Crosswalks are designed to keep pedestrians safe, and you always assume that drivers are paying attention on the road. When a pedestrian is struck, the injuries are almost always severe:
Ambulance arrival and prompt medical attention is crucial in these situations. Victims may need life-saving surgery, helicopter transport, or other critical measures, and even then, some pedestrian accidents are fatal.
After a pedestrian accident, families are left wondering why an innocent person was hit by a dangerous motor vehicle. Costs of recovery and assessment can be enormous:
- Rehabilitative care
- Physical or occupational therapies
The Langley pedestrian accident lawyers at Stephens and Holman are here to stand up for the rights of pedestrians hurt by careless drivers.
If you’ve been injured while crossing the street, you may be entitled to collect substantial damages from ICBC on behalf of the negligent driver. Even if you are partially at fault, because of jaywalking or falling, for instance, you may still be entitled to some compensation.
If you recently lost a loved one who was struck by a vehicle, you may be entitled to collect wrongful death damages.
