Pedestrian Accident Lawyers in Nepean, Grimsby and Timmins
In today’s modern world, we are constantly encouraged to multi-task. Stressed and distracted motorists get behind the wheel of their cars every second of every day. Add to that distraction alcohol or drug impairment, speeding, aggressive driving or not heeding traffic laws, and the roads can become a very dangerous place. It is no wonder that pedestrian accidents have been on the increase in Ontario.

At Barapp Law Firm and Associates, we have decades of experience representing pedestrian injury victims and will diligently pursue your rights to compensation.
How Negligence Factors In
Because of their lack of protection, a pedestrian may suffer catastrophic injuries resulting in years of medical interventions and costs. Proving negligence in a pedestrian accident can be complicated, particularly since a pedestrian may not have even seen what happened.
Accident claims involving pedestrians are greatly dependent on the duty of care that both the driver and pedestrian have exercised. Both must follow the rules of the road with reasonable care. But in many cases, it is the driver of the car who has acted negligently.
Driver negligence can take many forms
Insurance is Often Not Enough
Victims of pedestrian accidents are entitled to insurance benefits regardless of fault. Unfortunately, these benefits are often not enough. Injuries due to negligence can qualify an accident victim for additional benefits.
