Vancouver Pedestrian Injury Lawyer
With nothing but the clothes on their back, pedestrians are vulnerable to serious injury when involved in a collision with a motor vehicle or motorcycle. According to statistics from ICBC, there are more fatal pedestrian accidents in British Columbia (BC) than any other province in the country. In 2013, more than 51 pedestrians were tragically killed in BC accidents. In the same year, more than 2,250 pedestrians were injured in BC accidents.
Pedestrian Injury Lawyers
Pedestrian accidents involving a motor vehicle happen for a number of reasons, but some of the more common causes are:
- Drivers who fail to give pedestrians the right of way
- Poorly lit sidewalks or intersections
- Drivers speeding excessively
- Drivers backing up without looking
- Faulty or mistimed traffic signals
- Drivers who text or talk on the phone
- Driving while intoxicated

Pedestrians injured as a result of someone else’s wrongful or reckless behavior may be able to pursue financial compensation from the at fault party. It’s not uncommon, however, for ICBC to partially blame pedestrians for an accident occurring.
