Understanding Pedestrian Accident Law in Ontario

In Ontario, pedestrian accidents are governed by specific laws and regulations designed to protect pedestrians and ensure they receive fair treatment. Key aspects include:

  • Fault and Liability: Determining fault in pedestrian accidents can be complex. Ontario follows a comparative negligence system, meaning both the driver and the pedestrian can share responsibility. Our lawyers are adept at navigating these complexities to establish clear liability.
  • Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule (SABS): Regardless of fault, injured pedestrians are entitled to benefits under SABS, which cover medical expenses, rehabilitation, and income replacement. We help you navigate these benefits to ensure you receive the support you need.
  • Filing a Lawsuit: In cases where the accident results in serious injury or significant financial loss, filing a lawsuit may be necessary. Our team is experienced in pursuing legal action to secure additional compensation beyond what is provided by insurance.
