Motor vehicle accidents which include pedestrians are almost always going to result in severe injuries. They can occur for a wide range of different reasons such as driver negligence and poor weather conditions, for instance. The former is much more common. No one is immune from accidents of this type and pedestrians of varying ages are commonly hurt in collisions. In Ontario, however, the responsibility is on the driver to take care of the pedestrians as they are more exposed and vulnerable when it comes to sustaining an injury. With this in mind, the pedestrian who have been involved in such an accident are entitled to compensation for the injuries they’ve sustained. And that is why A&M Injury Law represents your rights and ensures that you are properly compensated.
Our injury lawyers know that the outcome of a motor vehicle accident can be incredibly devastating and it could even cause the death of the pedestrian. There are different kinds of injuries that might come to light as a result of an accident of this type. When you or a loved one is fatally injured in a motorist-pedestrian accident, the cause of death is usually a catastrophic brain or head injury. Though we cannot prevent an accident we can ensure that you or your family is compensated so that you can start on your road to recovery. There are other injuries associated with the accident which you need to be aware of and we cover all claims filed due to:
- Multiple traumatic injuries
- Crush injuries to the head
- Significant blunt force trauma to your head
- Traumatic brain injury
- Asphyxia related with being run over
- Lacerations and contusions
- Orthopedic injuries
- Spinal as well as back injuries
You can claim no-fault benefits of an accident which are associated with your injuries under the motor vehicle insurance policy of the at-fault who has led to the accident. You can also bring on a case against the driver’s insurance in case the driver was negligent.
At A&M Injury Law, we know that pedestrian accident victims would commonly require extensive medical care and rehabilitation. When you combine this with the loss of income, medical bills amongst many other expenses, the entire situation gets quite financially and emotionally overwhelming. The stress which is being placed on the family of the injured as well as on the victim personally is quite insurmountable. That is why we step in to take care of those aspects.
Typically the same legislation is governing both motor-vehicle and pedestrian accidents. However, there is one key variable – in pedestrian accident cases the at-fault party has to prove his innocence instead of the victim having to prove the negligence. This is the reverse onus principle which is quite appropriate.
A&M Injury Law is going to provide you with an objective estimation on the amount that you are eligible to receive. We can also provide you with all the answers regarding the process of claiming settlement. The claim amount is generally determined by the severity of your injuries and you may get pecuniary damages that are quantifiable as well as non-pecuniary damages.
