Moncton Pedestrian Accident Lawyer


All-too often, innocent Moncton residents lose their lives in pedestrian accidents. Still more sustain severe, even catastrophic injuries, because of a driver’s wrongful conduct behind the wheel. When a driver’s negligence leads to a collision with a pedestrian, both the accident victim and their families could feel the repercussions for the rest of their lives.

Pedestrians are the province’s most vulnerable road-users. Whereas people traveling in passenger vehicles have built-in safety features to protect them from the dangers of the road, and cyclists and motorcycle riders have wearable protective gear like helmets to keep them safer in the event of a collision, pedestrians are completely exposed to the elements. Collisions with negligent motor vehicle operators can cause unprotected pedestrians to sustain severe, life-altering injuries. Survivors of pedestrian accidents may lose their mobility, their independence, and their quality of life because of the catastrophic injuries they have sustained.

Some injuries commonly sustained in pedestrian accidents include:

  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Lacerations and abrasions
  • Sprains and strains
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Facial or dental injuries
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Traumatic amputations
  • Psychological injuries
  • And possibly more

In Moncton, pedestrian accidents are almost always caused by the negligence of motor vehicle operators. In most cases, collisions with pedestrians occur at intersections or crosswalks, when pedestrians have the right-of-way to cross the street. If a driver exhibits negligence behind the wheel by violating traffic laws, they may unintentionally injure or kill a pedestrian lawfully crossing the road.

Common violations of traffic laws that lead to injury-causing or fatal accidents with pedestrians include:

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

Pedestrians injured during a collision with a motor vehicle may develop physical disabilities, psychological injuries, and financial insecurity. Accident victims often develop additional disabilities in the form of debilitating mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). On top of that, coping with the high costs of newly acquired medical expenses can be extremely challenging for many accident victims. If an injured pedestrians’ physical or mental condition prevents them from returning to the workplace, it can be difficult to know where to turn for accountability and financial compensation for the injuries they have sustained.

Furthermore, families who have lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident may be forever changed by the wrongful death of their close relative. They may also incur additional expenses as a result of their untimely, violent death.

Additionally, if you lost a close relative in a tragic collision with a motor vehicle operator, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver to recover damages you have incurred, or will incur in the future because of your loss.
