable pedestrians by engaging in various forms of wrongful conduct behind the wheel, including:

  • Ignoring traffic signs and/or signals
  • Speeding
  • Texting while driving
  • Driving distractedly
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or other drugs
  • And more

Because of a driver’s carelessness or recklessness, families can be torn apart, innocent community members can lose their lives, and pedestrians in Scarborough can sustain serious injuries. Since pedestrians are totally exposed to the dangers of the road, when struck by fast-moving motor vehicles, the injuries they sustain are often severe and have drastic impacts on their overall qualities of life.

Despite the city’s stated commitment to its Vision Zero plan to eliminate traffic fatalities throughout the GTA, dozens of pedestrians are killed each year. In Scarborough, safety advocates are calling for streets to be redesigned with vulnerable road-users like pedestrians in mind. Unfortunately, to date, little has been done to protect innocent pedestrians from being struck by negligent drivers. 

Pedestrian accidents most frequently occur during the winter months. Many of them take place at signalized intersections while drivers are making turns. By failing to remain vigilant behind the wheel and neglecting their duties of care, drivers operating their motor vehicles on poorly lit, slippery, winter roads can severely injure or wrongfully kill pedestrians who are lawfully crossing the street.

If a pedestrian is killed in a collision, their family members might incur substantial financial losses. Within two years of their relative’s senseless, fatal accident, close family members might be able to pursue a wrongful death claim in order to recover compensation for economic and non-economic damages they have incurred as a result of their demise.

Pedestrians who have sustained injuries in a collision might also be entitled to pursue legal action against the at-fault driver whose negligence caused the accident to occur. By working with our Scarborough pedestrian accident lawyers, injured survivors of motor vehicle collision might be able to recover damages that include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Prosthetics
  • Physiotherapy
  • Psychiatric treatment
  • Psychological counseling
  • Prescription medications
  • Mileage to and from medical appointments
  • Housekeeping services
  • Attendant care
  • Medical equipment
  • Ambulatory assistive devices
  • Other medical expenses
  • Home modification costs to accommodate disabilities
  • And possibly more
