New Waterford Accident Lawyer


When the negligence of another party or entity causes a traumatic accident, in a flash, a person’s life could be changed forever. In New Waterford, the victims of injurious accidents often sustain physical trauma, emotional upheaval, and financial distress.

Depending on the circumstances of the accident, the wrongful conduct of a negligent person could have severe, long-lasting consequences. In New Waterford, some of the leading causes of injuries requiring hospitalization 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

No matter where their accident occured, when the negligence of another party causes a New Waterford resident to sustain injuries, the road to recovery can be long, difficult, and very expensive. Injured survivors of traumatic accidents are often forced to endure lengthy periods of hospitalization, physical pain and discomfort, emotional challenges, and substantial financial losses, all because of someone else’s negligent behaviours.

If you were involved in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence and sustained compensable injuries as a result, you may be entitled to compensation. Our accident lawyers serving New Waterford are passionate about helping injured members of the local community in their pursuits of accountability and restitution. If you were injured because of someone else’s wrongful behaviour, by working with our New Waterford accident lawyers, you may be able to recover the costs of damages you have incurred because of your injuries. 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

In the immediate aftermath of an injurious accident, it can be difficult to know which party was responsible for causing the traumatic event to occur. How do accident victims determine whether their injuries were the result of another party’s negligence?

Throughout the province, countless community members owe a duty of care to the people around them. However, certain individuals often fail to fulfill this duty of care by engaging in wrongful, unlawful behaviours. When certain people violate provincial legislation, even for the briefest of moments, the outcome can be dire. Accidents can happen in the blink of an eye. By shirking one’s duty of care, the lives of innocent accident victims can be lost. Those who survive traumatic accidents could sustain severe, debilitating injuries because of a complete stranger’s failure to uphold their duty of care.

Indeed, many strangers across the province owe each other a duty of care. As a matter of fact, in accordance with provincial legislation, many individuals have a legal responsibility to take reasonable measures to protect the safety of others.

For example, the people who own or occupy commercial or residential properties have an obligation to regularly inspect and maintain their premises as a way of actively reducing the risks of their guests sustaining injuries in on-site accidents. Failure to remove, repair, or sufficiently warn visitors about hazardous maintenance issues on the premises can lead to injury-causing accidents. In these cases, the property owner/occupier who failed to take appropriate preventative measures may be considered negligent. Therefore, the at-fault property owner/occupier may be responsible for providing financial compensation to the people injured by their negligence.

Common examples of potentially hazardous maintenance issues that, if left unaddressed, could cause unsuspecting visitors to sustain injuries in an accident 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

Property owners/occupiers are not the only people in the province who owe a duty of care to other citizens with whom they may not have a previous relationship. In accordance with provincial legislation, anyone who drives a motor vehicle on the province’s roads and highways is required by law to exercise a reasonable degree of caution behind the wheel and comply with all traffic laws at all times. Traffic laws exist to keep road-users safe from preventable injuries. If a driver violates any number of traffic laws and an accident ensues as a result, their wrongful conduct on the road could profoundly affect the lives of unsuspecting accident victims.

In New Waterford, 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

Car accident victims who sustain serious injuries in collisions caused by another driver’s negligence often face monumental challenges, including significant financial losses. In these cases, the negligent driver who failed to fulfill their duty of care may be obligated to compensate injured accident victims for damages they have incurred as a result of their collision.

If the wrongful conduct of another party or entity resulted in an accident in which you sustained injuries, you may be eligible to pursue a civil claim in order to recover damages you have incurred or will incur in the future.
