PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS

According to records obtained from ICBC, each year in British Columbia an average of 2,400 pedestrians are injured annually with an average of 58 of those incidents resulting in a fatality. Despite having a legal system in place that is designed to protect residents of the province who become injured in these accidents, countless people wrongfully assume that they have no legal recourse against the at-fault driver simply because they were struck as a pedestrian and were not inside of a motor vehicle at the time of the accident.

In cases where pedestrian is deemed to be partially at fault for the accident, they may have certain entitlements to compensation for things like medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering through the automobile driver’s insurance policy.

When the pain and stress of the injuries sustained in the accident are compounded by the complicated, confusing and intimidating process of filing a personal injury claim in British Columbia, people tend to get overwhelmed which further delays their access to much needed medical treatment and rehabilitation.

The difference between knowing and not knowing your rights can mean having immediate access to treatment or being buried under confusing paperwork thus delaying your recovery and return to your pre-accident activities. An experienced personal injury lawyer can successfully navigate the system and represent you against the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC) in order to investigate the facts, get to the truth and ensure that you receive maximum compensation for your injuries.

One of the key components of a successful personal injury case is the evidence – so it is important to gather and preserve as much information as possible. The following steps must be taken as soon as possible after receiving medical attention:

  1. Get the insurance information as well as the contact information of the parties involved as well as any potential witnesses.
  2. Contact the police and file a report, make sure to receive at least 2 copies for your records.
  3. Take photographs of the accident area, your injuries, and anything else that you feel may be relevant to your case such as the conditions of the tires of the vehicle that hit you, the road conditions of the accident location, etc.
