Toronto Pedestrian Accidents Lawyer
Pedestrians who are hit by cars have the distinct disadvantage of being completely unprotected. As such, all drivers must respect the rights of pedestrians sharing the roadway. Inattentive drivers or those who fail to respect pedestrians’ rights of way can be held financially responsible for the harm they cause and must prove they were not driving inattentively or negligently.

Common Locations For Pedestrian Accidents
Most pedestrian accidents do not occur on specifically on the road, but in more public places that tend to become congested with various types of transportation. These include places such as:
- Busy downtown intersections
- Parking lots and ramps at shopping centres
- Municipal public transit stops such as bus stops
Hit-and-run pedestrian claims can arise when an at-fault driver fails to stay at the scene of an accident after hitting a pedestrian. If the driver cannot be located, you may still make a claim for accident benefits through your own car insurance or that of someone in your household. You may also be required to make a claim for damages through your own insurer.
If you or anyone else in your household does not own a car, you may be eligible to make a claim from public funds designed for just this situation. Our team can assist you in making a claim through all possible channels to recover the benefits you may need.
