Rights To Compensation Following a Pedestrian Accident In Ontario
As an Ontario personal injury lawyer, we are often asked whether an injured pedestrian has access to compensation following an accident. The answer is Yes. In Ontario, when a pedestrian is struck by a vehicle, they will often have at least two sources of compensation available through insurance. The first avenue of compensation, known as Statutory Accident Benefits, is available from an auto insurance policy providing coverage over the injured pedestrian. There are priority rules that determine which insurance company will be responsible for the Statutory Accident Benefits. In addition to the Accident Benefits, the injured pedestrian will likely be able to claim for additional compensation against the insurance policy for the vehicle that was involved in striking the pedestrian. There may be other sources of compensation and benefits available as well, depending on the facts and insurance coverages.
The process of applying for benefits and advancing claims following a pedestrian accident can be complex. There are deadlines that must be met, otherwise an injury victim may be barred from making certain claims. It is important to speak with an experienced pedestrian accident lawyer early, in order to make sure that you are not jeopardizing your rights.
