Negligence on Behalf of Another Driver

With the advent of cell phones and countless other distractions, careless and reckless driving is more prevalent than ever. If you or a loved one was injured or killed due to the actions of another motorist, you might be entitled to pursue damages.

Call our team at Preszler Injury Lawyers today at 1-800-JUSTICE for a free initial consultation regarding your case.

Negligence Knows Many Forms

We are living in a time of unprecedented distraction, and too often, the need to be doing everything all the time creates extremely unsafe conditions for drivers who do all that they can to avoid collisions. In the digital age, the number of actions that could qualify as negligence has grown, and they include:

  • Texting while driving
  • Making a phone call while driving
  • Speeding
  • Failing to signal when changing lanes
  • Changing lanes without checking for other vehicles
  • Following too closely/tailgating
  • Using the car’s entertainment system
  • Averting eyes from the road for any reason

Distracted driving contributed to an estimated 21% of fatal collisions in the country in 2016, according to Transport Canada’s National Collision Database.

If you were injured or a loved one was killed in a motor vehicle collision caused by distracted, drunk, or otherwise negligent driving, a personal injury lawyer serving Mississauga may be able to fight to prove negligence on behalf of another motor vehicle driver and secure financial damages.

Know the Statute of Limitations

You do not have unlimited time to bring legal action against the liable party in the wake of a motor vehicle collision.

Proving Negligence on Behalf of Another Motor Vehicle Driver

All drivers on Canada’s roads owe a duty of care to both pedestrians and other motorists. That duty of care is generally understood to mean that every driver must act in a way that doesn’t put others at an unreasonable risk of danger.

When arguing a defendant’s liability for a motor vehicle collision, we follow a four-step process:

  • Establishing that the motorist who caused the accident had a duty of care
  • Proving that the liable motorist breached their duty of care
  • Showing that the defendant’s negligence caused your accident and injuries
  • Calculating and presenting the argument for damages

Damages You May Be Entitled to if Negligence Caused Your or Your Loved One’s Accident

If you have been injured in a motor vehicle collision, you could be compensated for your personal and financial hardship. The circumstances of each case impact the kind and amount of damages you may collect, but some examples of recoverable damages you may recover if you qualify include:

  • The cost of emergency transportation, emergency room visits, surgeries, long-term hospital stays, rehabilitation, and other medical costs
  • Lost wages stemming from your injuries
  • Diminished earning capacity from your injuries
  • Long-term disability
  • Any physical scarring that diminishes your quality of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • And more if you qualify

If the motor vehicle collision caused the death of your loved one, the defendant may be responsible for additional damages, including but not limited to:

  • Any medical care the deceased required due to the accident
  • Funeral costs
  • Loss of companionship (spouse)
  • Loss of guidance (children)
  • The loss of financial income of the deceased
  • The loss of financial protection provided by the deceased
  • Additional pain and suffering caused by the deceased’s death
  • And more if you qualify
