Pedestrians Accidents Lawyer In Barrie
Motor vehicle accidents involving a pedestrian can cause serious injuries and can happen for many different reasons. Contributing factors such as poor weather or road conditions, as well driver negligence may all play a role in the accident.
Being struck by a motor vehicle can have devastating and sometimes deadly consequences. Injuries caused by pedestrian accidents can range from soft tissue damage, cuts and bruises, to fractures and injuries of the brain and spinal cord.
Pedestrian accidents typically require extensive medical care followed by lengthy and often costly rehabilitation. Mounting medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses can quickly become overwhelming and place undue financial and emotional stress on the victim and his or her family.
Pedestrian accidents in Ontario fall under the same category as motor vehicle accidents and are thus governed by the same legislation. However, there is one major difference—there is a reverse onus on the at-fault party, and that means that the guilty party must prove his innocence. This requirement presents pedestrian victims with the possibility to receive substantially higher compensation for their injuries.
