Richmond Hill Car Accident Lawyer

Negligent drivers in Richmond Hill can cause disastrous, life-changing collisions. All road-users, including other motorists and their passengers, motorcycle riders, cyclists, pedestrians, and others can have their lives cut short because of a stranger’s wrongful, unlawful actions (or inactions) behind the wheel. Furthermore, when the operators of motor vehicles fail to take the safety of other community members into consideration, accident victims can sustain a host of injuries ranging in severity from moderate to catastrophic

No matter how severe injuries may initially seem, after a car crash, accident victims often incur substantial financial losses. Sustaining injuries in motor vehicle collisions can cause injured accident survivors to endure prolonged periods of hospitalization, to undergo invasive and complicated surgeries, to rely on assistive medical equipment, to require regular medical treatments or physiotherapy, to seek out the aid of live-in personal support workers, and to incur additional costly expenses related to the injuries they have sustained. 

Regardless of which driver was responsible for causing the collision to occur, injured survivors of the car crash should be able to collect no-fault accident benefits to help them afford the costs of necessary care and other injury-related expenses. This is because, in accordance with Ontario’s Compulsory Automobile Insurance Act, every driver in the province must have the minimum amount of insurance coverage outlined in the Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule (SABS). 

Accident benefits can offer crucial financial support to injured survivors of car accidents in Richmond Hill. Unfortunately, they are not always sufficient to cover an injured car crash survivor’s total losses, especially if they have sustained severe injuries and can no longer continue working as a result. 

However, injured car accident survivors whose collisions were caused by another driver’s negligence may have additional avenues for seeking out compensation. By working with our Richmond Hill car accident lawyers, people who were injured as a result of another driver’s negligence may be able to pursue a civil claim against the at-fault motorist in an attempt to recover the compensation they rightfully deserve. 

Negligence behind the wheel can take on many forms. If a motorist violates any number of provincial traffic laws and a collision ensues as a result of their wrongful behaviour, they may be considered negligent. Therefore, the at-fault driver might be liable for damages incurred by the people who have been harmed because of their unlawful actions. 

Injurious and fatal collisions resulting from negligent driving are on the rise throughout the province. In fact, according to a recent report released by the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), fatal car accidents caused by exceeding the speed limit have reached a ten-year high. In addition to speeding, examples of negligent driving that often lead to injury-causing collisions include:

  • Texting while driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Driving under the influence of drugs
  • Fatigued driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Improperly changing lanes
  • Ignoring traffic signs/signals
  • Eating while operating the vehicle
  • And more
