Edmundston Personal Injury Lawyer


If you live or work in Edmundston and someone else’s negligence caused you to sustain serious injuries in an accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

Our Edmundston injury lawyers have a history of fighting on behalf of injured survivors of car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, off-highway vehicle accidents, boating accidents, slip and fall accidents, and other traumatic events. When accidents occur, unsuspecting Edmundston residents can sustain injuries ranging in severity from moderate to catastrophic. Common examples of injuries sustained by the survivors of traumatic accidents in the region 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

In the shocking aftermath of an injury-causing accident, it can be difficult to know which steps to take next. That is why Preszler Injury Lawyers offer a free initial consultation to all prospective clients in Edmundston.

If you have suffered financial losses because of your accident and are uncertain if any options for financial compensation may be available to you, our injury lawyers serving Edmundston may be able to provide you with useful assistance and advice. We appreciate the physical, emotional, and financial challenges associated with recovering from serious injuries, and handle all aspects of our clients’ claims so they can focus on healing.

If you are eligible to file a lawsuit against the party responsible for causing your accident, our Edmundston injury lawyers may be able to compile thorough evidence proving that your injuries were the result of their negligence or wrongful conduct.

Negligence occurs when a person or entity fails to uphold the duty of care they are responsible for providing to someone else and an injury-causing accident ensues as a result. Injured accident victims do not need to have a pre-existing relationship with the at-fault party in order to be owed a duty of care. As a matter of fact, many strangers in the province owe one another a duty of care and are legally required to take reasonable measures to protect the safety of their fellow community members.

Anyone who drives on the province’s roads, for example, has a duty to do so in accordance with local traffic laws and with a reasonable degree of caution in order to reduce the risks of injurious accidents. If a driver violates any number of traffic laws, they have essentially neglected their duty of care to other road-users, potentially putting other drivers, passengers, motorcycle riders, cyclists, pedestrians, and other community members in harm’s way. If their wrongful conduct leads to an accident in which other road-users sustain injuries, the at-fault driver 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

In addition to motor vehicle operators, property owners and occupiers throughout the province owe a duty of care to the people who visit their premises. In fact, in accordance with provincial legislation, it is incumbent upon the owners and occupiers to routinely inspect and perform maintenance on their commercial or residential properties to reduce the risk of injury-causing accidents.

Occupiers could be landlords, tenants, property managers, landscaping professionals, custodians, or other people who control access to the space and are responsible for its upkeep. Property occupiers and/or owners are responsible for quickly and sufficiently addressing on-site maintenance issues that could lead to accidental injuries. If a property owner/occupier fails to adequately repair, remove, or warn visitors about dangerous on-site issues and an accident ending in injuries occurs, the at-fault property owner/occupier may be considered negligent.

Some common examples of potentially dangerous maintenance issues that could lead to injurious 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

By presenting compelling evidence, our Edmundston injury lawyers may be able to prove that the negligent party or entity is liable for damages you incurred or will incur in the future because of their wrongful behaviour. This evidence may include:

  • Medical records
  • Expert testimonies
  • Eyewitness statements
  • Police reports
  • Video surveillance footage
  • Photos of the accident scene
  • And possibly more

After sustaining serious injuries in a traumatic accident, unexpected expenses can start piling up quickly. Accident survivors may incur expensive costs of medical care, physical therapy, attendant care, equipment, and other adjusted living expenses as a result of the at-fault party’s negligence. On top of that, if injuries they have sustained keep them from returning to the workplace, accident survivors may suffer financial losses due to lost work, as well as reduced future earning capacity. If you are eligible to pursue a civil claim against the negligent party that caused your accident, our injury lawyers serving Edmundston may be able to help you recover these economic costs.

When accidents end in catastrophic injuries, in the blink of an eye, the course of an accident victim’s entire life can be altered. Permanent, debilitating injuries have far-reaching consequences, often impacting the accident victim’s family members and loved ones. When accident survivors are forced to endure a diminished quality of life because of someone else’s negligence, our Edmundston injury lawyers may be able to help them recover financial compensation for non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering.
