Drivers in Toronto need to be aware and attentive to people who are out walking. Toronto has an abundance of pedestrian traffic and motorists are expected to provide pedestrians with courtesy and the right-of-way. Unfortunately, something went very wrong this week, as a man in his 40's was reportedly struck by a truck near Yonge and Front streets in Toronto.
According to reports, this Toronto pedestrian accident occurred on February 10, 2012. The man was reportedly seriously injured, and police were investigating the situation and attempting to identify a specific cause for the crash.
We would like to offer our thoughts and our support for the man who was so badly injured in this Toronto pedestrian accident. We hope that he is able to recover from the harm he has suffered quickly and fully.
In addition, this crash will now become part of the overall statistics regarding Toronto Pedestrian Accidents. Sadly, Toronto pedestrian accidents are a frequent occurrence. Most often, these accidents are the result of distracted drivers. Clearly, more information would be necessary in order to assign fault for this Toronto pedestrian accident. However, if the driver is found to be at fault, it could lead to the filing of a Ontario personal injury lawsuit for the injured man and his family. If such a lawsuit is filed, and if it is successful, it could lead to an award of damages that compensates the man and his family for their medical expenses, their lost income and their pain and suffering.
