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.

Hit and Run Accidents: Here Is What to Do Next?

Being involved in a motor vehicle accident can be very traumatic. Emotions like fear, worry and nervousness are often triggered the moment a collision occurs. This is a normal reaction, as many drivers have never been in these situations before. Pulling over to safety, safely exiting the vehicle to exchange information and speaking with other involved persons can be quite daunting.

Hit and Run Accidents Here Is What to Do NextWhat happens though, if you are hit and the driver flees the scene, leaving you in a state of peril? The first step is to stay calm. It is crucial to make an attempt to identify the vehicle that has impacted you. Try to catch the color, the make/model and most importantly, the license plate of the vehicle. In many situations, the vehicle drives away before you are able to have time to react. In that case, trying to remember as much as you can about the vehicle, if possible. It is crucial to call 911 as soon as this occurs. By memorializing the hit-and-run in a police report, you are doing yourself a favour if you decide to pursue legal proceedings. Also, urgent medical attention may be required, and that is your first priority.

Another useful tactic would be to ask nearby bystanders if they witnessed the accident. By having a third party corroborate your version of events, you are increasing your chances of identifying the vehicle that failed to remain at the scene.

As well, it my assist if the surrounding businesses and homes are checked for any available cctv camera recording of the incident.

After following the aforementioned steps, what is the course of action to take if the vehicle that hit you and the driver cannot be identified?

My experience with Grillo Barristers began two years prior with a different lawyer than that which ended up following through with my case. I had mixed feelings back then, but with Anthony taking over, everything changed. He was able to instill confidence, assurance, and positivity throughout my experience with Grillo. When I thought that I had no chance with my case, he was able to pull through and deliver much more than I had ever expected. I thank Anthony and Grillo sincerely for all of their efforts, dedication, and hard work on ensuring the best outcomes for me. I would recommend Grillo for anyone seeking legal advice and support.

After my wife was in a car accident a little over 2 weeks ago (not her fault), we felt that no one was addressing her actual needs to get better until we walked into Grillo Barristers law firm. The minute we walked in our needs seemed to be their only concern. The receptionist made every effort to make sure we were comfortable while we waited for our appointment. Rinya our Intake Coordinator was pleasant and attentive to my wife's concerns and her needs for recovery. If the rest of the team is that good, we should be in great hands.

My wife & I had the pleasure of working with Alexander Lee and Ikbir Khongura. They were excellent in research and information, They both were on time and ready.. very professional and determined to get the best results for us. They worked very hard and made sure we as clients were comfortable, happy and well taken care of! Most importantly they are fighters, they made sure our best interest were put first and our needs were met. A lot of lawyers don't really care, but they made sure justice was served! They did an amazing job in taking care of us and will be recommending their services!

From the moment Grillo Barristers took on my case, until I was able to come to my desired settlement, they have been nothing but amazing, caring and professional. I had an amazing team working on my case, and couldn't believe how well and timely my file was handled. My lawyer Anthony Andreopoulos, with the tremendous help of Justine and Zachary, constantly kept me updated with every action that was taken on the file and made me feel at ease knowing my case was in good hands. I couldn't have asked for a better firm to handle my file, so thank you guys so much for everything, I appreciate it more than you know!

Where do I begin?? I am not usually one to leave reviews on services but this one is definitely an exception. From start to finish, I felt incredibly comfortable having my claim in Grillo's hands. I felt as though the team was in complete control and I could just sit back and receive updates when necessary. With the utmost confident I can say that Grillo Barristers is the best personal injury law firm in Toronto. The process was quick, cheap and stress free. I must especially thank Lauren Sivitilli. Having very limited knowledge of lawsuits, Lauren was able to perfectly break the processes down for me and educate me on my claim. She was quick to answer emails addressing any concerns and always kept me up to date. I will definitely be recommending Grillo Barristers services to my family, friends and coworkers. Amazing!
