Whistler Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

The ICBC reports that the number of pedestrians injured in accidents almost doubles from October to January– as the weather gets colder and the days shorter. Every year, Whistler is home to fatal accidents between vehicles and pedestrians, despite well-lit pedestrian walkways in Village Stroll and the Valley Trail. Wet weather, poor visibility and distracted driving all contribute to pedestrian knockdowns, which often give rise to life-shattering injuries.

If you were hit by a vehicle, you might be entitled to seek compensation for your injuries, medical treatments and associated expenses. Hiring an experienced personal injury law firm to handle your claim can increase the size of your potential settlement. Our Preszler team of Whistler pedestrian accident lawyers won’t let the ICBC strong-arm you into accepting less than you deserve.

Call our office today to arrange an initial legal consultation, free of charge. Our dedicated legal team will ensure all documents are filed on time, conduct thorough investigations, and bring in expert witnesses to pinpoint liability and assign the proper value of your injury claim.

Common causes of pedestrian accidents 

The ICBC cautions drivers to be alert for pedestrians, especially near bus stops, crosswalks and intersections. Motorists are expected to follow traffic laws, yield when necessary and exercise reasonable care when behind the wheel. If they are not careful and serious injury results, they may be found negligent.

The following are some of the leading factors that contribute to pedestrian crashes and injuries:

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Disobeying traffic laws
  • Alcohol use
  • Low visibility
  • Failure to yield at crosswalks
  • Poor weather conditions

Compensation available to injured pedestrians 

The law affords protection to people in BC who have been wrongfully injured due to the negligence or reckless actions of another. Our Whistler pedestrian accident lawyers know the tactics used by ICBC and other insurers to undermine the rights of the injured. It is our mission to ensure your claim is paid in full, and that you are fairly compensated for all past, current and future damages, including:

  • Lost wages
  • Reduced capacity to earn
  • Physical therapy and other rehabilitation costs
  • Loss of housekeeping benefits
  • Pain and suffering
  • Related out-of-pocket expenses

Rest assured that we offer our legal services on contingency. This means you do not have to pay anything unless we settle or win your pedestrian accident case.
