Ottawa pedestrian accident lawyer Marc Quinn provides tips for keeping safe as pedestrians in Ottawa.
As Ottawa accident and injury lawyers, we handle many pedestrian accident cases every year. There are many ways to reduce your chances of being injured in an accident as a pedestrian. Each year, we receive an increased amount of calls during the spring and summer months from pedestrians injured in car and other accidents. With spring arriving, people tend to walk outside more and feel the freedom of good weather. With warmer weather, pedestrians are outside enjoying the weather and often don’t pay attention to motor vehicles.
There are many ways to reduce your chances of being injured in a car accident or bicycle accident such as walking only on cross walks or designed traffic light areas, looking both ways before crossing any street, cautiously proceeding and never assuming the driver will stop as he/she may be distracted and if walking at night, wearing reflective clothing.
The various news sources reporting about Ottawa events such as CBC news and CTV news report many accidents involving pedestrians each year and many of the accidents result in serious personal injuries and deaths. In most cases, the accidents were avoidable.
Our lawyers focus on personal injury cases. We have a team of dedicated personal injury lawyers who obtain compensation for accident victims and their families. If you or someone you care about has been injured in a pedestrian accident, please call us for a free consultation at 613-315-4878 or 613-563-1131.
