Fredericton Pedestrian Accident Lawyer


Nobody should lose their lives or sustain serious, debilitating injuries while performing everyday activities like crossing the street at a crosswalk, returning to their car in a parking lot, or walking down a Fredericton sidewalk. Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents are rampant throughout the province. The negligence of motor vehicle operators can cause family members to lose their loved ones in senseless, violent accidents. Their wrongful conduct can also end in severe, life-altering injuries.

In many cases, after colliding with a pedestrian, offending drivers fail to remain at the scene of an accident. Hit-and-run drivers who strike innocent pedestrians leave the most vulnerable of all road-users behind at a crash scene with no concern for their condition. Drivers who flee the scene of a pedestrian accident without reporting the collision to authorities may be leaving unsuspecting, seriously injured community members alone to die in the street.  By failing to take responsibility for their negligence, hit-and-run drivers often leave injured pedestrians with physical disabilities, psychological distress, and substantial financial losses.

If the at-fault driver remains at the scene of an accident or can be identified by authorities after fleeing the collision site, injured pedestrians may be able to pursue financial compensation for the damages they incurred or will incur in the future because of their injuries. If a negligent driver caused you to sustain serious injuries, our pedestrian accident lawyersserving Fredericton may be able to help you pursue accountability and restitution.

Our Fredericton pedestrian accident lawyers know how physically challenging, emotionally taxing, and financially devastating it can be to re-adjust to life after sustaining severe or catastrophic injuries in a collision with a motor vehicle. We are passionate about protecting the rights of injured members of our community, and have a history of fighting on behalf of injured pedestrians to try recovering the maximum amount of damages to which they are entitled.

In addition to the physical injuries acquired during a pedestrian accident, injured parties often develop secondary disabling conditions in the form of serious mental health issues. The process of recovery can be socially isolating and demoralizing. If the injuries sustained in a pedestrian accident prevent a Fredericton resident from returning to their job for a lengthy period of time, they may develop legitimate anxieties over their financial situation, and their ability to make ends meet. In addition to anxiety, injured pedestrians may develop depression, sleep disorders, panic attacks, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and other mental health disorders.

Depending on the circumstances of your accident and the severity of the injuries you sustained, our pedestrian accident lawyers serving Fredericton may be able to pursue a civil claim for both economic and non-economic damages. While economic damages account for all out-of-pocket medical expenses and other financial losses accident victims were forced to incur because of their medical conditions (including lost wages and loss of future earning capabilities), non-economic damages refer to costs that may be more difficult to quantify. Examples of non-economic damages our Fredericton pedestrian accident lawyers may be able to pursue in a civil claim include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • And possibly more

Additionally, if close relatives lost a family member in a pedestrian accident caused by another party’s negligence, they may be entitled to financial compensation for expenses they incurred as a result of their wrongful death. In these tragic, all-too frequent circumstances, our pedestrian accident lawyers serving Fredericton may be able to help provide closure to these bereaved family members.
