What Is a Pedestrian Accident?

A pedestrian accident is when a vehicle hits a person on the road who is not in a car. Pedestrians, by this definition, can include individuals on the street who were cycling, jogging, walking, standing, sitting and more. Pedestrian accidents can occur on public and private roads, walkaways, intersections, parking lots, and other areas. 


Many types of behaviours by the driver can result in a pedestrian accident and cause the latter to be entitled to compensation, such as:

  • Reckless driving

  • Drunk driving

  • Speeding

  • Not being cautious of pedestrians

  • And more

When to File a Claim?

In pedestrian accident cases, the driver's insurance company is supposed to fulfil the financial compensation. Many insurance companies might try to contact the injured pedestrian, but we recommend speaking to them only with the assistance of a lawyer. You can consider filing a claim, if:

  • You've been injured as a pedestrian by a driver that was engaging in reckless, negligent, and drunk driving.

  • You've been injured as a pedestrian by a driver that didn't signal.

  • You've been injured as a pedestrian on a road that has dangerous conditions.

  • You've been injured as a pedestrian on the road due to bad weather.

In many cases of pedestrian accidents, the facts of the matter might not be immediately apparent. The scenarios listed above are only some that could occur. If you've been hit on the road due to someone else's negligence, it is best first to get immediate medical attention and then call our pedestrian accident lawyers in Calgary. Generally, pedestrians must file the claim within two years of the accident occurring.

Hit & Runs

As we've mentioned above, the insurance company of the driver is responsible for the payout. However, in some cases, the driver may either not be insured or even flee the scene. We will try our hardest to find the driver to get the compensation you deserve. When that is not possible, or if the driver is not insured, you might be able to receive financial support through Alberta's Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Fund.  


If you or anyone you know has been hit by a vehicle as a pedestrian, we recommend contacting our pedestrian accident lawyers in Calgary as soon as possible. We will undertake legal action on your behalf and defend your rights.
