Toronto Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer


When a drunk driver gets behind the wheel of their car, they put themselves and other road users at risk. If impaired by alcohol, a driver may be more likely to violate other rules of the road, resulting in collisions with other vehicles. The effects of these collisions are often devastating. Because of their reckless behaviour, drunk drivers can cause families to lose a loved one. In fact, on average, four Canadians are killed every day in collisions caused by drunk drivers, per Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD Canada).

Survivors of car accidents caused by drunk drivers may sustain permanent, catastrophic injuries as a result of their collision. The effects of these injuries may impact the rest of a victim’s life and lead them to incur significant financial losses, all because an irresponsible, intoxicated individual decided to get behind the wheel.

If you’ve been injured in a car accident caused by a motorist operating their vehicle under the influence of alcohol, a Toronto drunk driving accident lawyer may be able to help you seek accountability and restitution.

The Dangers of Drunk Driving

Ingesting even a small amount of alcohol before operating a vehicle can be dangerous. Some individuals may feel like they’re able to responsibly drive a car after having one or two drinks, but according to the Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO), even one drink could impair someone’s driving ability.

Alcohol can delay normal reflexes and slow down a driver’s response time. Inebriated drivers may experience double or blurred vision. They can even lose consciousness while driving. As a result of the effects of inebriation, drivers could cause substantial property damage, severe injuries, and the loss of lives.

Injuries from Drunk Driving Accidents

Survivors of car crashes caused by drunk drivers often sustain serious injuries as a result of their collision. The criminal behaviour of another driver can lead to a range of injuries, varying in severity from moderate pains to permanent immobilization. Some injuries that can be sustained in an accident with a drunk driver may include:

In addition to physical injuries sustained as a result of a collision with a drunk driver, accident survivors may also experience emotional anguish and psychological trauma. In these situations, a victim may choose to work with a Toronto drunk driving accident lawyer to help recover damages for costs incurred as a result of a drunk driver’s negligence.
