Pedestrian Accident Lawyer Edmonton

Few things compare to the enjoyment of taking a stroll around the downtown area or your neighborhood. Consequently, many individuals enjoy walking Edmonton’s streets and thoroughfares. Not only is this good exercise, but they get to enjoy the city’s different sights and sounds more intensely than when they’re driving. They often feel safe while using the city’s sidewalks and walkways. However, that sense of enjoyment could be short-lived if they get struck by a moving vehicle.

Even if we are careful about checking our surroundings, obeying traffic signals, and using marked crosswalks whenever possible, we know there is always a risk of serious injury when sharing the roadways with motor vehicles traveling at high speeds. If a person gets struck by a vehicle moving at high speed, they could suffer catastrophic or even fatal injuries. If you or a loved one was injured as a pedestrian, a BPCAB Personal Injury Lawyer can help.

    Pedestrian Accident Causes

    Every year, hundreds of Canadians perish while thousands of others are injured in pedestrian-vehicle accidents. The causes of these accidents often vary and you should be aware of the risk of them when you’re out walking in the city. While there are many reasons that pedestrian accidents occur, the most common ones include:

    What are the most common Injuries sustained in a Pedestrian Accident?

    A pedestrian’s lack of protection coupled with the size, speed, and weight of a moving vehicle can quickly spell disaster for the person on foot. Pedestrians rarely walk away from accidents with only minor injuries; most serious, catastrophic, or fatal. The most common injuries we’ve seen at BPCAB Law in pedestrian accident cases include:

    Compensation for Pedestrian Accident Injuries

    Compensation for injuries in a pedestrian accident comes down to what is known as “damages” or the cost of your injuries from an emotional, financial, mental, and physical perspective. Essentially, damages mean the money you could be entitled to for the physical harm you’ve suffered. In the case of pedestrian accidents, these are called compensatory damages and are intended to put the injury victim back in a position where they would’ve been had they not gotten injured while traveling on foot.

    On the other hand, non-compensatory damages aren’t related to any type of loss. They are typically awarded in cases where the courts feel that the defendant’s behavior was especially egregious. These are categorized as exemplary or punitive damages and are intended to punish the defendant for their behavior. Additionally, if no monetary damages are awarded but the plaintiff’s rights have been violated, the court may award nominal damages instead.

    What is my Pedestrian Accident Claim worth?

    In personal injury cases handled by BPCAB Law, monetary damages are awarded to the injured party (plaintiff) by the opposing party (defendant) or their insurer. Monetary damages in a pedestrian accident case often include reimbursement for:

    Non-compensatory or non-economic damages usually include emotional distress, loss of enjoyment, and pain and suffering. The most common way settlements in personal injury cases are calculated is by adding up all compensatory damages and multiplying that number by 1.5 up to 5 times based on the severity of the plaintiff’s injuries and their suffering in the matter.
