Sault Ste. Marie Car Accident Lawyer


Distracted driving can be fatal. In fact, distracted driving is now the leading cause of fatal car accidents in Ontario. Now, more deadly car crashes occur because of in-car cell phone use than drivers who operate their vehicles while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

When drivers glance away from the road to check a notification on their cell phones, when they get behind the wheel after having a few drinks at a friend’s house, when they fail to notice a changing traffic light because they are adjusting their vehicle’s radio station, they do not intend to cause anyone else harm. Unfortunately, these seemingly small infractions could have monumental impacts on the unintentional victims of car accidents. 

Because of the negligence of a total stranger, innocent, unsuspecting road-users can lose their lives. Families can be ripped apart, children could be orphaned, and severe, permanently immobilizing injuries can be sustained, all because someone else felt the need to send a quick text behind the wheel. This is a distressing thought, especially given the fact that nearly half of all Canadians have admitted to using their cell phones while their vehicles were in motion.

While distracted driving might be the leading cause of deadly or injurious car accidents, it is not the only traffic law violation that could end another road-user’s life. If a driver fails to uphold the duty of care they owe to other motorists, their passengers, motorcycle riders, cyclists, pedestrians, and other road-users, they could be considered negligent when their wrongful actions lead to collisions. Driver negligence can take on many forms, including:

When a driver’s negligence behind the wheel leads to a collision in which another road-user sustains injuries, the at-fault party might be responsible for providing them with financial compensation. By working with our Sault Ste. Marie car accident lawyers, injured victims of motor vehicle collisions might be able to take legal action to try recovering the compensation they are rightfully owed.

If you are eligible to pursue a civil claim against the negligent driver, our car accident lawyers serving Sault Ste. Marie may be able to help you recover the compensation you deserve. Depending on the severity of your injuries and the overall impact they have had on your daily life, you might be entitled to both economic and non-economic damages. 

While economic damages can be calculated by tallying the total amount of monetary losses incurred by car accident victims as a result of the injuries they have sustained– including medical expenses, attendant care, lost wages, reduced future earning capabilities, and more– the cost of non-economic damages are more difficult to determine. It is impossible to truly quantify the monetary value of a catastrophically injured car crash survivor’s pain and suffering, emotional distress, or mental anguish. However, if you are eligible to file a civil claim, our Sault Ste. Marie car accident lawyers might be able to pursue the maximum amount of damages to which you could be entitled.
