Unfortunately, there are many pedestrian killed every year in Toronto. Despite efforts to increase safety for pedestrians, many motorists continue to drive aggressively in pedestrian areas. In Ontario, drivers owe a duty of care to pedestrians. When a pedestrian is struck by a car, there is a presumption of negligence against the driver of the motor vehicle. Nonetheless, in accidents involving serious injuries or death due to pedestrian and motor vehicle collisions, it is extremely important to have the advice and counsel of an Ontario personal injury lawyer. Early preservation of facts and witness accounts is critical to the issue of liability.
