Our relationship with these experts will help you receive full and fair compensation.
STEP 4: Lawsuit & Discovery
Generally speaking, you have 2 years to file a lawsuit, if you are injured as a result of someone else’s negligence. However, this time limit may be significantly reduced depending on the particular facts of your case.
Once we review your case and gather facts and evidence, we will file the lawsuit on your behalf.
You may be required to attend an Examination for Discovery, whereby the Defence Lawyer is permitted to question you under oath. We will guide you through the process and thoroughly prepare you for the questions at Discovery.
Our Lawyers will be sitting beside you to ensure all questions are proper and relevant.
STEP 5: Settlement
Over 95% of injury cases are settled before Trial. We will only recommend settlement if it is in your best interest. Although the vast majority of cases are settled, we prepare every case like it is going to Trial.
If the insurance company does not make a fair and reasonable settlement offer, we are prepared to go to Trial. Our Lawyers are experienced and knowledgeable Trial Lawyers and are very familiar with the Trial process.
Our proven track record confirms you can expect professional service with excellent results.

Common Injuries Resulting From Pedestrian Accidents
In the unfortunate event of a pedestrian being struck by a vehicle, the likelihood of them sustaining a severe injury is significantly higher compared to the driver or passenger of the vehicle. Even low-speed collisions can lead to injuries that affect a person’s life permanently. At CLG Injury Law, we are here to assist individuals who have experienced:
- Head trauma (including injuries from bicycle helmet usage)
- Spinal cord and back injuries
- Neck and shoulder injuries
- Broken bones and fractures
- Orthopedic injuries
Pedestrian Safety Statistics
Understanding the risks and outcomes associated with pedestrian accidents is essential in promoting road safety. Pedestrians are among the most vulnerable road users, and the speed at which a vehicle is traveling plays a critical role in the severity of injuries and the chances of survival. In this context, we present important pedestrian safety statistics that shed light on the impact of speed on pedestrian accidents and the sobering figures related to child pedestrian incidents in Canada. These statistics serve as a stark reminder of the need for caution and vigilance on the road, both for pedestrians and drivers.
- According to data from AutoInsurance.org (2018), pedestrians have a 90% chance of survival in a crash when the vehicle is traveling at speeds of 30 km/h (19 mph) or less. However, this chance drops to 50% at higher speeds.
- For instance, a pedestrian struck at 32 km/h (20 mph) faces a 10% risk of fatality, while at 64 km/h (40 mph), the risk dramatically increases to 80% (Active Transportation Alliance, 2018).
- In 2020, Canada saw the tragic loss of 21 children between birth and 14 years old in pedestrian incidents. On average, approximately 1,000 child pedestrian injuries occur each year.
