Pedestrians accidents can be avoided and pedestrians have the right of way…
Ottawa and cities throughout Ontario are growing with busier traffic, more cars, electric scooters, and public transit vehicles and Ottawa pedestrians have more obstacles to face on our streets than ever. Whether you are hit by a car or in a hit and run accident, our Ottawa personal injury lawyers know that being injured as a pedestrian is a frustrating experience. Sadly, pedestrian accidents occur far too often. Accidents mainly occur when pedestrians cross the street at traffic lights or intersections. When cars, buses, or other vehicles collide, the injuries are often severe or catastrophic. We help pedestrians who have been in an accident and are suffering from serious injuries such as aches, pains, brain injury and spinal injuries, broken bones, burns, scars, lacerations and other debilitating injuries.
Although in most lawsuits in Ontario, the onus is on the injured person to prove that their injury was caused by the wrongdoing of the party they are suing, in a pedestrian accident, where a pedestrian is struck by a motor vehicle there is a reverse onus, meaning that the driver must prove that he or she did nothing wrong! Our Ottawa personal injury lawyers have a tremendous amount of experience when it comes to protecting our clients. We know how to gather and collect facts to ensure that our clients are properly compensated for their injuries.
