Sackville Pedestrian Accident Lawyer


Even the smallest wrongful actions of a motor vehicle operator can have drastic, fatal consequences. In the time it takes a driver to glance away from the road to check a cell phone notification, change the radio station, or adjust their GPS, life-changing pedestrian accidents can occur.

Pedestrians are the most vulnerable road-users, and the most susceptible to fatal injuries as the result of a motor vehicle operator’s negligence. These tragic accidents are so devastating because they are almost always preventable. Drivers who fail to consider the consequences of their wrongful actions can accidentally kill an unsuspecting, innocent stranger in a violent, senseless fashion. By engaging in negligent conduct, even for the briefest of moments, drivers can end the life of a community member, or cause them to sustain catastrophic, debilitating injuries.

Survivors of pedestrian accidents who have suffered severe injuries often develop serious mental health issues as a result of their physical injuries. After being struck by a negligent driver, the road to recovery can be isolating, demoralizing, and expensive, causing accident victims to develop unhealthy thought patterns, emotional distress, and legitimate financial worries. This is especially true for injured accident survivors who can no longer continue performing the duties of their job as a result of the severe injuries they have sustained. As a result of being physically injured in a pedestrian accident, victims could develop psychological injuries, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Insomnia
  • Other sleep disorders
  • Alcohol use disorder
  • And more

As a result of being struck by a negligent driver, injured pedestrian accident survivors often incur substantial financial losses. These losses are often related to:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages due to missed work
  • 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

All drivers in the province are required to provide a duty of care to all-road users, especially the most vulnerable. When drivers neglect their responsibilities to the safety of others, they put the lives of countless road-users at risk. If a driver engages in wrongful behaviour and a pedestrian accident ensues, they may be responsible for compensating the people injured because of their traffic law violation.

Common examples of driver negligence that frequently causes fatal or injurious pedestrian accidents include:

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