Canadian Motor Vehicle Traffic Collision Statistics reveal that over the years there has been a high rate of pedestrian accidents in the province of Ontario. This could be the result of negligent or careless driving causing catastrophic injuries and lifelong challenges. If you or a family member has been involved in a pedestrian accident, you have the right to receive compensation for your pain and suffering.
Despite their lack of involvement in the investigation and overall analysis of the scene, many victims report that representatives from insurance companies attempt to close a pedestrian claim as soon as possible. In comparison to motor vehicle accidents, drivers who are involved in Ontario pedestrian accidents are addressed differently according to Section 193(1) of the Highway Traffic Act. In summary, this Act mandates that “the onus of proof that the loss or damage did not arise through the negligence or improper conduct of the owner, driver, lessee or operator of the motor vehicle is upon the owner, driver, lessee or operative of the motor vehicle.”
