Every year in B.C., many pedestrians are injured as a result of being hit by motor vehicles. Crosswalks and other rights-of-ways are often the most dangerous spots for pedestrians due to distracted drivers who fail to notice walkers, joggers or skateboarders in the roadway.
Unfortunately, when cars hit pedestrians, the injuries are often serious.
Motorists owe a duty of care to drive in a safe and reasonable manner at all times. If you have been injured as a pedestrian as the result of the negligence of a motorist, you may be entitled to compensation.
Many people feel they may have been at fault for stepping out into the path of a motor vehicle; however these claims are far from straightforward and we would recommend obtaining a legal opinion.
