pedestrians don't always know the rules of the road. Helpforme does.

Pedestrian Accident

the greater the impact, the more help you'll need.

The injuries of a pedestrian who gets hit by a car are rarely minor. Generally, they’re catastrophic – from fractured shoulders to spinal cord and brain injuries. Medical bills, rehabilitation, loss of income and other expenses can be exorbitant. This gives insurers strong motivation to deny liability or, at the very least, attempt to delay settlement or place some of the fault on the pedestrian. That’s where we come in.

Jaywalking, talking on your cell and other issues that can be overcome

The general public doesn’t know all the rules of crossing the road. Where you can and can’t cross a street, the details surrounding the accident – from lighting to eyesight – can be key to proving a pedestrian was not at fault. Our team knows the rules.

ICBC may deny liability for many reasons. For instance, a lot of pedestrians take risks. They jaywalk. They run against a red light. Or they simply don’t pay attention. Regardless of how ICBC evaluates your situation, we know all the facts have to be considered. Behaviour needs to be taken in context, and each case has its own unique set of circumstances.

Helpforme lawyers know the importance of evidence.

With some of the province’s top engineering and investigative experts, Helpforme ensures all the facts are collected – accurately and irrefutably. With credible facts in hand, we then pore through laws, some little known, to comprehensively build your case.

The types of pedestrian accidents we've helped.

Intersections

Accidents involving pedestrians at intersections happen all too often. We’ll establish who is at fault and go after what you deserve.

Crosswalks

Crosswalks are meant to keep pedestrians safe, but negligent drivers make that impossible. We’re here to ensure you get the compensation you’re entitled to.

Aggressive driving

This is an umbrella term for speeding and other reckless behaviours. If you’ve been hurt, you should have a powerful team to pursue the financial settlement you deserve.

Vehicle backing

You shouldn’t pay for a driver’s negligence. When a vehicle backs up and hits you, our team of experts will build a strong case for you.

Off-road

A vehicle that careens off the road and into a pedestrian can cause catastrophic injuries. We help you get the resources and finances in place to regain your life.

"After my accident I was experiencing intense emotions and it was difficult for me to find resolutions or to assess things clearly. I got very stuck emotionally on doubts or disagreements I might be having with health care helpers or ICBC. Krista always kept in close contact. She was a sympathetic and careful listener who responded with a realistic assessment of each situation and then told me what I needed in each particular case and why, and what I could expect in the future. And she did this without making me feel that she was ever judging me or pushing me in any direction."
