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. Experienced personal injury lawyers will likely be familiar with the injuries sustained and may be able to provide guidance with respect to available treatment. An experienced personal injury lawyer will also be able to assemble a support team that will compliment the medical care you are receiving through the hospital, which may include occupational therapists, case managers, physiotherapists, speach patholagists, psychologists and other needed treatment providers. 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.
