Car Accident Lawyer Ottawa

Even the most safety-minded, cautious, and attentive motorist can be injured in a car accident caused by a negligent driver. If someone fails to consider the devastating potential consequences of their actions, unsuspecting, innocent motorists can be severely injured, or even killed.

Because of a driver’ lack of concern for the safety of others, families can be torn apart. In a sudden, violent, and tragically preventable set of circumstances, community members going about their daily routines can have their lives cut short, and all because of another driver’s disregard for their physical safety.

Traffic laws exist in an attempt to reduce the instances of fatal and injurious accidents on the province’s roads and highways. Unfortunately, according to a recent report on traffic safety statistics released by the Ontario Ministry of Transportation, nearly 24,000 deadly or injury-causing car accidents occurred throughout the province in just one year

In accordance with the province’s Highway Traffic Act, anyone who operates a motor vehicle in Ontario is legally required to fulfill a duty of care to other road-users, including:

  • Other drivers
  • Their passengers
  • Motorcycle riders
  • Cyclists
  • Pedestrians 
  • And others

If a driver violates any of the rules of the road and their wrongful conduct causes a collision in which another road-user sustains compensable injuries, the at-fault motorist might be considered negligent and, as a result, they might be liable for damages incurred by injured accident victims. Depending on the severity of the injuries sustained and the impact they have had on a car accident victim’s overall quality of life, these damages often include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Attendant care
  • Physiotherapy 
  • Mobility aids, assistive medical equipment
  • Prescriptions
  • Home modifications to accommodate newly acquired disabilities 
  • Ambulance services
  • Mileage expenses to and from medical appointments
  • Housekeeping services
  • Psychological counseling
  • And possibly more 

If you were injured in an accident caused by a negligent driver, there is no time to waste. In accordance with the Ontario Limitations Act, injured car accident victims have only two years from the date of their collisions in which to pursue a civil claim.

By working with our Ottawa car accident lawyers, injured car accident survivors may be able to recover both economic and non-economic damages resulting from their injuries from the irresponsible drivers whose negligence caused their injurious accidents to occur.
