We live in a society where we are encouraged to walk, both for health and environmental reasons. And Ottawa is a great place to walk. Unfortunately, walking on downtown or even suburban streets can pose real risks.

In the Province of Ontario, approximately 15% of road-related deaths are due to pedestrian accidents. More than 14% of accidents which cause significant personal injury are pedestrian-related.

Pedestrians who are hurt due to the actions of car drivers, motorcyclists or cyclists have rights that they often do not know about. It is important to consult with a lawyer who is experienced in handling these kinds of claims to make sure that you and your family members are getting the best advice and guidance about what to do and when to do it.

At McNally Gervan we have represented many injured pedestrians and their families. We have helped them access needed insurance benefits and to get the compensation they deserve. As always, our goal is to get victims the support they need to get back on track and the compensation they deserve. Compensation for serious pedestrian accidents often includes damages for pain and suffering, compensation for past and future losses of income, and the recovery of past and ongoing medical and rehabilitation costs.

The lawyers at McNally Gervan LLP understand the system and are here to help accident victims get the support they need and the benefits they deserve. 

If you have a question or need assistance, our team of personal injury lawyers is here to help. We know every personal injury case is unique and we work hard to ensure that our clients are fairly compensated. We know it’s personal.
