Amherst Personal Injury Lawyer


The wrongful behaviours and actions of negligent parties or entities can lead to severe, life-altering, injury-causing accidents. In Amherst, traumatic accidents often cause unsuspecting victims to sustain a number 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

After sustaining serious injuries in an accident, Amherst residents may be eligible to pursue financial compensation with the assistance of Preszler Injury Lawyers. Our injury lawyers serving Amherst have a history of representing clients who have sustained injuries in a variety of manners. We work on behalf of the injured community members we represent and fight to help them recover the compensation to which they may be entitled.

Local community members often sustain injuries in traumatic situations caused by the negligence of another party or entity. These commonly include:

  • Car accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Snowmobile accidents
  • ATV accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Scooter accidents
  • E-bike accidents
  • And more

Injurious, preventable accidents can substantially impact the physical, emotional, and financial well-being of the people involved. Oftentimes, injured accident survivors face challenging periods of medical recovery, emotional trauma, and significant financial losses as a result of the injuries they have sustained.

These financial losses may be related to newly acquired costs of medical care and treatments, lost income because of an inability to work, loss of future earning capacity, and other costs incurred as a result of injuries sustained by accident victims. These costs may include:

  • 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
  • And possibly more

Injured Amherst residents may feel the repercussions of their accident for years to come. Many injured accident survivors struggle to cope with their regular financial obligations in addition to their newly acquired, injury-related costs. This is especially true for accident victims whose injuries prevent them from continuing to work. In an instant, the negligence of another person can significantly impact the physical well-being, emotional health, and financial security of another Amherst resident.

If you have been injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, our Amherst injury lawyers may be able to work on your behalf and file a claim for damages against the at-fault party. By presenting a robust portfolio of evidence, Preszler Injury Lawyers may be able to prove that your injuries were a direct result of another party’s negligence.

Negligence occurs in situations where one party or entity owes a duty of care to others, but fails to uphold that duty. Countless people owe one another a duty of care. By failing to fulfill this duty of care, the people responsible for causing injurious accidents may be considered negligent.

For example, people who own, manage, or oversee residential or commercial properties have a legal obligation to provide a reasonably safe experience for all visitors to the premises, including tenants, employees, customers, and guests. If the person or people responsible for identifying and removing potential hazards on the property that may cause harm to one of their visitors fails to address these dangerous maintenance issues, they have failed to fulfill their duty of care. As a result, they may be considered negligent and, therefore, liable for injuries arising from accidents caused by their failure to keep the premises safe.

Unaddressed maintenance issues may sound harmless, but in actuality, they can cause unsuspecting people to sustain severe injuries in traumatic accidents. Some examples of hazardous maintenance issues that often lead to serious, injury-causing accidents on someone else’s property include:

  • Uncleared 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

Similarly, people who operate motor vehicles like cars, trucks, motorcycles, and off-highway vehicles have a duty of care to the other road users, including other drivers and their passengers, pedestrians, and cyclists. Motorists may shirk their duty of care by engaging in illegal behaviour. If their actions, inactions, errors, omissions, or otherwise wrongful behaviour causes an accident in which injuries are sustained, the negligent driver may be considered liable for resulting damages.

Common examples of traffic law violations that may constitute driver negligence include:

  • Texting while driving
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Speeding excessively
  • Driving recklessly
  • Distracted driving
  • Ignoring traffic signals/signs
  • And more
