As a pedestrian, you are at your most vulnerable whenever you cross the street or walk through a parking lot. Unfortunately, many drivers do not keep a lookout for pedestrians when driving through crosswalks, and pedestrian accidents are not uncommon.
If you have been injured as a pedestrian, you may have a ICBC claim against the driver and owner of the vehicle who hit you, even if you may not have been properly following the rules of the road as they apply to pedestrians.
Chris Dyson represents people who have been injured as pedestrians as a result of the negligence of drivers and other road users. He has extensive experience resolving these claims, including cases of J-walking, hit-and-run, and roadside assault. If you have been injured as a pedestrian, even if the accident is a hit-and-run, you can still successfully sue.
Chris is committed to helping injured people obtain full compensation and ensure your rights are protected.
ICBC denied liability for this accident. The plaintiff was a pedestrian in a crosswalk when she was struck by a vehicle owned and operated by the defendants.
The Court ruled that the defendant driver was negligent in striking the plaintiff, as the plaintiff would have been visible had the driver exercised due care and attention. No contributory negligence was established. The accident caused orthopaedic injuries to the plaintiff's femur and wrist, both of which healed. She was awarded the sum of $462,912 following Chris' arguments at trial.
