The recent weather conditions in Toronto may have something to due with the increase in pedestrian accidents. The frequency of Toronto pedestrian accidents increases with poor weather and poor lighting conditions. As such, many pedestrian accidents occur when it is raining and overcast, as well as during non-daylight hours.
Following a serious but non-fatal pedestrian accident, the immediate concern is your medical care and recovery. In fatal pedestrian accidents, the family is grieving. The aftermath of a serious pedestrian accident is no doubt a difficult time for those affected. While difficult, it is important to make the effort to consult with a Ontario personal injury lawyer. A personal injury lawyer can assist with far more than the filing of claims with insurance companies.

Many of these services are not covered by OHIP, so it is important to have an experienced personal injury lawyer to help you access funding for the services you will need in order to maximize your recovery.

This pedestrian accident in Whitchurch-Stouffville, raises important issues and questions about the rights of a victim to make insurance claims for losses following a hit-and-run accident. Many people incorrectly believe that, if a vehicle flees the scene and is never located or identified, their benefits are limited to statutory accident benefits. In fact, often following a hit and run accident, the victim may be entitled to compensation by making a claim for unidentified motorist coverage through their own insurance policy. This is completely different coverage from the accident benefits that are available to all accident victims. Unidentified motorist coverage is insurance that is in place in the event that someone is injured by a vehicle that leaves the scene and is never identified.
An experienced Ontario injury lawyer can help you pursue a claim for unidentified vehicles or other insurance beenefits, which may be available to you following a hit-and-run accident.
