New Glasgow Accident Lawyer

Actions have consequences. When people fail to consider how their wrongful behaviours could impact others, innocent community members in New Glasgow could suffer the consequences. Accidents in the region are frequently the result of someone else’s failure to consider the safety of others. When negligent individuals fail to uphold their duties of care to the people around them, serious accidents can occur. Lives can be lost as a result, and severe injuries can be sustained, all because of someone else’s negligence.

Many people have responsibilities to one another. Actions have consequences, and when someone’s wrongful actions are responsible for causing another person harm, they should be held accountable for their conduct. That is why, if someone failed to fulfill the duty of care owed to you and you sustained injuries as a result, our accident lawyers serving New Glasgow may be able to help in your pursuit of accountability and restitution.

Our New Glasgow accident lawyers have a history of providing crucial legal advice and assistance to members of the local community who have been injured in a number of traumatic incidents, including:

  • 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

When injurious accidents are the result of another person’s negligence, accident victims may be entitled to financial compensation from the at-fault party who neglected to fulfill the duty of care they owed them. Even if the at-fault party is a complete stranger and has no pre-existing relationship to the accident victim whatsoever, they may legally owe them a duty of care. In fact, countless strangers owe duties of care to their fellow citizens, community members, neighbours, and others.

For example, the owners and occupiers of both commercial and residential properties are required by law to routinely inspect and maintain their premises as a way of actively preventing accidents from occuring. By doing so, property owners/occupiers are taking reasonable steps to keep their visitors from sustaining injuries as the result of accidents on the premises.

If the people responsible for keeping their premises safe fail to quickly and thoroughly address potentially dangerous maintenance issues on their property, they may be considered negligent. Since property owners/occupiers are obligated to regularly inspect their premises, they should be aware of hazards on-site. When they become aware that a problem exists, they are obligated to address the matter appropriately, either by removing or repairing it, or providing guests with adequate warning about it.

Accidents on someone else’s property frequently occur because the people responsible for maintaining the premises neglect to address dangerous hazards on-site. Common examples of often-neglected hazards 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

When property owners and/or occupiers fail to remove, sufficiently repair, or adequately warn visitors about the risks associated with hazardous maintenance issues on their premises and an accident occurs as a result, they may be considered negligent. Therefore, the at-fault parties may be responsible for providing financial compensation to the people injured by their negligence.

Property owners/occupiers are not the only people in New Glasgow who are legally required to provide a duty of care to the people around them. In fact, in accordance with provincial legislation, all drivers on the province’s roads and highways owe a duty of care to other road-users, including the occupants of other vehicles, motorcycle riders, bicyclists, and pedestrians. If a driver fails to operate their vehicle in a safe manner and an injurious collision with another road-user occurs as a result of their traffic law violation, the at-fault driver may be considered negligent.

Traffic laws exist to keep others safe from preventable injuries. Violations of these traffic laws could cause severe accidents with lifelong effects on an unsuspecting victim. In New Glasgow, common traffic law violations that could cause injurious car accidents include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Excessive speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Failing to obey traffic signs/signals
  • Texting while driving
  • And other violations of traffic laws

When serious accidents are caused by another party or entity’s negligence, injured victims may face significant challenges. Depending on the severity of the injuries they have sustained, the injured survivors of traumatic accidents may find themselves struggling physically, emotionally, and financially.

Recovering from serious injuries can be a long, challenging, and expensive process. Injured accident victims are often required to go to great expense to pay for necessary medical treatments and other lifestyle adjustments in order to adequately address their newly acquired injuries.

If someone else’s negligence caused you to sustain injuries in an accident, our accident lawyers serving New Glasgow may be able to help you recover the costs of damages you have incurred as a result, as well as damages you will incur in the future. These damages may include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • In-home attendant care
  • Lost wages due to missed work
  • Reduced future earning capacity
  • Adjusted living expenses
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • And possibly more
