Kitchener Car Accident Lawyer


Car accidents can happen when you least expect them. Out of nowhere, commuters on their way to work, parents picking up kids at school, students driving to campus, and other community members going about their daily routines can be the victims of negligent driver’s wrongful actions behind the wheel. In an instant, lives can be lost and severe, catastrophic injuries can be sustained. 

In Kitchener, and indeed throughout the province of Ontario, one of the most deadly forms of negligence on the road is distracted driving. In fact, in recent years, distracted driving has overtaken inebriated driving as the leading cause of fatalities on Ontario’s highways and roads.

Drivers who take their focus off the road– even for the briefest of moments– could cause other road-users to endure lifetimes of grief, pain, emotional distress, and financial insecurity. When drivers turn their heads away from the road to check a text message notification, eat take-out while their vehicle is in motion, fiddle with the radio station, engage in heated conversation with passengers, or try to perform any number of other tasks while they driving, they likely do not consider the potentially devastating consequences of their actions. This lack of consideration for the safety of others is both dangerous and illegal. 

In accordance with the province’s Highway Traffic Act, Ontarians who operate motor vehicles have a legal obligation to provide other road-users with a duty of care. If a driver engages in any kind of illegal behaviour behind the wheel of their vehicle and, as a result of their wrongful actions, an injury-causing accident ensues, the at-fault driver might be considered negligent. That means they might be held responsible for economic and non-economic damages incurred by injured car accident victims.

Although nearly half of Canadians have admitted to using their phones while operating their vehicles, distracted driving is not the only form of negligence that could endanger the lives of other road-users. Traffic laws exist to reduce the risk of injurious or fatal collisions. A violation of any of these rules could jeopardize road-users’ physical health, emotional well-being, and financial stability. Therefore, if the violation of any traffic law leads to a serious collision, the driver responsible for causing the crash could be considered negligent. In Kitchener, common forms of driver negligence that often lead to injury-causing motor vehicle collisions include:
