Tracadie-Sheila Pedestrian Accident Lawyer


When pedestrians are struck by negligent motor vehicle operators, the road to recovery can be long, painful, and expensive. Injuries sustained in pedestrian accidents are often catastrophic and permanent in nature. Because of a driver’s recklessness, distractedness, inebriation, failure to comply with traffic signs/signals, or other forms of wrongful conduct behind the wheel, an injured pedestrian’s overall quality of life could be diminished in the blink of an eye.

All drivers in the province have a legal obligation to provide a duty of care to all other road-users, including pedestrians. Out of all road-users, pedestrians are the most vulnerable, and the most susceptible to severe injuries because of a driver’s negligence. If a motor vehicle operator neglects their duty of care behind the wheel, even for a brief moment, an innocent, unsuspecting pedestrian’s life can be lost. Those lucky enough to survive being struck by a high-speed motor vehicle could live with the physical, emotional, psychological, and financial consequences for the rest of their lives.

Most pedestrian accidents occur at crosswalks and intersections. Negligent drivers who ignore or fail to heed traffic signals can easily glide through red lights or stop signs, accidentally injuring or ending the life of a pedestrian legally attempting to cross the street. While pedestrian accidents occur in these locations most often, they can also happen in parking lots, on residential streets, on rural side-roads, on sidewalks, and anywhere cars travel in close proximity to unprotected people.

If you were struck by a negligent driver and sustained injuries as a result, our pedestrian accident lawyers serving Tracadie-Sheila may be able to help you recover financial compensation. By working with our Tracadie-Sheila pedestrian accident lawyers, you may be able to pursue a civil claim for economic and non-economic damages you have incurred because of the injuries you sustained in your accident.

Economic damages refer to quantifiable costs arising from injuries. These damages can often be easily calculated by adding up the financial losses you sustained as a direct result of the injuries you acquired because of a negligent driver’s wrongful conduct. In pedestrian accident claims, these financial losses often include:

  • 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 your injuries and the overall effect they have had on your quality of life, you may also be entitled to non-economic damages. Though less simple to quantify than tangible damages, non-economic damages often have a more profound impact on a catastrophically injured victim’s quality of life.

If your injuries are permanent in nature and prevent you from engaging in the same activities you enjoyed prior to your accident, our pedestrian accident lawyers serving Tracadie-Sheila may be able to help you recover non-economic damages, including:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • And possibly more
