Trenton Personal Injury Lawyer

The negligence of others can have severe consequences. Depending on the situation, when people behave in an unlawful manner, their actions could directly impact another person’s life. By engaging in wrongful conduct, certain negligent parties can, indeed, put the lives of others at risk or cause them to sustain serious injuries.

Accidents that culminate in physical injuries are often the result of someone else’s failure to uphold their duty of care. In fact, many people throughout the province owe a duty of care to others, often without even realizing it. In accordance with various provincial legislations, certain people have a legally mandated responsibility to take reasonable precautions to ensure the safety of others. 

For example, 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.

Similarly, anyone who owns or operates a motor vehicle throughout the province is required to practice caution behind the wheel and obey the rules governing the use of their vehicle. If a driver engages in unlawful behaviour while their vehicle is in motion, unsuspecting accident victims could lose their lives in a collision, or sustain severe, even catastrophic injuries. If a driver’s wrongful actions, inactions, errors, omissions, or other violations of traffic laws causes an accident in which another road-user is injured, the at-fault motorist might be considered negligent. 

Common examples of driver negligence that often cause injurious collisions in and around Trenton include:

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

Negligent drivers whose wrongful conduct results in an injury-causing accident may be liable for damages incurred by the injured victims of collisions resulting from their unlawful behaviour. If a driver’s violation of traffic laws causes another road-user to sustain compensable injuries, they may be required to compensate the injured victim for certain damages, often including:

  • 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

Working with a Trenton Personal Injury Lawyer 

Accidents can happen to anyone at any time. Most often, injury-causing accidents happen when you least expect them. Even activities as seemingly harmless as strolling down the sidewalk, riding your bike to work, returning to your vehicle in a parking lot, driving your kids to school, or descending a flight of stairs at an office building can have severe outcomes when disrupted by the wrongful actions of another party. Although the locations, physical conditions, and circumstances of traumatic accidents can differ greatly from one another, regardless of where or how these incidents occur, they are frequently the result of someone else’s negligence.
