There’s an article in today’s Vancouver Sun that serves as a stark reminder of the dangers faced by pedestrians every day in the Lower Mainland.

The report is on a pedestrian who was struck and injured on the Trans-Canada Highway in Abbotsford yesterday.

This 48-year-old woman was taken to hospital after suffering a number of broken bones. The good news is it looks like she’ll pull through.

You see, she’s one of the lucky ones.

Because, on average, nine pedestrians are killed in Vancouver each year. It’s a tragic figure. And a reminder of just how dangerous the streets are for pedestrians.

Getting hit by a car can be devastating. And the road to recovery can be long and painful for an injured pedestrian.

That’s if you recover.

I’ve seen many situations where injured pedestrians have been unable to return to work, enjoy their hobbies or even do something as simple as picking up their children.

Their lives have been changed forever.

That’s why we’re committed to getting injured pedestrians the compensation they deserve.

Because if you’ve been hit by a car which crossing the street you probably have medical expenses to deal with. And you’re probably unable to work and pay your bills.

Money is a pure substitute for your health. But financial compensation is there to help make your life is as comfortable as possible after an accident.

The cold hard truth is that a big insurance company cares more about their bottom line than they do about you.

That means pedestrians like the poor lady who was struck in Abbotsford yesterday are going to have to fight tooth and nail to get the compensation they deserve.

At McComb Witten we’re here to guide you through the process of your pedestrian accident claim and to get you fairly compensated.
