Timmins Personal Injury Lawyer


Have you been injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence? If so, our Timmins personal injury lawyers may be able to help you pursue accountability, restitution, and financial compensation.

In accordance with various provincial legislations, certain members of the populace owe a duty of care to others. When these parties or entities shirk their legal responsibilities, they could potentially endanger the lives of innocent, unsuspecting community members. If their wrongful actions lead to an accident in which another person sustains compensable physical or psychological injuries, the at-fault party could be considered negligent. If so, they might be liable for damages incurred by the injured party as a result of being involved in the accident they caused.

Depending on the nature of the accident and the severity of the injuries they have sustained, the damages to which injured accident survivors might be entitled could be economic and/or non-economic in nature. Economic damages refer to the calculable costs incurred by accident victims because of the injuries they have already sustained, as well as damages they could incur in the future on account of the at-fault party’s negligence. These damages can be totalled by tallying all injury-related financial losses already paid for out-of-pocket and by estimating monetary losses that will be incurred in the future.

For example, if the injuries sustained by an accident survivor make it impossible for them to perform the duties of your job, by working with a Timmins personal injury lawyer, they might be able to pursue compensation for the expected loss of future income in addition to costs they have already incurred. Furthermore, if their injuries render an accident victim immobile or robs them of their independence, they may require ongoing attendant care for the foreseeable future. The future costs required to hire personal support workers could be included in the economic damages pursued by an injured accident victim’s personal injury lawyer.

Non-economic damages are more difficult to quantify, however their impact on an injured accident victim’s life are often just as consequential as the financial losses they have incurred. People who have survived severe accidents with catastrophic injuries may be entitled to pursue non-economic damages in a civil claim if their newly acquired impairments prevent them from engaging in the same activities they enjoyed before being injured in their accident. Examples of non-economic damages include pain and suffering, emotional distress, mental anguish, and more.

Anyone can be involved in an injurious, life-changing accident. Even the most cautious, safety-minded community members could have their lives turned upside down after an unexpected encounter with a negligent motorist, boat operator, property owner, medical professional, consumer product manufacturer, or other community member who shirks the duty of care they are legally required to provide to others.

Throughout the province, many individuals owe a duty of care to other citizens. For example, in accordance with the Highway Traffic Act, anyone who operates a motor vehicle is required to do so with a reasonable degree of caution and in consideration for the safety of other road-users, including:

  • Other drivers
  • Their passengers
  • Motorcycle riders
  • Cyclists
  • Pedestrians 
  • And others

If a driver violates any of the rules of the road and their wrongful conduct causes a collision in which another road-user sustains compensable injuries, the at-fault motorist might be considered negligent. As a result, they might be liable for damages incurred by injured accident victims. 

Common examples of driver negligence that frequently leads to injury-causing collisions in Timmins include:

  • Texting while driving
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Improperly changing lanes
  • Ignoring traffic signs/signals
  • And more

The wrongful conduct of negligent drivers can cause accidents in which unsuspecting, law-abiding road-users lose their lives. Families can be ripped apart. People going about their regular business could sustain life-altering injuries with permanent, devastating consequences.

But motor vehicle operators are not the only people who are legally responsible for safeguarding the physical well-being of others. In accordance with the provincial Occupiers’ Liability Act, people who own and/or occupy commercial or residential properties are required by law to take certain preventative measures to ensure the safety of people who visit their premises. If a property owner/occupier fails to regularly inspects and perform necessary maintenance around their premises, allowing unsafe hazards to go unaddressed, their actions could cause an unsuspecting visitor, neighbour, customer, employee, tenant, delivery agent, passerby, or other member of the community to sustain serious injuries in a slip and fall accident.

Examples of potentially dangerous maintenance issues that are often neglected on people’s commercial or residential properties include:

  • Improperly cleared ice and snow 
  • Spilled liquids 
  • Broken or missing handrails 
  • Poor lighting  
  • Wet floors 
  • Uneven surfaces 
  • Loose carpeting  
  • Cracked sidewalks 
  • Potholes 
  • Cluttered walkways 
  • Broken tiles 
  • And more 

When the people responsible for maintaining their properties fail to fulfill the duty of care they owe to others and injury-causing accidents ensue, they may be considered negligent. In those scenarios, the at-fault property owner/occupier may be liable for damages incurred by the injured accident victim.
