Penticton Pedestrian Accidents


Pedestrians have the right to feel safe in their own communities. No one should be afraid that they will lose their lives walking through a parking lot, strolling down the sidewalk, or crossing the street at a signalized intersection, marked crosswalk, or school crossing. Unfortunately, owing to the unsafe driving habits of negligent motorists, dozens of pedestrians are killed throughout the province each year.

When distracted drivers glance away from their windshields to check an incoming text, when reckless motorists exceed the posted speed limit and race through traffic lights, and when inebriated drivers decide to get behind the wheel, they put the lives of countless community members in jeopardy. The actions of negligent drivers could also cause innocent pedestrians to sustain permanent, catastrophic injuries.

The process of recovering from severe injuries can be exhausting and expensive. Not everyone is prepared for the economic burdens that often occur as the result of a serious injury. The financial stress, physical hardship, emotional trauma, and isolating nature of the recovery process often cause injured accident survivors to develop additional disabling conditions in the form of severe mental health issues. These might include depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), among others.

If the collision in which you were injured occurred before May 1, 2021, you may be entitled to pursue a civil claim against the negligent driver whose wrongful conduct caused your Penticton pedestrian accident to occur. By working with our Penticton pedestrian accident lawyers, eligible claimants might be able to recover damages they have already incurred, as well as those they might incur in the future as a result of their injuries.

If your accident occurred after May 1, 2021, the process of pursuing fair treatment and compensation could be more of a challenge. ICBC has recently instituted its new “enhanced care” model of auto insurance. In doing so, it has robbed injured accident victims of their rights to pursue lawsuits against the drivers at-fault for their collisions. The Crown corporation has also made it more difficult for denied claimants to appeal unfairly assessed ICBC claims.To express your concerns about this new no-fault system and the negative impact it will have on countless victims of motor vehicle collisions and their families, contact your MLA.
