Don’t Be Prey Today. Get Even After a Pedestrian Accident in British Columbia
The Facts About Pedestrian Accidents
The facts are astounding:
- In 2011, approximately 2,300 people were injured in pedestrian accidents in British Columbia
- Approximately 15,000 people are killed each year across Canada in pedestrian accidents
But when you think about it, it’s not all that surprising. Drivers these days are always thinking about something else. Or talking on their cell phones. Or texting.
If they don’t see someone crossing the road—someone who has the right of way—then accidents WILL happen. It is the pedestrian, rather than the vehicle driver, who ends up paying the consequences.

What is Negligence, and What Does It Mean For My Case?
If you are a pedestrian hit by a motor vehicle and injured, you may have a claim for financial compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, associated costs, and even pain and suffering. However, you will need to prove negligence on the part of the driver. This means that the driver must have been at fault in the accident because he was doing something wrong.
This is easy to show in many cases, because the drivers were speeding, drunk, or doing something similarly stupid. It can be much more difficult in other cases, where the evidence is unclear or there were no witnesses.
That’s where McComb Witten comes in. We have the technical and technological resources to re-create the accident, hire expert witnesses, and put together a winning case for you. These things are expensive and complicated. Going to court against the insurance companies is war.
