Orleans Personal Injury Lawyer

An accident causing significant injuries can happen to even the most safety-minded resident of Orleans. While no one expects to have their life overturned while going through an everyday activity such as crossing the street, picking up groceries, or visiting a friend, another person’s negligence can have devastating consequences. 

Reckless driving can lead to a collision that inflicts severe damage, or even wrongful death, onto an unsuspecting accident victim. And if the owner or occupier of a residential building has failed to fix a hazardous set of stairs, a visitor may become seriously injured in a trip and fall. These are just two examples of common injury-causing accidents that can stem from another party’s negligence. Other possible traumatic incidents in Orleans include:

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

If you have sustained injuries in an accident caused by another party’s negligent or wrongful actions, you may be eligible for financial compensation to help cover the costs you have incurred as a result of your injuries. Our team of Orleans personal injury lawyers is dedicated to helping our clients understand their legal rights, and recover the compensation to which they are entitled. Call us at 1-800-JUSTICE or contact us through our online form to book a free initial consultation today. 

The Costs of a Personal Injury Accident

Each case is different, but depending on the circumstances of the accident and the nature of the injuries sustained, the physical, emotional, psychological, and financial costs of a personal injury accident can be significant. 

Just some of the physical effects of an injury caused by another person’s negligence may include:

  • Spinal cord injuries 
  • Paralysis
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Facial and dental injuries
  • Concussions
  • Amputations
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Internal organ damage
  • Strains and sprains
  • Neck and back injuries
  • And more

An injured accident victim’s new medical status may uproot their life and the lives of their loved ones. A newly acquired disability, for instance, may require an injured accident victim to change their lifestyle, including how they spend their days, how they get around, where they work, and how their home is arranged. The combined costs of mobility devices such as wheelchairs and walkers, of prosthetics, and/or of home renovations to improve its accessibility could place an injured accident survivor and their family members into substantial debt. 

At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we believe that no one should have to take on the price of somebody else’s negligent or wrongful actions. If you have been involved in an accident caused by somebody else, in which you sustained injuries, you may be eligible for compensation to help cover the following:

  • Medical bills
  • Ambulance services
  • Prescription medication
  • Prosthetics
  • Mobility aids
  • Physiotherapy
  • Pain and suffering
  • Travel to and from medical appointments
  • Home modifications to accommodate newly acquired disabilities
  • Housekeeping services
  • Psychological counseling
  • Lost wages due to missed work
  • Reduced future earning capability
  • And possibly more

The specific damages available to injured accident victims depend on the individual case’s unique circumstances. Call our Orleans personal injury lawyers at 1-800-JUSTICE to discuss your situation, or contact us online today.

The Long-Lasting Impacts of Accident Injuries

Some physical injuries heal over time, but others can alter a person’s body forever. Even in situations where the wounds heal, the psychological and emotional impacts of the accident may have long-lasting impacts on the accident victim’s day-to-day life. 

The recovery process, especially following a serious injury, can be as challenging emotionally as it is physically, and may feel discouraging, distressing, and profoundly isolating. Returning to one’s previous ways of living following a catastrophic injury may be impossible. It is no surprise that mental health concerns frequently arise in conjunction with personal injuries. These may include:

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Substance abuse issues
  • Insomnia and/or other sleep disorders
  • Addiction 
  • And more

What is Negligence?

In Ontario, there are many people who, in certain professions or circumstances, are expected to uphold a duty of care to others. This means taking reasonable steps to prevent accidents from occuring that may jeopardize the safety of others. 

On the road, for instance, drivers owe a duty of care to their passengers and fellow road users (including other motor vehicle operators, cyclists, and pedestrians). Drivers must follow the regulations set out by the Highway Traffic Act, such as following road signals, obeying the speed limit, and driving sober. If a driver fails to adhere to these laws and a car accident ensues as a result, they may be considered negligent.

In the context of premises liability cases, the owner and/or occupier of a residential or commercial property have similar responsibilities. Property owners/occupiers owe a duty of care to their visitors, meaning they are required to take reasonable precautions to maintain the safety of the premises. Examples of these responsibilities might include fixing broken tiling that could pose a tripping hazard, keeping walkways free from clutter, and ensuring that the premises are adequately lit.
