Pedestrians are amongst the most vulnerable accident victims, susceptible from metropolitan hubs to rural streets all across Ontario. Pedestrian accidents occur when a person is struck by a vehicle while they walk on the street, sidewalk, or crosswalk, a lot of these cases becoming hit-and-run accidents. While some pedestrian accidents may result in minor, short-term damage, other more serious incidents may lead to permanent disability or even fatal injury.
If you or someone you love has been injured in a pedestrian accident, you may be entitled to get compensation. Drivers are legally responsible for exercising reasonable care and for following the rules of the road while operating a motor vehicle. This is why it is important for you to acquire legal assistants from a lawyer to help you with your claim and get the appropriate compensation needed for your injuries.
There are two available options to obtain financial recovery from a pedestrian accident:
A tort claim is a lawsuit in which you can file to claim compensation for the injuries you have suffered in an accident due to a negligent or at-fault driver. This compensation claim is often larger than what you are entitled to from an insurance company.
ACCIDENT BENEFITS CLAIM
This option is available to you regardless of who’s at fault and it includes up to $65,000 in Medical and Rehabilitation Benefits and Attendant Care Benefits as well as up to $400 per week in Income Replacement Benefits. If you are not working as a result of your accident, you may also qualify for a non-earner benefit of $185 per week.
There are also additional benefits that may be available to you if you have suffered a catastrophic injury or if you have purchased optional benefits through your insurer.
