Shelburne Pedestrian Accident Lawyer


The wrongful actions of negligent drivers can end the lives of innocent, unsuspecting Shelburne residents. When pedestrian accidents occur, negligent drivers could steal family members away from their loved ones in violent, senseless, preventable tragedies.

Those fortunate enough to survive traumatic pedestrian accidents often sustain serious, even catastrophic injuries. Depending on the severity of their injuries, the effects of a pedestrian accident can impact all areas of a victim’s life, including their physical ability, psychological health, and financial security. Recovering from severe injuries or adjusting to life after acquiring a disabling medical condition can be as emotionally overwhelming as it can be expensive. In fact, injured pedestrian accident survivors often incur substantial financial losses. In many cases, these losses are 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

If you were struck by a negligent driver and sustained compensable injuries as a result, you might be entitled to financial compensation. In fact, in this province, since the overwhelming majority of pedestrian accident cases were caused by a driver’ negligence, in pedestrian accident claims, it is automatically presumed that the negligence of the driver involved in the collision was responsible for causing it in the first place. Common examples of driver negligence that could potentially injure unsuspecting pedestrians include:

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

Unlike most other motor vehicle accident claims, in pedestrian accident claims, the onus of proof is on the driver involved. That means, the negligent driver who was automatically presumed to be responsible for causing the accident may attempt proving that they were not solely culpable for the collision. Instead, they may try presenting evidence proving that the pedestrian’s own wrongful behaviours contributed to the conditions that caused the accident. If they are successful in substantiating their claim, the amount of damages they might be required to pay the injured accident victim could be substantially lowered.
