Generally, pedestrians have the same rights as anyone involved in a car accident. Individuals who have been hit by a vehicle are entitled to make a claim against the at-fault driver’s insurance.
Extensive injuries, financial burden, and mental trauma are common issues that individuals face after an accident. As such, a victim or their family may wish to take legal action for damages after an accident.
Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is a significant safety concern in Ontario. Every year in Canada, more than 60,000 individuals are injured in impairment-related crashes. Driving under the influence can cause serious motor vehicle accidents and result in serious trauma, including brain injury, spinal cord damage, emotional trauma, and in serious cases, death.
No-fault insurance is a legal mandate that broadly determines how claims are handled by insurance companies. Despite the misleading name, insurance companies will always investigate an accident to determine who is at fault.
Income replacement benefits are available to victims whose accident-related injuries prevent them from working at all, or at the level they did prior to the accident.
Motor vehicle accidents can happen at any time. In the winter, slippery roads and poor visibility can increase the likelihood of an accident occurring. Winter motor vehicle accidents on snowy or icy roads can result in severe injuries, significant property damage, and regrettably, loss of life.
