Have you or a loved one been struck by a motor vehicle as a pedestrian? In a normal motor vehicle accident case involving an accident between two or more motor vehicles, the onus is normally on the party seeking compensation to prove the other party was negligent. However, where there are non-vehicles involved such as a pedestrian or cyclist, the onus is on the driver of the motor vehicle to prove to the courts that they were NOT negligent. This can be very difficult to prove. If you are injured in a pedestrian knockdown, you may be entitled to damages for pain and suffering, loss of income, housekeeping, attendant care and/or caregiver expenses.
