Dryden Personal Injury Lawyer
No one imagines that, while going about their everyday routine, they will be involved in a life-changing accident. Unfortunately, because of the negligence of others, commonplace activities like commuting to work, picking the kids up from school, or taking a recreational boat ride can suddenly transform the entire course of an accident victim’s life.
In Dryden, accidents caused by the negligence of others often result in physical and psychological injuries ranging in severity from moderate to catastrophic. Accidents can also be fatal, leading to the immediate wrongful death of the people involved in the traumatic incident. Furthermore, the injuries sustained in an accident can accelerate the conditions leading to an accident victim’s premature death.
Depending on the circumstances of the accident, survivors of traumatic events might be forced to endure chronic pain, newly acquired disabilities, emotional and psychological distress, and financial instability. Because of someone else’s negligence, injured accident victims could experience a diminished overall quality of life, impacting their physical abilities, their social relationships, their employment status, and their very independence.
Examples of injuries commonly sustained in accidents caused by someone else’s negligence include:
- Broken or fractured bones
- Cuts and lacerations
- Strains and sprains
- Musculoskeletal injuries
- Facial and dental injuries
- Internal organ damage
- Neck and back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- And more
Recovering from injuries sustained in a traumatic accident or adapting to life with a newly acquired disability can be a long, challenging, and expensive journey. Many injured accident survivors struggle to cope with their newly amassed financial obligations, and often cannot afford to pay both their necessary costs of living on top of their injury-related expenses.
However, people who were injured as the result of another party or entity’s negligence might be eligible to pursue legal action by filing a civil claim against the responsible person or organization. By working with a Dryden personal injury lawyer, injured accident victims may be able to recover the compensation they rightfully deserve.
Many people throughout the province owe other community members a duty of care. In accordance with various provincial and federal legislations, people who take on certain responsibilities such as driving a motor vehicle, owning/occupying property, or operating a pleasure craft on the water have a responsibility to exercise a reasonable degree of caution and to factor the safety of others into their actions. Failure to do so could be considered negligence.
For example, the province’s Highway Traffic Act legislates the rules of the road for all motor vehicle operators. By violating any number of traffic laws, drivers essentially fail to fulfill the duty of care they are legally obligated to supply other road-users. If their wrongful actions, inactions, errors, omissions, or other violations of traffic laws leads to a collision in which another party sustains injuries, the at-fault motorist might be considered negligent. Examples of driver negligence that frequently lead to injury-causing collisions in the region include:
- Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
- Texting while driving
- Distracted driving
- Improper lane changes
- Ignoring traffic signs/signals
- And more

Our personal injury lawyers serving Dryden have experience helping members of the local community who have been injured in a number of different kinds of traumatic events. Not all injury-causing accidents occur on roads, highways, nature trails, or during high speed collisions on the water. Indeed, many accidents that lead to injuries requiring hospitalization happen when the victim leasts expects them to.
Slick patches of ice outside a residential building, recently mopped floors in retail stores, potholes in parking lots, and other all-too common hazards can lead to severe slip and fall accidents with severe outcomes. Depending on the physical condition of the accident scene as well as the age and medical condition of the accident victim, slips and falls on someone else’s property can cause an unsuspecting community member to require lengthy periods of hospitalization, intensive physical rehabilitation, and drastic changes to their lifestyle.
In accordance with the province’s Occupiers’ Liability Act, the owners/occupiers of commercial and residential properties also owe others a duty of care. The people or entities responsible for ensuring the safety of visitors to the premises are required by law to routinely inspect the property for potentially dangerous hazards and address them in a time, efficient way. If the unsafe maintenance issue cannot be immediately repaired or removed from the premises, at the very least, property owners/occupiers should display clearly visible warnings to visitors about the hazardous conditions so as to prevent injurious accidents from occurring.
If a property owner/occupier knows about an unsafe condition on their premises– or should know about it– but fails to take any action at all, they might be considered negligent. Therefore, they might be responsible for providing the people injured a slip and fall on their premises with financial compensation for injury-related financial losses they have sustained.
