Who Gets in More Car Accidents?

According to Ontario’s Ministry of Transportation, the majority of vehicle collisions are caused by male drivers, as well as younger, less experienced motorists.

But more so than age and gender, driver negligence is one of the leading causes of car accidents in the province. Examples of negligent behaviour on the road include:

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Reckless driving
  • Violating any other traffic laws

Practicing responsible driving habits and complying with traffic laws at all times may decrease your chances of being involved in a collision. However, even the most cautious driver is vulnerable to the negligent behaviours of other road users.

Establishing Liability for Car Accidents

If a driver violates traffic laws and causes an accident in which you sustain injuries, you may be able to recover compensation for the damages you’ve incurred as a result.

After reporting your accident to your insurance company, using Ontario’s Fault Determination Rules, your insurance provider will ascertain to which degree or percentage each involved driver was responsible for the collision. If you are found to be even partially at-fault for the accident, the amount of accident benefits available to you may be reduced.

If you are found to be partially at fault for your collision, even though the primary cause was another driver’s negligence, a car accident lawyer may be able to help you appeal the insurance company’s decision.

Recovering Compensation from a Negligent Driver

If you sustained injuries in an accident caused by another driver’s negligence, and the financial losses you incurred as a result exceed the accident benefits available to you through insurance coverage, a car accident lawyer may be able to help you pursue compensation from the other driver by filing a tort claim.

If you sustained severe, permanent, or catastrophic injuries as a result of another driver’s negligence, you may experience emotional trauma, mental anguish, and a diminished quality of life. In this unfortunate situation, a lawyer may be able to help you recover damages for pain and suffering from the responsible party.

Injuries that cause permanent disability, such as paralysis and traumatic brain injuries may entitle you to receive compensation for future lost income.
