What is “Collaborative Family Practice”?

I was walking in a crosswalk on a busy Hamilton Street when I was hit by a car. I do not own a car and I do not have automobile insurance. Am I entitled to compensation?

An injured pedestrian is entitled to the same compensation as if injured while in a car.  Even though you were a pedestrian, you can still claim Statutory Accident Benefits from your own insurance company and you can also sue the at fault driver for compensation. If you don’t have auto insurance, you can claim accident benefits from the automobile insurance company of the at fault driver. If the at fault driver is uninsured, you can make a claim to the Motor Vehicle Accident Claims fund which is administered by the provincial government.
