Pedestrian Accident Lawyer Serving Toronto

When you are hit by a car while walking, several thousand pounds of metal impact your body, which has no protection. The consequences can be severe and may include broken bones, head injuries and permanent disability.Even if you have no car insurance of your own, you can file a claim against the insurance company of the driver who injured you. It is important to speak to a lawyer before speaking to the driver’s insurance company so that the driver’s insurance company does not try to minimize your injuries or restrict your legitimate claims or legal rights, or their long-term effects. Talk to one of our lawyers in Toronto for a free consultation. We serve areas such as Oakville and Richmond Hill.
