Pedestrian Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyer Toronto
When a motor vehicle is involved in an accident with a pedestrian or cyclist there are often serious, and sometimes fatal, consequences.
Pedestrians that have been injured by the negligence of a motorist have a right to seek compensation from the motorist for their pain and suffering, loss of income, and various expenses arising from these injuries. Furthermore, injured pedestrians have a right to receive Statutory Accident Benefits to help pay for necessary rehabilitation and medical treatment.
In motor vehicle accidents involving pedestrians or cyclists, the determination of fault requires an examination of a multitude of factors. In general, the laws of Ontario place a reverse onus on the motorist to prove that they were not negligent for striking a pedestrian. These situations, however, can be very complex and require a great deal of expertise to navigate effectively.
