When you are hit by a car, your unprotected body is struck by a large, heavy object that may be moving at high speed. You may be vulnerable to many of the same injuries as motorcyclists and bicyclists, such as broken bones, strains and sprains as well as more serious damage such as head and spinal injuries and severe psychological trauma.
A number of factors can cause a pedestrian accident, including:
If you are hit by a car, you may experience lost wages, expenses for medical care, rehabilitation, and home and personal care as well as difficulty doing what you did before. Our pedestrian accident lawyers for North York can help you access insurance benefits to compensate for those losses and claim against the driver who hit you. Even if you are a victim of a hit-and-run accident, we can help you claim benefits and damages.
Many cars hit pedestrians when they are not in a crosswalk, or when they are intoxicated or not paying attention to their surroundings. Even if you are at fault in some way, you can still claim accident benefits. You may also be able to claim damages against the driver who hit you, even if you have been ticketed for jaywalking.
