Thunder Bay Personal Injury Lawyer

When accidents happen, the people injured as a result often find themselves struggling to withstand the physical, emotional, and financial ramifications. Accidents in Thunder Bay frequently cause innocent, unsuspecting people to sustain a wide array of injuries ranging in severity from moderate to catastrophic. These injuries often include:

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

Sustaining any number of physical injuries can have long-term consequences that impact all areas of an accident victim’s life. Recovering from injuries can be a long, difficult, and expensive process. Many injured accident victims incur substantial financial losses as a result of the injuries they have sustained. These losses might be related to their necessary costs of medical care, wages lost because of missed work, equipment, prescriptions, lifestyle adjustments, reduced future earning capabilities, and more. 

If the injuries sustained by an accident survivor make it impossible for them to return to the workplace, they could experience legitimate anxieties over their ability to continue supporting themselves and their loved ones. And while some Thunder Bay residents who are no longer able to work as a result of the injuries they sustained in an accident may have sufficient insurance coverage to qualify for long-term disability (LTD) benefits, oftentimes insurance providers find reasons to deny LTD claims from eligible applicant and withhold the payments to which they should be entitled. 

These traumatic events can irrevocably harm a survivor, impacting their own lives and the lives of the people they love. Often these scenarios include:

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

In addition to the physical and financial challenges injured accident survivors are frequently forced to endure, oftentimes these difficulties are exacerbated by newly acquired mental health concerns. Recovering from physical injuries can be a lonely journey, and a demoralizing one. Readjusting to regular life after sustaining a disabling medical condition can also feel overwhelming, isolating, and hopeless. There is no wonder accident survivors frequently develop severe mental health conditions as a result of the injuries they have sustained. Common examples of mental health issues frequently developed by injured accident victims in Thunder Bay include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Insomnia and/or other sleep disorders
  • Alcohol use disorder
  • And more

If the accident in which you were injured was caused by someone else’s negligence, you might be eligible to pursue a civil claim against the person or organization responsible for your newly acquired medical condition. By working with personal injury lawyers serving Thunder Bay, you may be able to recover compensation for costs you have incurred or will incur in the future because of the at-fault party’s negligence.

To learn whether you might be entitled to compensation, call 1-800-JUSTICE today and book a free initial consultation with our Thunder Bay personal injury lawyers. 

Who is Considered Negligent?

In accordance with various provincial legislations, people who participate in certain activities are required to do so with a reasonable degree of caution. For example, the people who own and/or occupy commercial or residential properties are required to take certain precautions to reduce the risk of injurious accidents on their premises. If these parties fail to carry out their responsibilities, other people could be injured in unexpected accidents. The law requires property owners/occupiers to regularly inspect their premises, identify potential hazards on-site, and take appropriate actions to address them so that no one gets hurt. If a property owner/occupier knows about a potentially dangerous maintenance issue on their premises (or should know about it) and fails to properly rectify it, they might be considered negligent should an accident ensue. 

Similarly, in accordance with provincial laws, the people who operate motor vehicles anywhere throughout the province are required to do so with a reasonable degree of caution. Drivers owe a duty of care to other road-users, including other motorists, passengers, bicyclists, pedestrians, motorcycle riders, and others. Traffic laws exist to help reduce the risk of injurious or fatal collisions. However, if a driver violates the rules of the road, even for a brief moment, their unlawful actions could have disastrous consequences. If a driver engages in wrongful conduct behind the wheel and an accident occurs as a result, the at-fault driver might be considered negligent. Common examples of driver negligence include:

  • Texting while driving
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Speeding
  • Fatigued driving
  • Changing lanes improperly 
  • Ignoring traffic signs/signals
  • Distracted driving 
  • And more

Negligent parties who have failed to fulfill their duties of care may be responsible for financially compensating injured victims of accidents caused by their wrongful behaviour. By working with a personal injury lawyer serving Thunder Bay, injured accident victims may be able to recover compensation from the party responsible for causing their injurious accident. Injured accident victims might be entitled to compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Physiotherapy 
  • Mobility aids, assistive medical equipment
  • Prescriptions
  • Home modifications to accommodate newly acquired disabilities 
  • Ambulance services
  • Mileage expenses to and from medical appointments
  • Housekeeping services
  • Psychological counselling
  • Lost wages due to missed work
  • Reduced future earning capability 
  • And possibly more
