Riverview Pedestrian Accident Lawyer


Anyone who owns or operates a motor vehicle in the province has a legal responsibility to obey local traffic laws, exercise a reasonable degree of caution behind the wheel, and take the safety of other road-users into consideration. By following the rules of the road, drivers fulfill the duty of care they legally owe other road-users, including the occupants of passenger vehicles, motorcyclists, bicycle riders, and pedestrians. When drivers shirk that duty of care by engaging in unlawful, negligent behaviour behind the wheel, fatal accidents can occur.

In Riverview, pedestrian accidents typically occur at crosswalks and intersections. Drivers who fail to obey traffic signs or signals because of distraction, inebriation, or recklessness can easily speed through red lights or stop signs, endangering the people rightfully crossing the street by foot. While crosswalks and intersections may be the most common location for these collisions, pedestrian accidents can also occur in parking lots, on sidewalks, on residential streets, on rural side-roads, and anywhere people walk in close proximity to motor vehicles.

Pedestrians are the most vulnerable road-users. When reckless, impaired, distracted, or otherwise negligent drivers strike pedestrians with their vehicles, the results can be catastrophic. Pedestrian accidents are increasingly responsible for wrongful deaths throughout the region. Family members can lose their loved ones in senseless, violent, and ultimately preventable accidents, all because a driver failed to pay attention or otherwise comply with the rules of the road.

Even if a pedestrian survives a collision with a motor vehicle, the entire course of their life could be adversely affected by the injuries they sustain. Pedestrian accidents can lead to permanent, debilitating physical injuries, as well as severe mental health issues. The combined physical and emotional trauma resulting from a pedestrian could cause an injured accident survivor to incur new injury-related expenses, and substantial financial losses.

If the injuries sustained in a pedestrian accident makes it impossible for an accident survivor to continue performing the duties of their job, they may struggle to support themselves and their families financially. In many instances, recovering from severe injuries sustained in a traumatic collision involves incurring financial losses related to lost work, loss of future earning capacity, and medical expenses. Common injury-related financial losses include:

  • Medical treatment
  • 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
