Ontario Car Accident Attorney
Car accidents occur at an alarming rate across the country. And sadly, collisions involving vehicles can cause serious injuries, leaving victims to pick up the pieces of their lives while struggling with chronic pain and a damaged vehicle. Fortunately, those who are injured in traffic accidents as a result of someone else’s negligent or reckless conduct, often have the option of filing a claim against the at-fault party. Successful plaintiffs who can demonstrate a defendant’s negligence could then be eligible to recover damages compensating them for their collision-related losses. For help filing your own car accident claim, please contact an Ontario car accident attorney who has the resources and experience to help you present your case.
The type of collision in which a motorist is involved largely determines what type of injuries that he or she sustains. For instance, rear-end collisions tend to result in an inordinate number of neck and back injuries, such as whiplash, while sideswipe accidents often don’t result in any injuries at all, but cause significant vehicle damage. Motorists who are involved in side impact collisions, which are better known as T-bone crashes, on the other hand, are more likely to suffer from hearing loss, shoulder injuries, and head trauma than those who are injured in other types of crashes.
While it is true that some types of collisions, such as head-on crashes, are notorious for resulting in especially devastating injuries, the severity and kind of injury suffered by a motorist actually depends on a variety of factors, including:
- The general health of the car’s occupants;
- The age and sex of the occupants;
- The number of vehicles involved in the collision;
- The speed at which the vehicle or vehicles were traveling immediately prior to the crash;
- The size and type of cars involved in the crash;
- Whether the occupants were wearing seat belts; and
- Whether the motorists’ airbags deployed properly.
However serious a motorist’s injuries are, treating them can be prohibitively expensive, making it especially important for car accident victims to contact an experienced Ontario car accident attorney who can help them seek compensation for those costs.
It’s important to note that a person will only be able to recover damages for injuries that he or she sustained in an accident if that individual can provide proof that:
- The defendant had a duty to exercise reasonable care;
- The defendant breached that duty; and
- The defendant’s breach caused the plaintiff to suffer an injury.
Fulfilling these elements requires strong evidence, which could include everything from photographs from the scene of the accident and medical records to video recordings of the crash and eyewitness testimony. For help collecting evidence in your own case, please contact our legal team today.
