Picton Personal Injury Lawyer

If you have sustained severe injuries because of an accident caused by somebody else’s negligence, there may be legal avenues available for you to pursue financial compensation. The road to recovery can be challenging and prohibitively expensive, and injured accident victims may be eligible to receive financial support to help recover the financial losses they have incurred as a result of their injuries. 

At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we believe that no one should have to bear the financial consequences of another party’s negligence. Our Picton personal injury lawyers have over 60 years of experience supporting our clients’ legal rights across the spectrum of personal injury cases. Contact us today to discuss your circumstances, and see what options may be available to you.

Is My Personal Injury Claim Valid?

Every case is different. The circumstances and consequences of each accident and its resulting injuries can vary greatly. However, there are many different accidents in which Picton residents may sustain compensable injuries that may entitle them to pursue legal action in the form of a civil claim. These situations include:

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

Injuries caused by these types of traumatic incidents can range from moderate to life-altering, catastrophic, and even fatal. Common physical injuries sustained by Picton residents as a result of accidents caused by somebody else’s negligence include:

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

Survivors of accidents caused by somebody else’s negligence often face a long road to recovery, or acquire new disabilities forcing them to overhaul their day-to-day lives. Even a moderate injury sustained in a traumatic accident may force a victim to lose income by having to take time away from work, all the while paying out of pocket for the costs of medical procedures, prescription medication, and rehabilitative practices such as physiotherapy and psychological counseling. 

The financial consequences of a traumatic injury can be substantial. It is not uncommon for injured accident victims and their families to incur debt throughout their process of recovery. Fortunately, financial compensation may be available through legal means for those who have been injured in an accident caused by another party’s negligence. This compensation may be able to cover:

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

Proving Negligence

If you have been injured in an accident and are wondering about your eligibility to pursue compensation through the legal avenue of a civil claim, consider whether you can provide evidence that the accident in which you were injured was directly caused by another party’s negligence.

Negligence, in this context, means a person’s failure to uphold the duty of care they owed you under the circumstances in which your accident occurred. A driver on the road, for example, is legally responsible for taking reasonable precautions to prevent actions that may injure fellow road users. This may involve following the traffic regulations outlined in Ontario’s Highway Traffic Act

Other examples of negligence can include circumstances in which the owner of a commercial property fails to clean up slippery floors or clearly warn guests about a potential  slip and fall hazard. In a professional setting, practitioners such as doctors, nurses and registered massage therapists owe a duty to the individuals in their care to maintain a reasonable standard of safety. Failure to uphold that duty may likewise be considered negligence, thereby rendering the professional liable for damages incurred as a result of a victim’s injuries. 

In order to prove negligence in a personal injury case, our Picton personal injury lawyers might be able to collect and present evidence that substantiates our clients’ claim. Evidence might include:

  • Medical reports
  • Doctor testimony
  • Testimony from eyewitnesses at the accident scene
  • Video footage of the accident
  • Photos of the accident scene
  • Police reports
  • And more

How Is the Value of a Personal Injury Claim Calculated?

Each personal injury claim has a different context, and therefore values can vary vastly. The amount of compensation available to an injured accident victim is typically based on the amount of financial losses they have sustained or are expected to sustain as a result of their injuries. 

Our Picton personal injury lawyers would be happy to listen to the specifics of your case to calculate the impact your injuries may have had on your physical, psychological, and financial well-being. At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we respect the often-uncertain, isolating, complicated and expensive nature of the road to recovery from a traumatic incident such as a personal injury accident. We are committed to compassionate listening, and a detail-oriented approach in service of your legal rights.
