Car Accident Causes in Markham
While most people have a long list of fears, from terrorism and heights to snakes and spiders, the fact is that for most of us, driving is statistically the deadliest and most dangerous thing we do on a daily basis. And there is an endless array of ways one can find themselves in a car accident. At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we have helped injured drivers and passengers recover compensation for many types of car accidents. The most common include the following:
Rear-end collisions are incredibly common, particularly in heavy traffic. They are usually the fault of the back driver, though not always. A rear-end collision can occur for several reasons, including the back driver following too closely or not paying close enough attention to the road, or because the front driver locks their brakes up for no good reason.
No matter how your rear-end collision occurred, or whether you were the front or back driver, we will investigate and gather evidence showing that the other driver committed negligence and is therefore liable for your injuries.
Side-impact collisions, defined as a car accident where the front of one car strikes the side of the other, occur most often at intersections, usually because one driver fails to stop at a red light or stop sign. These accidents are often referred to as “T-bone” collisions because of the “T” shape formed by the two colliding automobiles, and the occupants of the vehicle that forms the top of the T tend to sustain the worst injuries.
A head-on collision is the deadliest kind of car accident due to the “double impact” effect. They occur most often because someone is either driving down the wrong side of the road or is straddling the centerline.
Drunk driving is illegal everywhere in Canada, and no matter how your car accident occurred—whether it was a rear-end, side-impact, head-on collision or something else—if the other driver was drinking, we can use that to make a case against them and hold them liable for your injuries.
Thanks to the ubiquity of technology—smartphones in particular— distracted driving has become a veritable epidemic, as drivers routinely fix one eye on the road (at best) and the other on the latest text or social media post to come across their device. The Ontario Ministry of Transportation reported that someone was injured due to distracted driving every half hour in 2013. If you believe your accident involved a distracted driver, we can look at cell phone records and other evidence to prove that the driver who hit you had their mind, and their eyes, on something other than the road.
Inclement weather accentuates bad driving behavior, making it more likely that the person who is drinking, tailgating, or texting causes an accident. The fact that it was raining or snowing does not excuse the fact that a driver broke a traffic law or operated their vehicle negligently.
