Port Moody Pedestrian Accident Lawyers


The actions of a total stranger can have wide-ranging, far-reaching consequences that impact the lives of others for years to come. Without even realizing what they are doing, drivers who operate their vehicles without a reasonable degree of caution could cause a collision that destroys lives, tears families apart, and causes numerous people lifetimes of pain and suffering.

According to information provided by the British Columbia Coroners Service, dozens of people lose their lives each year as the result of pedestrian accidents. Thousands more are injured as the result of negligent motorists’ unsafe driving.

The vulnerable road-users involved in local pedestrian accidents can sustain various types of injuries. These injuries can vary in severity from moderate – impacting their daily lives for weeks or months – to catastrophic. Catastrophic injuries could not only affect a pedestrian accident victim’s ability to continue working, but they could also make it difficult for injured survivors to carry out the regular functions of daily life independently. Owing to their vulnerability on the road, pedestrians who are struck by motor vehicles could become paralyzed, suffer sensory losses or the loss of limbs, sustain traumatic brain injuries, and other permanent medical conditions from which they never fully recover.

Under ICBC’s new “enhanced care” model of auto insurance, pedestrians who are catastrophically injured in a car crash should be entitled to a lump sum permanent impairment benefit. However, depending on the severity of the injuries sustained and the overall impact they have on an accident survivor’s quality of life, the lump sum payment amount may be insufficient to cover their total lifetime losses.

Unfortunately, when ICBC introduced this new insurance plan, the provincially-owned Crown corporation revoked accident victims’ rights to sue the driver responsible for causing their crash. On top of that, if an injured pedestrian accident survivor receives a settlement amount that does not fully replace their total losses, ICBC has made it more difficult to appeal their unfair decision.

ICBC’s no-fault, “enhanced care” system has already made life incredibly challenging for injured survivors of local pedestrian accidents and their families. It will only continue to do so, disproportionately impacting the province’s most vulnerable road-users. If you would like to voice your concerns over this new insurance model, contact your MLA.

If you were injured in a crash before this new system was implemented, our Port Moody pedestrian accident lawyers may be able to help you pursue the damages you are rightfully owed by filing a civil claim against the driver responsible for causing the collision. Therefore, if your pedestrian accident occurred before May 1, 2021, you might be entitled to additional compensation.

By working with our pedestrian accident lawyers serving Port Moody, you could receive crucial assistance completing and submitting your ICBC claim in order to maximize the settlement amount you receive. Our Port Moody pedestrian accident lawyers might also be able to fight on your behalf to help you recover the maximum amount of damages to which you should be entitled.
