Helping Pedestrians Explore Their Legal Rights After An Accident
A new law in Ontario requires drivers to stop at pedestrian crosswalks until the pedestrian is completely off the road. This law is designed to protect pedestrians while crossing the street. However, pedestrian accidents still happen throughout Toronto.
At Klaiman Edmonds LLP, we protect victims injured in pedestrian accidents. We have represented victims injured while walking in designated crosswalks as well as when jaywalking. Regardless of where the accident happened, we will work hard to protect your rights and your future.
Determining How The Accident Happened
You can suffer serious injuries if you are hit by a vehicle, motorcycle or even a bicycle. These injuries can lead to lifelong suffering and costly medical bills. Our lawyers will help you cope with your injuries and assist with suing the party responsible for your injuries.

It is difficult to get a clear picture of what happened after a pedestrian accident. Conflicting versions of the incident can make it hard to pursue a claim. That is why we diligently prepare by investigating the scene of the accident, getting an accident reconstruction report and talking to witnesses to get an accurate picture of what happened leading up to the accident.
The Physical And Psychological Trauma After An Accident
Pedestrians can suffer all types of injuries, including head injuries, concussions, shoulder injuries, broken bones, back injuries and soft tissue injuries. In addition to the physical pain after an accident, victims often suffer from the psychological trauma of being hit by a vehicle.
We know how your life is impacted after being injured, including the emotional and psychological issues you can face. Our goal is to help you cope with your injuries and become whole again. That is why we will work with the right professionals to get you the attention and care you require.
