Orangeville Car Accident Lawyer

In the province of Ontario, distracted driving is now the most common cause of deadly car accidents. Despite robust educational initiatives to educate both beginner and seasoned drivers alike about the dangers of texting while driving and other distractions that could steal their focus from the road, the number of car accidents caused by this form of negligence continues to rise.

A number of wrongful actions, inactions, errors, omissions, or other violations of local traffic laws can have severe consequences. Injurious or fatal car accidents often occur when negligent drivers fail to consider the potential impact these actions can have on the lives of others. 

When glancing away from the road to check a text message notification, when racing through an intersection to beat a traffic light before it turns red, when driving home from the bar after having a few drinks, when hastily changing lanes without checking one’s blind spot, when engaging in any form of negligent behaviour, drivers risk ruining the lives of countless road-users and their loved ones.

In accordance with the province’s Highway Traffic Act, motor vehicle operators are required by law to proceed with reasonable caution at all times and obey local traffic laws so as to reduce the risk of injury-causing or fatal car accidents. If someone’s violation of the rules of the road causes a collision in which another road-users sustains injuries, the at-fault driver might be considered negligent and, therefore, responsible for damages incurred by their injured victim. 

Common examples of driver negligence that frequently lead to serious car accidents in Orangeville include:

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Speeding
  • Changing lanes improperly
  • Ignoring traffic signs/signals
  • Reckless driving
  • Fatigued driving 
  • Eating while driving
  • And more

Those who are fortunate enough to survive a severe collision caused by a negligent driver often sustain a number of injuries to varying degrees of severity. These injuries can adversely affect all aspects of an accident victim’s life, including their physical abilities, mental health, social relationships, future earning capabilities, and financial stability. Injuries frequently sustained as a result of local motor vehicle collisions include:

  • Whiplash 
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Strains and sprains
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Facial and dental injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries 
  • Paralysis
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Amputations
  • And more 

When drivers put their own interests ahead of the safety of others, lives can be lost, families can be torn apart, and innocent, unsuspecting community members can sustain severe, life-altering injuries. Most negligent drivers do not intend to cause other road-users harm. However, their lack of consideration for others’ safety can often be just as impactful and life-changing as the actions of a criminal with malicious intent. 

If you sustained compensable injuries in a crash caused by a negligent driver, you might be eligible to recover compensation. To learn more, take advantage of a free initial consultation with our Orangeville car accident lawyers by calling 1-800-JUSTICE today.
