Shediac Pedestrian Accident Lawyer


Fatal pedestrian accidents in and around Shediac are all too common occurrences. Each deadly pedestrian accident is a tragedy, the overwhelming majority of which could have been prevented if the driver involved exercised reasonable caution behind the wheel.

In accordance with the province’s Motor Vehicle Act, all drivers have a legal obligation to exercise caution while operating their vehicles, and to comply with local rules of the road. Drivers in this province owe a duty of care to all road-users, especially the most vulnerable ones. Pedestrians have no protection in the event of a collision with a motor vehicle. They are completely exposed to the elements, at the mercy of motor vehicle operators, and susceptible to severe, life-altering injuries as the result of a driver’s wrongful conduct.

Drivers who fail to uphold their duty of care to other road-users by engaging in wrongful actions on the road, even momentarily, could be considered negligent if their behaviour leads to a pedestrian accident. 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

Pedestrian accidents can happen in the blink of an eye. Negligent drivers who fail to consider the consequences of their wrongful actions could, in an instant, steal a loved one away from their victims’ families, or cause a complete stranger to suffer physical disabilities, mental anguish, and financial instability for the rest of their lives.

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

Depending on the severity of the injuries they sustained in their pedestrian accident, many injured accident victims develop additional disabling conditions in the form of severe mental health issues. Being seriously injured in an unexpected, traumatic accident can be an isolating process, and a demoralizing one. 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
