Ottawa Injury Lawyers | Pedestrian Accidents

Between 2004 and 2008, 1487 injuries, of which 181 were life-altering, were reported in Ottawa.  Thirty-two individuals were actually killed in vehicle-pedestrian accidents during this time period.

If you are ever injured in an Ottawa pedestrian accident, protect your rights by making smart choices at the scene of the accident.

DO:

  • Insist that the police attend the scene
  • Obtain the driver’s name, license plate number and insurance information
  • Get the medical attention you need
  • Call YOUR OWN insurance company to report the accident (No, it won’t affect your rates.)
  • Get advice from a personal injury lawyer.

DON’T:

  • Tell everyone at the scene that you’ll be fine.  The adrenaline is pumping.  You don’t know for sure.
  • Leave without witness information and the driver’s info.
  • Wait to contact a lawyer.  Witnesses vanish.  Memories fade.
