Toronto Wrong-Way Accident Lawyer


Drivers who proceed in the wrong direction on clearly marked roadways can cause serious accidents. Head-on collisions with vehicles driving the wrong way can be fatal. They can also cause severe, even catastrophic injuries.

In the city of Toronto, drivers share the road with millions of other licensed motorists. City drivers may encounter one-way streets, roadways impeded by construction work, or lanes closed for other reasons. It only takes one negligent motorist driving in the wrong direction to cause a collision.

Injuries sustained in collisions with motorists driving the wrong way can result in physical harm, emotional anguish, and substantial financial losses. If you’ve been injured as the result of another driver’s negligence, a Toronto wrong-way accident lawyer may be able to help you seek accident benefits, or pursue legal action against the driver at fault.

Understanding Wrong-Way Accidents

Confused, distracted, or inebriated drivers are among the individuals most likely to proceed in the wrong direction on a roadway. Going the wrong way on any street or highway can have serious consequences. In addition to receiving fines, citations, and possible criminal charges, motorists who drive in the wrong direction can cause severe damage to property, and to other drivers.

In a recent report, the Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) indicated that distracted driving and driving while under the influence of alcohol were among the leading causes of collision-related fatalities. Driving the wrong way can cause a family to lose a loved one. It can also cause individuals to sustain injuries.

Following an accident, taking some immediate measures may be able to help you prevent further injury, and could strengthen future legal cases against the responsible driver. These actions include:

  • Seeking immediate medical attention
  • Talking to eyewitnesses and requesting their names and contact information
  • Recording details about the accident while they’re fresh in your mind
  • Providing law enforcement officers with a thorough description of the circumstances leading to the collision

Injuries Resulting from Wrong-Way Accidents

Head-on collisions with vehicles proceeding in the wrong direction can be deadly. They can also result in serious injuries. Some injuries that may be sustained in wrong-way accidents include:

  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Cuts, bruises, or burns
  • Internal bleeding
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Head injuries
  • And more

In addition to the physical harm caused by negligent drivers, victims may experience damaging psychological effects following a collision. Mental anguish, including depression and anxiety, may result in an accident victim’s inability to return to work or get back behind the wheel.

If your injuries have resulted in financial losses due to physical or emotional difficulties caused by an accident with a motorist driving the wrong way, a Toronto car accident lawyer may be able to help you recover damages.

Recovering Damages For Injuries You Have Sustained

If another driver’s negligence has caused you to sustain injuries leading to financial losses, a Toronto wrong-way accident lawyer may be able to help you pursue legal action through a personal injury tort claim. In accordance with the province of Ontario’s Negligence Act, depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may be eligible to recover costs for the resulting damages you’ve incurred. A Toronto wrong-way accident lawyer may be able to help you recover damages for the following costs:

  • Medical expenses
