Pedestrian Collisions

Drivers have a duty of care to ensure they are operating their vehicles safely, within the law, and that they are not causing danger or harm to any other parties. On the other hand, pedestrians also have a duty to ensure they are interacting safely with vehicles, and entering roadways in a legal way. When a driver breaches their duty of care and a serious injury results, that driver (and their insurance company) is responsible for paying compensation for the injuries that have been suffered.

When a driver is found at-fault for a pedestrian injury, their insurance company is ordered to make a payment. While this may seem straightforward and fair, the process can be very complicated, and unfair to the parties who have suffered serious injuries.
