New Glasgow Personal Injury Lawyer


Preszler Injury Lawyers appreciate that recovering from an accidental injury is one of the most difficult challenges a person may face in their lives. We also understand how costly the process of recovery can be, how quickly injury-related expenses can start piling up, and how overwhelming everything can seem for people who have been seriously injured.

Traumatic accidents in the region often cause New Glasgow residents 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

If your injuries were caused by the negligence or wrongful conduct of another person, our injury lawyers serving New Glasgow may be able to recover financial compensation for expenses you have incurred or will incur as a result of your accident. Also referred to as economic damages, these expenses may include the costs of medical treatments, prescriptions, attendant care, and other financial losses arising from your injuries. Eligible clients may also be able to recover costs for lost wages if their injuries prevent them from returning to the workplace, as well as loss of future earning capacity.

Accidents that result in catastrophic injuries may rob survivors of their mobility, independence, and comfort. If another person’s negligence causes an accident victim to experience a diminished quality of life, our injury lawyers serving New Glasgow may be able to pursue non-economic damages on their behalf. It may be difficult to place a price tag on non-economic damages, like pain and suffering. However, the real-world effects of these damages often have an even greater impact on the lives of accident survivors than the quantifiable costs they have incurred.

In New Glasgow, most of the leading causes of injuries can be directly tied to the negligence of other parties. 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 instance, everyone who operates a motor vehicle in the province has a legal duty of care for other people on the road, including other drivers, cyclists and pedestrians. If a driver engages in illegal behaviour behind the wheel, they may be considered in breach of their duty of care and, therefore, negligent. 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

In addition to motor vehicle collisions, one of the region’s leading causes of injuries requiring hospitalizations are accidents that occur on or around other people’s commercial or residential properties. The 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

Because of another person’s failure to take the safety of other community members into consideration, accident victims can sustain severe physical injuries, psychological distress, and financial precariousness. At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we believe that no one should be forced to suffer the effects of someone else’s wrongful conduct. Our injury lawyers serving New Glasgow have experience helping members of the community who have sustained injuries in a variety of traumatic circumstances, 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
