Accidents in Renfrew
An injurious accident in Renfrew could happen anywhere, to anyone, at any time. These traumatic incidents are often the result of a person or group of people’s negligent conduct, which may include wrongful action or omission of action. Negligence, in this legal context, is when a person fails to take reasonable precautions to maintain the safety of their fellow community members. It may be a driver failing to obey a stop sign, thereby causing a car accident that paralyzes a pedestrian crossing the street. It may be the owner of a residential property failing to clear their sidewalk of winter ice and snow, leading a passerby to slip and fall and sustain a traumatic brain injury.
Our Renfrew personal injury lawyers have experience helping clients understand their legal rights in the context of many different incidents, including:
- Boating accidents
- Car accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Snowmobile accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Sexual Assault
- Sexual Abuse
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- ATV accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- E-bike and e-scooter accidents
- And more
If someone else’s negligence caused an accident which caused you to sustain serious injuries, you may be eligible to pursue compensation to help recover damages you have incurred as a result of your injuries.
In the context of personal injury law, there are two kinds of damages typically invoked: economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are easily-calculable monetary amounts representing financial losses you have suffered as a result of your injuries. Examples may include:
- The costs of medical treatment
- Prescription medication
- Ambulance travel
- Travel to and from medical appointments
- The costs of physiotherapy
- The costs of psychological counseling
- Home modifications to accommodate a newly acquired medical condition and/or disability
- Attendant care
- Income lost as a result of your injuries
- Loss of future income potential
- And more
As listed above, there may be compensation available to cover not just the bills already incurred, such as the cost of the ambulance that may have taken you from the accident scene, but also for projected future losses. A disabling medical condition may prevent you from ever working again, which could, in turn, plunge an entire family into debt. At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we believe that no one should have to suffer the financial consequences for someone else’s negligence. Contact us today to see what compensation might be available to you.
It is not uncommon for injured accident victims to experience substantial amounts of emotional and psychological distress as a result of their physical injuries and the financial pressures in the aftermath of an accident. Mental conditions such as depression, anxiety, panic disorders, and post-traumatic stress disorder may develop, often with devastating consequences. While it may not be possible to put a fair dollar amount on an individual’s traumatic life experiences, there may be financial support available in the form of non-economic damages, in this case. Non-economic damages refer to intangible costs incurred as a result of a catastrophically injurious incident, such as emotional distress, mental anguish, pain and suffering.
In order to be eligible for financial compensation to recover damages incurred as a result of your injuries, you and your lawyer will likely be required to provide evidence that your injuries were caused by an accident that resulted from another party’s negligence. Negligence, in this context, is the other party’s failure to take reasonable measures to maintain your physical safety. In order to prove negligence, your lawyer will need to present the following:
- Proof that the at-fault party owed you a duty of care (the reasonable expectation, within the context of your relationship, that they prevent you from sustaining injuries)
- Proof that, through wrongful actions or a failure to act, the at-fault party caused an accident
- Proof that you were injured as a direct result of that accident
- Proof that your resulting injuries caused you to incur financial losses.
The road to recovery may be long and isolating, and the uncertainties brought on by financial instability can be overwhelming. Even with moderate injuries sustained in a traumatic incident, an accident victim may find themselves paying exorbitant out-of-pocket expenses for vital healthcare, physical rehabilitation, psychological counseling, and more. Our Renfrew personal injury lawyers are committed to supporting the legal rights of injured accident victims, and would be happy to talk through the possibilities available in your specific case.
