Quispamsis Pedestrian Accident Lawyer


When motor vehicle drivers strike pedestrians in Quispamsis, the consequences are often deadly. Pedestrians are the most vulnerable road-users, and the ones most susceptible to fatalities or severe, catastrophic injuries caused by the negligence of motor vehicle operators.

In accordance with provincial legislation, all motor vehicle owners and operators owe a duty of care to all other road-users, including cyclists and pedestrians. Drivers who fail to uphold their duty of care by engaging in illegal behaviour behind the wheel may be considered negligent. If their negligence causes an accident in which a pedestrian sustains serious injuries, the at-fault motorist may be required to provide the injured party with financial compensation.

Any number of violations of provincial traffic laws may be considered negligence. Common examples of driver negligence that often causes collisions with pedestrians include:

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

Many negligent drivers whose distraction, inebriation, recklessness, or lack of consideration for the safety of other community members leads to a collision with a pedestrian often fail to remain at the scene of the accident. By cowardly fleeing the scene of the collision, hit-and-run drivers leave innocent, unsuspecting, vulnerable pedestrians to succumb to their injuries in the middle of the street. Hit-and-run drivers prioritize their own well-being over the life of an accident victim who may have been injured or killed as a byproduct of the driver’s wrongful conduct.

Unlike drivers who have the benefit of built-in safety features in the event of a crash or motorcycle riders and cyclists who at least have wearable protective gear to mitigate the physical injuries they may sustain in a collision, pedestrians have no defenses against the negligent drivers of motor vehicles. If they are struck by a motor vehicle, even at a relatively low speed, they could sustain life-altering injuries that impact their physical well-being, psychological health, and financial stability. These injuries tend to be debilitating in nature, robbing accident survivors of their mobility, independence, and their overall quality of life. Injuries sustained in pedestrian accidents may require prolonged hospitalization, expensive rehabilitative therapies, and costly lifestyle adjustments.

Injured pedestrian accident survivors often sustain substantial financial losses as the result of their collision. This is especially true for accident victims whose newly acquired injuries prevent them from returning to work. Injured pedestrian accident survivors could sustain a host of economic damages related to:

  • Medical treatment
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced future earning capacity
  • Rehabilitative therapies
  • Medical equipment
  • Mobility aids
  • Prescriptions
  • In-home attendant care
  • Physical therapy
  • Strength-training classes
  • Psychological counselling
  • Psychiatric treatment
  • Accessibility adjustments to their homes
  • Mileage expenses to and from medical appointments
  • And more

Furthermore, if their collision with a motor vehicle resulted in catastrophic injuries, pedestrian accident survivors may experience a reduced overall quality of life. Those accident survivors who have sustained permanent, severe, disabling injuries may be entitled to financial compensation for non-economic damages in addition to their quantifiable financial losses. Non-economic damages may include pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and more.
