Hawkesbury Personal Injury Lawyer


When unexpected accidents occur, the lives of injured victims could be turned upside down. Accidents in Hawkesbury frequently result in injuries that require hospitalization, long-term care solutions, physical rehabilitation, mental health services, lifestyle adjustments, and other costs that can be as expensive as they are essential.

Without assistance from a personal injury lawyer serving Hawkesbury, it can be difficult for injured residents to know about options for legal action that might be available. Most people do not anticipate being injured in an accident, nor do they have a working knowledge of personal injury law. Many injured accident survivors are eligible for compensation without even knowing it.

That said, in this province, there is a strict time limit on how long injured victims have to pursue civil action so that they can recover compensation for costs associated with their injuries. If you were injured in an accident and are unsure whether you might be entitled to compensation, contact Preszler Injury Lawyers today and receive a free initial consultation with our Hawkesbury personal injury lawyers.

Are You Eligible to Pursue a Personal Injury Claim? 

If you were visiting someone else’s home or business and slipped on improperly cleared ice and/or snow in front of their entrance, would you be entitled to pursue a personal injury claim? What if you were involved in a snowmobile collision caused by an inebriated rider? Or, what if your motorcycle was struck by another vehicle whose driver was texting behind the wheel?

These types of accidents happen all the time. They can cause accident victims to sustain severe injuries and even lose their lives. And although they each occur in different circumstances and settings, the examples above do have one common factor: someone else’s negligence directly caused the accident victim to sustain injuries.

If you sustained compensable injuries in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you might be entitled to compensation. If you are eligible to pursue a civil claim, our personal injury lawyers serving Hawkesbury may be able to help you prove that:

  • The person or organization that caused your accident owed you a duty of care
  • By engaging in wrongful conduct, the at-fault party failed to uphold that duty of care
  • Because of their negligence, an accident occurred in which you sustained injuries
  • Because of your injuries, you incurred financial losses.

Many people throughout the province owe one another a duty of care. In fact, the obligation to take certain safety precautions for the sake of others is mandated through various provincial legislations.

For example, the owners/occupiers of both residential and commercial properties are required to perform necessary maintenance work on and around their premises. By routinely inspecting their property and addressing any potentially dangerous issues in a timely manner, a property owner/occupier might help reduce the risk of injury-causing accidents onsite. That way, the people visiting their premises should be safe from harm.

If a property owner/occupier knows about a potentially hazardous maintenance issue on their premises (or should know about it) and fails to properly repair it, remove it, or warn guests about it, serious slip and fall accidents can occur. And when their lack of consideration for guests’ safety results in serious injuries, the at-fault property owner/occupier might be considered negligent and, therefore, responsible for compensating their injured victim.

While senior citizens are the most likely demographic to be involved in and seriously injured by a slip and fall accident, anyone can be the victim of a property owner/occupier’s negligence. The injuries sustained in slips and falls can be severe, and can impact all areas of an accident victim’s life for years to come.

Similarly, when the operators of motor vehicles behave unlawfully behind the wheel, their wrongful actions could have major consequences. Motor vehicle collisions resulting from negligence are often fatal. Those fortunate enough to survive serious car accidents often sustain a number of injuries that require hospitalization, including:

  • 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 
  • Paralysis
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Amputations
  • And more

Drivers are required by law to provide a duty of care to all other road-users. In accordance with the province’s Motor Vehicle Act, the operators of motor vehicles must exercise caution behind the wheel and obey local traffic laws so that others will not be injured or killed as a result of their negligence. A driver might be considered negligent if their violation of any number of traffic laws results in an injurious collision with another driver, pedestrian, motorcyclist, bicyclist, passenger, or other road-users.Common traffic law violations that often culminate in injurious collisions include:

  • Texting while driving
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Failing to obey traffic signs/signals
  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • And more

The negligence of others can manifest itself in many other types of scenarios and have similar outcomes for victims. These unfortunate situations often include:

  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • Snowmobile accidents
  • ATV accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • E-bike and e-scooter accidents
  • Sexual assault
  • Sexual abuse
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Car accidents
  • And more
