Like all accidents, pedestrian accidents happen when you least expect them. Although Nova Scotia is a beautiful and safe province, is not without its share of accidents, especially in metropolitan areas like Halifax. One of the most difficult parts of the law, including personal injury law, is educating the public.
For instance, many people don’t realize that pedestrian accidents cover a much broader scope of accidents than an accident that occurs at a crosswalk or street crossing between a vehicle and a crossing pedestrian. Accidents of this nature also include:
- Bicycling accidents
- Walking and Hiking trails
These are the more typical situations where our clients have been injured and are entitled to pursue a claim for compensation for injury and damages.
