According to reports, this Toronto pedestrian accident occurred on May 7, 2012. The woman 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 woman who was so badly injured in this Toronto pedestrian accident. We hope that she is able to recover from the harm she 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
woman and her family. If such a lawsuit is filed, and if it is successful, it could lead to an award of damages that compensates the woman and her family for their medical expenses, their lost income and their pain and suffering.
The Toronto Police are seeking information from anyone that may have witnessed this Toronto Pedestrian Accident. Read the Toronto Police News Release here.
