Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians are everywhere. From metropolitan hubs to rural streets, pedestrians and pedestrian accidents span across Ontario. When you are crossing a street, whether at an intersection or in the middle of road, vehicles not keeping a proper lookout can put you in danger.

Pedestrians often experience serious injuries, as they have no protection when a vehicle knocks them down. Tragically, children are often victims of these types of accidents, usually while playing with their friends or chasing a ball into the street.

If you or a loved one is injured by a vehicle that failed to keep a proper lookout, call us at Diamond & Diamond™ for a free consultation.
