Has the negligence of another person or entity caused you to sustain serious injuries? If so, our injury lawyers serving Campbellton may be able to help you pursue financial compensation.
Often, when Campbellton residents think of negligent behaviour, the first thing that comes to mind is wrongful conduct behind the wheel of a car, truck, snowmobile, or other motor vehicle. Indeed, in accordance with various provincial legislations, the operators of these types of motor vehicles are required by law to fulfill a duty of care to others.
For example, according to the province’s Motor Vehicle Act, anyone who drives a car on the province’s roads must do so with a reasonable degree of caution in order to reduce the risks of injurious accidents. Violations of local traffic law could put other drivers, passengers, motorcycle riders, cyclists, pedestrians, and other community members in harm’s way. If a driver violates the rules of the road and a collision ensues as a result, the driver responsible for causing the accident could be considered negligent.
Common examples of driver negligence that often lead to serious collisions 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
If a driver engages in negligent behaviour on the road, their actions could cause an accident in which other people lose their lives or sustain severe injuries. If this happens, the at-fault drivers may be responsible for financially compensating injured accident victims for the damages they sustained as a result of the motor vehicle collision.
While the negligence of motor vehicle operators is often immediately apparent in the aftermath of a traumatic accident, in some cases, it can be difficult to determine whether an accident was the result of someone else’s wrongful conduct. However, even in these scenarios, if an injurious accident occurred because of someone else’s failure to uphold the duty of care they were legally required to fulfill, the at-fault party may be liable for resulting damages.
For example, the negligence of a property owner or the company responsible for its maintenance may create hazardous conditions for visitors to the premises. If these hazardous conditions cause an accident in which an unsuspecting guest suffers serious injuries, the negligent party may be responsible to compensate them for damages they have incurred as a result.
That is because, like the operators of any motor vehicle in the province, property owners/occupiers have a legal obligation to provide a reasonable duty of care to the people who visit their premises. When dangerous maintenance issues in or around commercial or residential properties are not adequately removed or repaired, or when visitors are not properly warned about on-site hazards that may lead to injuries, substantial, life-altering accidents can occur.
Some examples of on-site hazards issues that often lead to traumatic, injury-causing accidents on someone else’s premises include:
- Uncleared ice and snow
- Spilled liquids
- Broken or missing handrails
- Poor lighting
- Wet floors
- Uneven surfaces
- Loose carpeting
- Cracked sidewalks
- Cluttered walkways
- Broken tiles
- And more
Nobody expects to be involved in an accident when driving their children to school, shopping at a department store, or walking through a snowy parking lot. However, the fact remains that even the most cautious Campbellton residents are vulnerable to the wrongful conduct of others. When unsuspecting people are injured while performing routine activities, in an instant, their lives can be completely changed.
The injuries commonly sustained by the victims of traumatic accidents often range in severity from moderate to catastrophic. Injuries resulting from accidents caused by another party’s negligence often include:
- Broken or fractured bones
- Whiplash and other soft tissue injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Sprains and strains
- Musculoskeletal injuries
- Internal bleeding
- Organ damage
- Fractured ribs
- Neck and back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic amputations
- And more
