Richmond Pedestrian Accident Lawyers


Members of the local community can lose their lives in tragic, violent, and preventable pedestrian accidents. Employees who choose to commute to work on foot, pet-owners taking their dogs for walks, families enjoying an evening stroll around their neighbourhood, and other pedestrians can lose their lives as the result of a negligent driver’s negligence actions.

In Richmond, motor vehicle operators have important responsibilities when it comes to pedestrian safety. They are required by law to behave in a reasonably cautious manner on the road and comply with local traffic laws. By obeying the rules, responsible drivers can help reduce the risk of fatal collisions with vulnerable road-users, like pedestrians.

Unfortunately, many drivers neglect the duties of care they owe to pedestrians. They might race through signalized intersections to beat a traffic light before it turns red, ignore stop signs and marked crosswalks, get behind the wheel while inebriated, or indulge in any number of distractions behind the wheel. In the time it takes a driver to glance away from their windshield to check a notification on their cell phone, innocent community members can be killed or permanently injured.

Pedestrians involved in collisions caused by negligent drivers usually sustain several types of injuries. Depending on the severity of the injuries they have sustained, survivors of pedestrian accidents in Richmond could require prolonged periods of hospitalization, physical rehabilitation, and time away from work. As a result, their physical hardships are often compounded with financial worries.

The process of recovering from serious injuries can be dispiriting, demoralizing, and lonely. With so much physical pain, financial anxiety, and emotional trauma, injured survivors of pedestrian accidents often develop serious mental health issues that can be disabling in their own right. Conditions developed by injured pedestrian accident victims often include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Alcohol abuse disorder
  • Insomnia
  • Other sleep disorders
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • And more

By working with our Richmond pedestrian accident lawyers, members of the local community who were injured before May 1, 2021 might be able to sue the negligent driver whose wrongful conduct caused their collision. Our pedestrian accident lawyers serving Richmond fight on behalf of the clients we represent. If you are eligible to pursue a civil claim, our Richmond pedestrian accident lawyers may be able to help you recover the compensation you deserve.

If your pedestrian accident occurred after May 1, 2021, the process of pursuing accountability, timely medical treatment, and fair compensation could be more challenging because of ICBC’s new “enhanced care” insurance model. Under this new system, injured survivors of motor vehicle collisions are no longer entitled to sue the at-fault driver whose negligence caused the accident. Furthermore, if ICBC provides an injured accident survivor with an unfairly low settlement amount (or denies their claim outright), it is now more difficult than ever to appeal the decision. If you believe this new no-fault accident model is unfair to injured accident survivors, contact your MLA.
