Kelowna Pedestrian Accident Lawyer


Pedestrian accidents typically cause serious, catastrophic, or fatal injuries. Far too many pedestrians are injured or killed in British Columbia each year. On average, seven pedestrians are injured every single day and at least one pedestrian is killed each week in the province, according to the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC).

Victims or their families will want to look into all possible resources for compensation after a serious accident. To discuss your legal options with a pedestrian accident lawyer in Kelowna, you are welcomed to contact Preszler Injury Lawyers and request a free consult: 1-844-373-8202.

How do I pursue compensation after a pedestrian accident?

There are several recovery options that might be available after a pedestrian accident. Most pedestrians are entitled to accident benefits, including:

However, these benefits are not always enough. In order to receive full and fair compensation, you generally must file a third-party liability claim against the driver who hit you.

In either case, our firm can help protect your rights and ensure you receive full compensation. Our qualified and caring team at Preszler Injury Lawyers has helped thousands of injured accident victims over the past 55 years. Our results speak for themselves. Call us today at 1-844-373-8202 for a free consultation.

How do I file a third party claim?

To be eligible to recover full compensation for a pedestrian accident in Kelowna, you must be able to prove the driver was behaving negligently at the time of the accident.

Gathering evidence in a pedestrian accident requires an in-depth investigation and knowledge of accident law. Our team will launch a full investigation into the causes of your accident in order to determine fault.

If our investigation finds negligence on behalf of the driver, we will investigate your injuries and losses fully in order to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.

Do I need a lawyer to help with my pedestrian accident case?

While you are legally entitled to file a claim on your own, it is best to have a legal professional assist you to ensure your rights are protected and that all matters are handled appropriately and in a timely manner.

The damages involved in pedestrian accidents can be high. ICBC or the other driver will likely try to pay less when possible. Without a lawyer advocating on your behalf, your settlement may be substantially less.

There are many important aspects of a pedestrian case that can be difficult or confusing for victims to manage, especially when they are dealing with physical and emotional issues from the accident. Preszler Injury Lawyers can facilitate your claim and give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing we are protecting your best interests while you focus on healing.

When you work with us, we will handle all the legal details including:

  • Collecting evidence;
  • Ensuring all claim paperwork is accurate;
  • Reviewing settlement offers for fairness; and,
  • Fighting for your rights in court if we cannot arrange a fair settlement.

Is there a time limit for filing a pedestrian accident claim?

You generally have only two years from the date of the accident to formally file your claim. There are much shorter notice periods if your claim is against a municipality. Any claims you file after that point may be barred.

Note: Even though you have two years to file a claim, the sooner you take your case to a lawyer, the better. This will give your lawyer adequate time to compile evidence and prepare your case.
