Milton Personal Injury Lawyer


Anyone can be injured in an accident. Even people who are vigilant about personal safety, extra cautious behind the wheel of their vehicle, and overly careful when performing simple, routine tasks can be the victims of serious accidents caused by someone else’s negligence. 

Negligence occurs when:

  • A person or organization owes another party a duty of care
  • By engaging in some form of wrongful conduct, the responsible party or entity fails to fulfill their duty
  • As a result of their failure, someone else sustains injuries
  • Because of the injuries they have sustained, the accident victim incurs financial losses.

Negligence can be the source of multiple types of traumatic accidents. These serious events often cause Milton residents to sustain various injuries that might require hospitalization, physical rehabilitation, and other costly expenses related to their care and recovery. Examples of accidents that commonly occur in and around Milton because of someone else’s negligence include:

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

If you were involved in a serious accident and sustained compensable injuries as a result, you might be eligible to pursue a civil claim against the at-fault person or organization whose negligence caused you to be injured. Our personal injury lawyers serving Milton are passionate about providing assistance to members of the local community whose lives have been turned upside down because of someone else’s wrongful conduct. To learn about the services we provide and options for financial recovery that might be available to you, contact Preszler Injury Lawyers today by calling 1-800-JUSTICE. 

How Negligence Might Be Determined 

In the aftermath of an injurious, traumatic event it can be difficult to know whether or not your injuries and the circumstances of your accident entitle you to pursue legal action. During a free initial consultation with our Milton personal injury lawyers, you will have the chance to review the manner in which your injuries were sustained and receive personalized insights to learn if your injuries were, in fact, the product of someone else’s negligence. 

Throughout the province, in accordance with various legislations, certain people owe duties of care to others. A person does not necessarily need to have a personal, professional, or otherwise pre-existing relationship with another individual in order to owe them a duty of care. As a matter of fact, most people have a legal obligation to protect the safety of perfect strangers, and most civil claims are pursued against people whose paths have never even crossed before. 

For example, anyone who operates a motor vehicle on the province’s roads and highways must do so with a requisite degree of caution. Drivers are required by law to obey the rules of the road so that others will not be wounded or killed because of their behaviour. If a driver disregards any number of traffic laws– even for the briefest of moments– fatal accidents can occur. Motor vehicle collisions can also cause unsuspecting road-users to sustain severe injuries, 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 

If the injurious collision was caused by a driver’s misconduct, the at-fault motorist might be considered negligent. In those cases, they might be responsible for compensating the injured victims of the collision they instigated. 

Common examples of driver negligence that frequently cause serious accidents in and around Milton include:

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

But motorists are not the only people in the province who owe a duty of care to people with whom they may have never interacted before. People who own or occupy both commercial and residential properties are required by law to safeguard their premises and provide a hazard-free environment for any guests, customers, employees, delivery personnel, neighbours, passersby, and others. If a property owner and/or occupier fails to adequately address potentially dangerous maintenance issues on their premises, an unsuspecting person could be injured in a slip and fall accident

Immediately following an accident, it might not be apparent that someone else’s negligence contributed to the circumstances leading to your injuries. On someone else’s commercial or residential property, the negligent party responsible for causing your injuries may not even be present on-site at the time of your accident. However, by working with our personal injury lawyers serving Milton, you may be able to prove the correlation between the at-fault party’s failure to protect your personal safety and the compensable injuries you sustained.

To do so, our Milton personal injury lawyers might be able to compile and present various forms of evidence, including:

  • Eyewitness testimonies
  • Video surveillance footage
  • Photos of the accident scene
  • Medical reports
  • Evaluations from medical experts
  • Police reports
  • And more
