Kinds of Accidents
With a combined experience that spans over 60 years, our legal team at Preszler Injury Lawyers provides pivotal legal support to individuals who have sustained injuries in a range of traumatic incidents and accidents. Examples include:
- Truck accidents
- Car accidents
- Boating accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Snowmobile accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Sexual Assault
- Sexual Abuse
- E-bike and e-scooter accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- ATV accidents
- And more
Each case is unique, and the circumstances of any given traumatic event may vary vastly, but one common factor typically underpins them: the negligence of another party. When another person or group of people fails to take reasonable precautions to consider and protect the safety of others, and instead engage in dangerous behaviour that causes an injurious accident, the at-fault party may be considered negligent, and therefore liable for damages their accident victims have incurred as a result.
Who Is Eligible to Pursue a Personal Injury Claim?
In Canada, many people owe others a duty of care. Operators of motor vehicles, skilled professionals, product manufacturers, and owners and occupiers of property, as well as many other individuals and organizations have a legal duty to take reasonable precautions to protect the physical safety of others. Drivers on Ontario highways, for example, owe their fellow road-users a duty of care to obey the laws set out by the Highway Traffic Act. This includes such safety measures as obeying speed limits and road signs, as well as driving while sober.
In order to prove that you have been injured as a result of somebody else’s failure to uphold their duty of care, our Rockland personal injury lawyers may be required to provide evidence that includes the following:
- That the at-fault party owed you a duty of care
- That the at-fault party breached that duty of care through negligent action or inaction
- That you sustained compensable injuries as a result of the at-fault party’s negligence
- That, as a result of your injuries, you have incurred financial losses
Examples of evidence that may help to prove the at-fault party’s negligence causing your accident may include:
- Video surveillance footage
- Eyewitness testimonies
- Evaluations from medical experts
- Photos of the accident scene
- Police reports
- Medical reports
- And more
How is the Value of a Personal Injury Claim Determined?
One person’s negligent action or omission can forever alter the lives of injured accident victims. In the moment it takes for a distracted driver to check their incoming text messages, a life may be lost. Rockland traumatic accidents can have catastrophic– or fatal– consequences. An array of accidents may lead to serious injuries that require medical attention and/or hospitalization, as well as ongoing physiotherapy, and other forms of medical care, which often come with a cost.
Common injuries sustained in Rockland accidents include:
- Broken or fractured bones
- Strains and sprains
- Cuts and lacerations
- Facial and dental injuries
- Musculoskeletal injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Internal organ damage
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- And more
The journey of recovery after sustaining serious injuries in a traumatic accident can be challenging, expensive, and long. It is not uncommon for injured accident victims to have to take time away from work in order to give themselves time to heal. This may mean facing a significant reduction in income at the same time as increased expenses and other financial losses related to one’s injuries begin to accumulate.
In some cases, depending on the severity of the injuries, an accident victim may no longer be able to continue working in their current field. At times, injuries are so severe that an individual may lose the ability to sustain any future employment whatsoever. In either case, individuals may see not only a temporary loss of wages, but a severe reduction in future earning potential.
Our Rockland personal injury lawyers believe that no one should have to shoulder the financial consequences of another person’s negligence. Contact us today to discuss the specifics of your case, and see how Preszler Injury Lawyers may be able to help you.
