Abbotsford Pedestrian Accidents


Pedestrians are the most vulnerable road-users. In the blink of an eye, their lives can be turned completely upside down, and all because a negligent driver failed to consider the consequences of their actions.

In accordance with the British Columbia Motor Vehicle Act, drivers are required to fulfill a duty of care to all road-users. This includes pedestrians. If a driver fails to exercise reasonable caution behind the wheel, their wrongful actions could have profound impacts on the lives of innocent pedestrians and their families.

Negligent drivers who fail to uphold their legally mandated duty of care could cause fatal pedestrian accidents. Additionally, car crashes in Abbotsford can hospitalize pedestrians who have been struck by negligent drivers.

Even pedestrian accidents that take place at relatively low speeds can lead to many types of injuries. These frequently include:

  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Traumatic amputations
  • Internal organ damage
  • And more

If you were struck by a negligent motor vehicle operator before May 1 2021, you might be eligible to work with our Abbotsford pedestrian accident lawyers to pursue a civil claim against the at-fault driver. By working with our pedestrian accident lawyers serving Abbotsford, you might be able to recover the maximum amount of damages to which you are rightfully entitled.

Abbotsford pedestrians who have been injured in collisions after May 1, 2021 are subject to the new procedures implemented by ICBC after the Crown corporation introduced its so-called “enhanced care” model of insurance coverage. Under this newly introduced system, injured car crash survivors are no longer entitled to pursue civil claims against the responsible party. Additionally, their options for appealing unfairly denied ICBC claims and unfairly low settlement amounts have been drastically reduced. Instead, all parties who have been injured in motor vehicle collisions could be eligible for no-fault accident benefits, regardless of who was responsible for causing the pedestrian accident to occur. Injured pedestrians no longer have any recourse to fight for fair treatment and compensation, and are often subjected to long wait times for necessary medical care and financial support. To voice your concerns about ICBC’s new “enhanced care” insurance model, contact your MLA.
