Pedestrian Accidents

The simple act of crossing the street can become a nightmare for pedestrians hit by cars. More than 4000 Ontario pedestrians are injured by cars in a typical year, and there are more than 100 pedestrian deaths in the province during that same span.

Many of these dangerous mishaps occur in the Greater Hamilton and South Western Ontario Area.

Pedestrians are in a very vulnerable position when struck by cars and other motor vehicles, and pedestrian accidents commonly result in serious medical conditions like broken bones, head injuries, spinal cord injuries, torn ligaments, and nagging neck and back injuries.

The struggle to recover from a pedestrian accident can be a very painful process that takes its toll upon the injury victim’s quality of life, income earning potential, and ability to function as a domestic care provider. The effect of these combined stresses can often leave injury victims feeling despondent and unable to find a clear way out of physical, emotional and financial turmoil.

At Mackesy Smye, we deliver the advice and the representation you need to regain a sense of control over your life. If you are a pedestrian who has been injured in a car crash or if there has been a pedestrian fatality in your family, our personal injury lawyers have the expertise to ensure that you receive the financial compensation that you deserve. Our law firm will work to obtain these results, and we ask for no fees until your case is resolved.

Our accident lawyers can help with cases of pedestrian accident.

After carefully examining your case, we will recommend an approach to advance your claim. Depending upon the specific circumstances, your claim may include compensation for lost income, pain and suffering, in addition to funds for medical rehabilitation care (both current and anticipated, as in the case of future therapy and/or home care).

Even if you are At Fault or the At Fault driver cannot be identified (as in a hit and run), our lawyers have the skills, experience and knowledge to obtain appropriate compensation.

Our team of personal injury specialists includes some of the most respected pedestrian accident lawyers in the country. We help to make certain that Ontario’s personal injury laws protect you and your family.
