Accidents involving pedestrians often result in severe injuries that can potentially lead to long-term and even permanent impairments. With injuries that can range from soft tissue damage to multiple fractures and traumatic brain injuries, pedestrians end up suffering the most serious injuries when it comes to these accidents. Victims of pedestrian accidents typically require medical rehabilitation that can potentially be lengthy and costly which can place undue stress on the victim and their family. The combination of physical and emotional trauma with lost wages and the inability to fulfill other obligations, the victims end up suffering in more ways than one.
Accidents involving pedestrians are governed by the same legislation as other motor vehicle accidents however with one major difference – the onus of proof is on the at-fault party which means it is usually the driver that has to prove their innocence which in turn results in higher amounts of compensation available to pedestrian accident victims.
