The complexities of a pedestrian injury need to be understood before the claim is made at your concerned insurance company. A no fault insurance claim can be made, to the insurance company which bears your car insurance. The insurance can be claimed even though your car is not involved in this accident. In case, if your access is limited to your car insurance, then the claim can be made on the vehicle that injured you. Motor Vehicle Accident Funds is available for those living in Canada through the Ontario Government. This claim can be made if you are unfortunately involved in a hit and run case by an unidentified driver who escaped after hitting you.

There is another category called the Tort claims, where the driver of the car is held responsible for the accident. The claim is made liable for the damages made by the driver and compensation for your losses. The laws in Ontario were made strict to ensure that the drivers could drive responsibly without hitting anyone. The driver needs to furnish proofs showing that he/she is not driving negligently while the accident has happened. The driver is made responsible for the loss and will be asked to compensate for damage due to the accident leading to pain, cost of health care, loss of income and expenses of housekeeping.
