Cornwall Personal Injury Lawyer

While going about their day-to-day lives, no one imagines that they may suddenly be forced to contend with the aftermath of a serious injury. Our Cornwall personal injury lawyers understand how challenging, complicated, and exhausting the process of healing and recovery can be. At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we are dedicated to helping our clients understand their legal rights, while providing ease and clarity in the process of seeking financial compensation. It is our commitment to focus on our clients’ legal needs, so that our clients can concentrate on their recovery.

Our Cornwall personal injury lawyers know that each case is unique, that no accidents are exactly the same, and that each client requires an individual, detail-oriented approach. While the specific circumstances may be different, many accidents that lead to compensable injuries are the results of another person’s negligent actions.

When a person or a group of people have a legal responsibility to reasonably protect the safety of others but fail to do so through wrongful actions, errors, or omissions, they may be considered negligent if their wrongful conduct leads to an injury-causing accident involving another party.. For instance, when an individual gets behind the wheel of a car in Ontario, they are required to obey the laws set out by the Highway Traffic Act. This includes properly following traffic signals, adhering to speed limits, and refraining from driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. If a person fails to fulfill these obligations, they could cause a collision with another road-user. Accidents caused by someone else’s negligence can have devastating and potentially fatal consequences. 

Kinds of Accidents

Examples of injury-causing accidents that may stem from someone’s negligence include:

Injuries sustained in an accident caused by another party can be life-altering, with potentially adverse impacts on an accident victim’s life for years after the accident itself. These impacts could be physical, emotional, and/or financial. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, and the severity of injuries sustained, a personal injury accident victim may need hospitalization, surgery, and ongoing medical treatment, as well as potential physiotherapy and/or mobility assistive devices. They may need to rework the way they live their day to day, in order to accommodate a new disability. This is particularly true for those who have sustained catastrophic injuries as a result of someone else’s negligent actions.

In Cornwall, some of the physical injuries that may result from a traumatic accident include:

  • Paralysis
  • Amputation
  • Concussions
  • Whiplash
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Fractured bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Sprains and strains
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Damage to the internal organs
  • Damage to the face and teeth
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • And more

The repercussions of an accident often reach beyond the physical. Survivors of personal injury accidents often experience adverse psychological or emotional impacts as a result of their trauma. The very process of healing, recovery, and rehabilitation may be profoundly lonely and frightening, and changes to an individual’s quality of life may be demoralizing. Depending on the circumstances, an individual may develop severe mental health issues, ranging from mild to severe.

Mental health conditions associated with the aftermath of a traumatic injury often include:

  • Anxiety
  • Panic disorders
  • Depression
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Substance abuse
  • Insomnia, and other sleep disorders
  • And more

Psychological stress may in turn contribute to physical maladies, like high blood pressure which could lead to hypertension. Dealing with physical conditions caused by psychological stress may in turn exacerbate anxieties and other mental health conditions. Oftentimes, injured accident victims in these situations find themselves circling in a feedback loop that can be frustrating and challenging to escape.

All the while, injured accident victims could be unable to work as a result of the injuries they have sustained because of someone else’s negligence. Lost income and, depending on the severity of their injuries, the loss of ability to continue working at one’s job or profession could mean a drastic overhaul to an injured accident survivor’s life. Not only might they no longer have regular income, they are frequently required to incur monetary losses to cover the costs of medical care, physiotherapy, mobility assistive devices, psychological treatment, and more. Through one negligent act or omission on the part of another person, an everyday Cornwall resident may have their entire life turned inside out.

Help for Injured Accident Victims

Our team of Cornwall personal injury lawyers may be able to help injured accident victims pursue their legal rights through a civil claim against the party whose negligence caused the accident in question. Through these means, an injured accident victim may be able to recover financial compensation to help pay damages they have sustained as a result of their accident, including:

  • Medical bills and treatments
  • Psychological counseling
  • Physiotherapy
  • Prescription medication
  • Ambulance services
  • The cost of travel to and from medical appointments
  • Home modifications to accommodate new disabilities
  • Housekeeping services
  • The costs of pain and suffering
  • Mobility aids and assistive medical equipment
  • Income lost due to missed work
  • A reduction in future earning capacity
  • And possibly more

In order to prove that the at-fault party’s negligent actions lead to an accident victim’s injuries, our Cornwall personal injury lawyers may need to prove:

  • That the at-fault party owed the accident victim a duty of care
  • That the at-fault party, by engaging in wrongful conduct, failed to fulfill that duty of care
  • That an accident occurred as a result of the at-fault party’s wrongful conduct, thereby injuring the accident victim
  • That the resulting injuries incurred financial losses for the accident victim

Our Cornwall personal injury lawyers have extensive experience helping accident victims recover the compensation to which they are entitled. If you have been injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, we may be able to help you pursue justice and recover damages you have incurred because of your injuries.
