Prince George Pedestrian Accidents


As seasons change and visibility decreases, pedestrian accidents in British Columbia skyrocket. When the days get shorter, more pedestrians in Prince George face a much greater risk of injuries and fatalities. Indeed, between the months of October and January, fatal pedestrian accidents in BC increase by 54%.

Most pedestrian accidents occur at marked crosswalks and signalized intersections when people who legally have the right of way are struck by negligent drivers. But despite the fact that the majority of collisions involving pedestrians happen at intersections and  in the autumn and winter months, the truth is, they can occur anywhere, at any time of year.

In the days, weeks, months, and even years after a serious pedestrian accident, people who have been injured could face legitimate struggles while trying to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives. Pedestrian accidents caused by negligent drivers frequently force injured crash victims to try coping with disabling, newly acquired medical conditions, emotional and psychological trauma, and costly expenses for necessary care and lifestyle adjustments. Recovering from injuries sustained in a Prince George pedestrian accident can be more than physically debilitating; it can be extremely expensive, too.

Many injured pedestrian accident survivors are unable to continue performing the duties of their jobs as a result of their involvement in the collision. Many also become ineligible for career advancement opportunities or promotions in their fields because their injuries make it impossible to carry out the tasks required. In these unfortunate situations, pedestrian accident victims could find themselves struggling to keep up with injury-related costs at a time when they can least afford to do so. Some of the injury-related costs often incurred by the survivors of pedestrian accidents in Prince George include:

  • Medical equipment
  • Mobility devices
  • Prosthetics
  • Attendant care
  • Physiotherapy
  • Psychological counseling
  • Prescriptions
  • Home modifications to accommodate new disabilities
  • Housekeeping services
  • Mileage to and from medical appointments
  • Other medical expenses
  • And more

By working with our Prince George pedestrian accident lawyers, residents of the local community who were struck by negligent motorists before May 1, 2021 may be able to sue the at-fault driver whose misconduct on the road caused the crash. Our pedestrian accident lawyers serving Prince George have experience helping injured survivors of collisions in the community in their pursuits of accountability, fair compensation, and justice.

A new, no-fault insurance model recently introduced by ICBC has made it more difficult for injured survivors of motor vehicle collisions to access the care and compensation they desperately need. The so-called “enhanced care” auto insurance model imposed by ICBC has taken away accident victims’ rights to sue the at-fault driver whose negligence resulted in their injury-causing crash. What’s more, if an injured pedestrian’s ICBC claim is denied, the Crown corporation has made it more difficult than ever to appeal the unfair decision.

Many injured victims of motor vehicle collisions are already struggling more than they need to because of these recent changes implemented by ICBC. If you were injured in a collision after this new policy took effect on May 1, 2021 and are concerned about what it could mean for you and your family’s financial recovery, contact your MLA.
