Some Causes of Motor Vehicle vs. Pedestrian Accidents

Victims of pedestrian auto accidents, like the one depicted here, require the services of an experienced and knowledgeable pedestrian accident lawyer. If you have been injured by a motor vehicle in a marked or unmarked crosswalk call Joseph A. Nagy, Edmonton injury lawyer, for advice.

Motor vehicle vs. pedestrian accidents most commonly happen when one vehicle stops to let a pedestrian cross the street. A second driver going in the same direction is unable to see the pedestrian because the driver that is stopped has blocked the view of the pedestrian. The negligent driver is usually not paying attention to why the vehicle beside him stopped and drives through the marked crosswalk hitting the pedestrian.

Another common occurrence is when a driver looks in only one direction while exiting a parking lot or making a turn from a stopped position to enter a roadway. The driver fails to see the pedestrian and drives into the pedestrian.

Another common occurrence is when two vehicles collide at an intersection when one makes a left hand turn in front of the other. The collision causes one of the vehicles to hit a pedestrian walking in the crosswalk or on a sidewalk.

The Use of Highway and Rules of the Road Regulation defines a crosswalk as follows:

(d) “crosswalk” means

  1. that part of a roadway at an intersection included within the connection of the lateral line of the sidewalks on opposite sides of the highway measured from the curbs or, in the absence of curbs, from the edges of the roadway, or
  2. any part of a roadway at an intersection or elsewhere distinctly indicated for pedestrian crossing by signs or by lines or by other markings on the road surface;

I did quite a bit of research before deciding to go with Joe. He immediately took away my stress dealing with insurance companies and the games they play. With the weight off my shoulders, I was finally able to concentrate on recovering from my injuries.

Him and his team went above and beyond expectations providing me with lots of info, guidance, what to expect, always available, promptly replying, and much more. My case is not a simple case and I know I am in good hands with Joe. I know he will fight hard on my side regardless of how much work it may end up taking. He has the expertise to take my case to the very end and I trust him in every way to represent me in my best interest. The most admirable trait about Joe is that he’s absolutely caring. He’s a people person and understands what I’m going through. He’s passionate about helping people and I see that with the way he handles my case.

Best decision I ever made hiring Joe. Anyone who has him on their team can rest assured that they are well taken care of. I recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat!
