Chilliwack Pedestrian Accidents


When pedestrians are involved in motor vehicle collisions, the consequences can be devastating. Regular community members can easily lose their lives after being struck by a negligent driver. They can also sustain many types of injuries, many of which could have lifelong physical, psychological, and economic repercussions.

In Chilliwack, pedestrian accident survivors frequently require hospitalization, intense physical rehabilitation regimens, psychological counseling, and even significant overhauls to their daily lives. Injuries sustained in Chilliwack pedestrian accidents commonly include:

  • Internal organ damage
  • Broken and fractured bones
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Amputations
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Facial and dental injuries
  • Friction wounds 
  • And more

Because of a driver’s carelessness, recklessness, distraction, inebriation, or other form of negligence, innocent, unsuspecting residents of Chilliwack can have their lives completely upended. This is especially true for catastrophically injured pedestrian accident survivors who can no longer participate in activities they previously enjoyed as a result of their newly acquired, disabling medical conditions. 

Catastrophically injured pedestrian accident lawyers could be entitled to a lump sum permanent impairment benefit from ICBC. The Crown corporation’s new “enhanced care” model of insurance coverage entitles anyone injured in a car crash to no-fault accident benefits. However, since this new insurance model took effect, injured survivors of pedestrian accidents are no longer able to pursue damages from the at-fault driver. Whereas injured victims of pedestrian accidents that occurred before May 1, 2021 have the right to sue the negligent driver that caused their injuries, ICBC’s new no-fault policy makes it impossible for people injured after that date to do so.

Sadly, many injured pedestrians who have been struck by motor vehicles are falling through the cracks of this newly imposed “enhanced care” model. Indeed, many victims of pedestrian accidents wind up getting no help at all from ICBC’s no-fault insurance. Unlike its name suggested, this new model often fails to deliver the necessary care and compensation desperately needed by the most vulnerable road-users who have been injured in collisions. To express your concerns over what this no-fault insurance system could mean for countless accident victims in the future, contact your MLA and ask them to repeal ICBC’s “enhanced care” model.

If your accident took place before May 1, 2021, our Chilliwack pedestrian accident lawyers may be able to help you file a civil claim against the negligent driver whose misconduct on the road led to your injury-causing collision. But no matter when your accident happened, our pedestrian accident lawyers serving Chilliwack may be able to offer you crucial assistance. To learn more, contact us today.
