Pedestrian Seriously Injured After Highway Accident

by | Thursday, March 19, 2015

On March 8, a serious car-pedestrian accident in Nova Scotia resulted in a portion of a major highway being shut down for several hours. The pedestrian accident took place on the Trans-Canada Highway, or Highway 105, in Cape Breton at 12:18 p.m. Motorists were told to avoid the area as there was no way to re-route traffic on the highway.

According to reports, Victoria County RCMP officers were on the scene of the accident in Cape Breton. Apparently, a small passenger car that was traveling eastbound on the highway had hit a female pedestrian. The pedestrian was rushed to Cape Breton Regional Hospital for treatment of serious injuries, and the car driver was uninjured. It is unclear what factors led to the collision or whether criminal charges were filed against the driver.

Following the accident, RCMP announced that the highway would remain closed while investigators reconstructed the events that had occurred. Drivers who were going to and from Cape Breton were advised to use Highway 4 while the investigation was underway.

A serious car accident can affect an injured victim in many different ways. While the victim is suffering from physical injuries, they might also be experiencing financial challenges from lost working days and unexpected medical expenses. Furthermore, car accident victims are often traumatized and suffer from a number of psychological difficulties after the incident. After a serious car accident, a lawyer may be able to help a victim to recover an appropriate amount of compensation for the full extent of their injuries.

I can't speak highly enough about the lawyers at Wagners who represented me for injuries from not one but two motor vehicle accidents. They were very professional and approachable. I was kept informed of all steps in the process and all of my inquiries were responded to and dealt with very quickly. The lawyers are knowledgeable and showed great empathy for what I was going through. I would recommend this firm to anyone!
