Types of Accidents
A personal injury can stem from a wide range of different kinds of accidents, and our Arnprior personal injury lawyers have decades of experience assisting injured individuals and their family members in their fight for fair compensation in the wake of a traumatic injury. Some of the most common causes of severe injury include:
- Motor vehicle accidents (including car accidents)
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Dog bites
- Defective products
- Birth Injuries
- Sexual assault
- And more
The circumstances of each individual case may be vastly different, but there is often one common factor: the negligence of another person. Negligence occurs when another individual, group of individuals, or entity (such as an organization) has failed to consider your safety and, instead, engaged in irresponsible actions (or inactions) that cause another individual to sustain compensable injuries. In these types of circumstances, the at-fault party could be legally required to compensate their victims for the damages they have incurred as a result of their negligence.
Are You Eligible to Pursue a Personal Injury Claim?
In order to be eligible to pursue a personal injury claim, you are typically required to prove that the at-fault party owed you a duty of care. A duty of care is a responsibility to take certain precautions to ensure the safety of others. For example, laws surrounding premises liability require the owners and/or occupiers of properties to take reasonable measures to ensure the safety of visitors. Other examples of people who are often responsible for providing a duty of care include drivers, product manufacturers, and skilled professionals such as doctors.
On the road, drivers behind the wheel of any motor vehicle have a duty of care to take reasonable precautions in order to keep their passengers and fellow road-users safe. This includes following traffic laws such as traffic lights and speed limits, and not driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Failure to adhere to a reasonable standard of safety precautions could contribute to severe accidents, causing other people to sustain potentially life-altering injuries.
If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s failure to take reasonable steps in upholding the duty of care they owed you, you may be eligible for compensation by pursuing a personal injury claim. Our Arnprior personal injury lawyers may be able to clarify your eligibility through a series of questions, including:
- Did the at-fault party owe you a duty of care?
- Did the at-fault party breached that duty by engaging in negligent conduct?
- Were your injuries a result of the at-fault party’s negligence?
- Have you incurred financial loss as a result of your injuries?
If you are eligible to pursue a civil claim, certain evidence might help to substantiate your claim. Our Arnprior personal injury lawyers may request that you provide the following types of evidence:
- Photographs of the scene of the accident
- Authorized medical reports
- Doctor testimony
- Eyewitness testimony
- Police reports
- Surveillance footage from the accident scene
- Police reports
- And more
How Much Is Your Personal Injury Claim Worth?
One negligent action or omission, in a certain context, could have devastating consequences. For instance, when a driver on a highway turns their attention away from the road and onto their cell phone, they may cause an accident that takes the lives of multiple people. Non-fatal accidents too may be profoundly traumatic. Serious injuries in and around Arnprior may include the following:
- Bone breaks and fractures
- Sprains and strains
- Lacerations and cuts
- Injuries to the musculoskeletal system
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Damage to the internal organs
- Accident-related psychological injuries
- Facial and dental injuries
- Injuries to the neck and back
- Spinal cord injuries
- And more
Injuries like these could lead to an individual needing hospitalization, as well as incurring potential substantial expenses through medical treatment and long-term physiotherapy. The recovery processes for serious injuries are often long, difficult, and financially burdensome. In order to take the time required to heal from their injuries, accident victims often take time away from work, which could result in substantial losses of wages and an accumulation of additional debt. Depending on the nature of the injury, an accident victim may even be unable to continue working in their current field, or be forced to take on reduced responsibilities. This impacts not only the wages lost in the process of recovery, but also the individual’s future earning potential.
Our team of Arnprior personal injury lawyers respect the uniqueness of each case. We believe that accident victims should receive the financial support they are legally due to help in their rehabilitation and recovery. Through a personal injury claim against the party responsible for your accident, you may be able to recover damages, both economic and non-economic alike.
The term “economic damages” refers to tangible dollar amounts in damages you have incurred as a result of your injuries. This may include medical bills, the costs of physiotherapy, and/or payment for attendant care. If you are no longer able to work your job as a result of your injuries, your economic damages may include the future income you have expected to earn.
“Non-economic damages” refers to the intangible losses, such as pain and suffering, mental anguish, emotional distress, and more. They are not as easy to quantify as economic damages, but their effect on the life of an injured person can be just as substantial. Those who have survived the severe trauma of catastrophic injuries, for instance, may experience a fundamental overhaul of their lives, in which activities they were once able to enjoy are no longer accessible to them.
