Campbell River Pedestrian Accident Lawyers


No one should feel unsafe when crossing the road, taking their dog for a walk around town, or enjoying a leisurely stroll with friends and family members. Unfortunately, when negligent drivers violate the rules of the road, they put the lives of innocent Campbell River community members at risk, and pedestrians are the most vulnerable of all.

With no protection in the event of a collision, pedestrians who have been struck by a motor vehicle could easily lose their lives. They could also sustain serious injuries with far-reaching effects that impact the ways in which they work, socialize, and engage in the routine activities of everyday life.

In the days, weeks, and months following a pedestrian accident, it can be difficult to know which actions to take to start the process of healing and pursuing accountability. This can be especially challenging for Campbell River pedestrians who were injured in hit-and-run accidents.

Unfortunately, because of new changes implemented by ICBC, pedestrians who have been injured by negligent drivers could have even greater challenges getting the compensation they deserve. Under ICBC’s new “enhanced care” model of insurance coverage, people who have been injured in a pedestrian accident no longer have the right to sue the at-fault driver whose negligence caused their crash. Since this new system was introduced on May 1, 2021, everyone who has been hurt in a motor vehicle collision should be entitled to no-fault accident benefits. Injured pedestrians who have sustained catastrophic injuries could be eligible for a lump sum payment in addition to other benefits, but the amount is not likely to cover their total injury-related losses.

However, if you were injured in a collision that occurred before May 1, 2021 when these changes took effect, you might be eligible to sue the negligent driver whose wrongful actions resulted in your injuries. By working with our Campbell River pedestrian accident lawyers, you might be able to pursue damages that are both economic and non-economic in nature. These might include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Legal fees
  • Medical expenses
  • Medical equipment
  • Mobility devices
  • Prosthetics
  • Prescriptions
  • Attendant care
  • Physiotherapy
  • Psychotherapy
  • Prescriptions
  • Home modifications
  • Housekeeping services
  • Lost wages due to missed work
  • Reduced future earning capacity
  • And more

Our pedestrian accident lawyers serving Campbell River are passionate about helping injured members of the local community to get the compensation they need and deserve. If you need help completing your ICBC claim, our Campbell River pedestrian accident lawyers may be able to assist you.

The new “enhanced care” insurance model introduced by ICBC puts additional barriers between injured pedestrian accident survivors and the crucial support they desperately require. To voice your opinion over these sweeping changes at ICBC, contact your MLA and ask them to repeal the “enhanced care” insurance model.
