The road can be a dangerous place for both drivers and pedestrians. Pedestrian accidents do happen and the consequences can be severe. Accidents can occur because drivers fail to see them or because they are driving in an unsafe or distracted manner. Some drivers fail to obey traffic signs or signals, fail to observe posted speed limits or adjust to weather and traffic conditions, fail to yield the right of way to pedestrians at marked crosswalks and driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
As an injured pedestrian, you are entitled to fair compensation. This can include payment for out-of-pocket expenses, compensation for lost wages and future earnings, payment for pain and suffering and compensation for the cost of future care. Many people fail to realize that ICBC provides coverage if you are hit and injured as a pedestrian.
