Restigouche County Accident Lawyer


When residents of Restigouche County are involved in traumatic accidents, in an instant, their lives could be changed forever. The repercussions of a serious injury-causing accident can be life-changing and all-encompassing, affecting every aspect of an injured person’s life. Physical pain and discomfort, emotional and psychological challenges, financial losses and accumulated debts are all too common consequences of surviving an accident.

In Restigouche County, injuries requiring hospitalization are frequently the result of preventable accidents resulting from another party or entity’s wrongful conduct. Residents, labourers, tourists, and other visitors to the region can be injured in a variety of unintentional, avoidable, and traumatic incidents, including:

  • Car accidents
  • Industrial accidents
  • Logging accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Snowmobile accidents
  • ATV accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Scooter accidents
  • E-bike accidents
  • And more

Clearly, accidents can happen to anyone in any number of circumstances. Although the conditions of accidents throughout the region may differ, oftentimes, they share one common element. Accidents in Restigouche County that culminate in serious injuries are often caused by another party’s negligence.

Certain people or entities throughout the province have a legal obligation to provide a reasonable degree of care to the people around them. You do not need to have a pre-existing relationship with another person to owe them a duty of care. In fact, countless people throughout the province owe duties of care to people with whom they will never interact face-to-face.

According to provincial legislation, property owners and/or occupiers are responsible for reasonably ensuring the safety of anyone who visits their premises. In these situations, property occupiers may be landlords, property managers, tenants, maintenance professionals, or anyone who controls access to the space. The people responsible for the safety of visitors to the property have a legal obligation to routinely inspect and maintain their premises, addressing hazardous issues that could lead to physical injuries. If a property’s owner and/or its occupier knows about a hazard on their premises– or should know about it– but fails to adequately repair it, remove it, or warn guests about it, they may be considered negligent.

Unaddressed or insufficiently repaired maintenance issues on or around commercial or residential properties could lead to injurious accidents. Examples of common hazards that often lead to accidents 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 and/or occupiers do not need to have a personal relationship with customers, employees, tenants, guests, passersby, and other people injured by improperly maintained hazards while visiting their premises in order to be considered negligent. Their lack of regard for other people’s safety could cause any number of unsuspecting visitors to sustain severe injuries. If their wrongful actions or inactions caused an accident in which visitors were physically harmed, the negligent property owners/occupiers may be liable for financial losses incurred by the injured parties as a result.

Property owners/occupiers are not the only people in the province who are required to provide a duty of care to others. In fact, in accordance with provincial legislation, anyone who owns or operates a motor vehicle must take reasonable precautions behind the wheel to ensure that other road-users will not be harmed because of their behaviour.

If a driver fails to uphold their duty of care by violating traffic laws and a collision occurs because of their disregard for the rules of the road, the offending driver may be considered negligent. Common examples of driver negligence that frequently cause car accidents in Restigouche County 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

If a driver’s wrongful behaviour behind the wheel causes a traumatic accident, other drivers, passengers, pedestrians, cyclists, and other road-users can lose their lives in senseless, violent, and preventable collisions. They could also sustain severe physical injuries, often requiring hospitalization, expensive costs of medical treatment, and substantial lifestyle adjustments. If the offending driver’s negligence was a contributing factor to their accident, they may be found responsible for providing injured accident survivors with financial compensation for damages arising from injuries they sustained.

Depending on the circumstances of your accident and the severity of your injuries, our Restigouche County accident lawyers may be able to help you recover the costs of damages you have incurred or will incur in the future.
