Our goal at Preszler Injury Lawyers is to help the injured victims of another party’s negligence recover the maximum amount of compensation to which they might be owed.

Accidents and their Aftermaths
A wide range of incidents caused by negligence can lead to injuries in Pembroke. These include:

In the aftermath of an injury-causing accident, an accident victim may face a long and challenging road to recovery. Depending on the circumstances, an injured accident survivor might require surgical procedures, ongoing medical treatment, physical rehabilitation, and more. They may be required to take time off work in order to heal, and may indeed no longer be able to continue working in their chosen profession.
Common physical injuries in Pembroke personal injury accidents include, but are not limited to:
- Internal organ damage
- Broken or fractured bones
- Cuts and lacerations
- Facial and dental injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Strains and sprains
- Musculoskeletal injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- And more
Coping with the painful consequences of physical injuries and the stress that often accompanies the process of convalescence can have profound emotional and psychological impacts on an accident survivor. Injured accident victims frequently develop mental health conditions, including:
- Insomnia and other sleep disorders
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Substance abuse disorders
- And more
Many people do not fully appreciate that the financial cost of recovery can be a substantial stressor for injured accident victims. Not only must an individual in post-accident convalescence endure the pain, fear, and uncertainty of their physical and mental condition, many people are forced into debt to pay for the various necessary treatments and lifestyle changes.
All because of someone else’s failure to consider the safety of those around them, an injured accident victim may incur financial losses in the form of:
- Medical bills
- Mobility aids, assistive medical equipment
- Pain and suffering
- Psychological counseling
- Housekeeping services
- Home modifications to accommodate newly acquired disabilities
- Ambulance services
- Costs of travel to and from medical appointments
- Lost wages due to missed work
- Reduced future earning capability
- And possibly more

What is Negligence?
Often, people fail to consider their responsibility to take reasonable precautions toward protecting the safety of their fellow community members. One individual’s seemingly insignificant action can have devastating consequences for another person. For instance, a driver glancing at their cell phone while their vehicle is in motion could accidentally roll through an intersection, causing a pedestrian accident resulting in catastrophic, and perhaps even fatal, injuries.
There are many circumstances in which individuals in Pembroke are required by law to provide a duty of care to others – even if they do not realize it. A duty of care means doing one’s best, within reasonable means, to maintain the safety of others and prevent accidents from taking place. Motor vehicle operators, such as the drivers of cars, are responsible for following regulations set out in Ontario’s Highway Traffic Act. Failure to obey the rules of the road can have devastating consequences. Negligent drivers whose wrongful actions caused a collision in which another road-user could be liable for the damages incurred by those who have been injured by their negligence.
Owners and occupiers of commercial or residential property owe a duty of care to visitors on their premises, as well. They must take reasonable precautions to maintain the structural integrity of their property, fix broken fixtures such as stairs, flooring or lighting, and remove physical hazards such as sidewalk ice and snow, to prevent slip and falls.
If you have been injured as a result of another person’s failure to fulfill their duty of care to you, the at-fault party may be liable for damages you have incurred as a result of your injuries. Our Pembroke personal injury lawyers may be able to help you understand your legal rights and pursue the compensation to which you are entitled.
There is a statute of limitations in place for most civil claims in Ontario. This means that, depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may have a limited amount of time to open a legal case. Your specific timeline may vary, so speak with our Pembroke personal injury lawyers today to determine how much time you have in order to begin legal proceedings.
