Sackville Accident Lawyer


After being injured in an unexpected, traumatic accident, it can be difficult to know what steps to take next. Navigating the medical system can be an overwhelming process, and re-adjusting to life with serious injuries can be isolating, demoralizing, and expensive. Accident victims who were injured because of the wrongful conduct of another party or entity may find themselves paying the high physical, emotional, and monetary price of someone else’s negligence.

In and around Sackville, accidents caused by negligent behaviour often have fatal consequences. Innocent, unsuspecting community members can be killed by someone else’s failure to consider the consequences of their actions. Unfortunately, accidents can happen in the blink of an eye. If the people who have a responsibility to ensure someone else’s safety let their guard down for even the briefest of moments, innocent lives can be lost. The injured survivors of traumatic accidents could be forced to deal with the repercussions of someone else’s negligence for the rest of their days.

Accidents can happen when you least expect them. In fact, many accidents resulting in injuries that require hospitalization occur while performing the most routine activities like driving home from work or walking across an icy parking lot. Oftentimes, injured accident victims blame themselves for their misfortunes, believing that their inattentiveness or lack of caution was ultimately the cause of their injurious accident. However, even though it may not be apparent in the immediate aftermath of an accident, many injury-causing, traumatic incidents that occur locally are the result of another party or entity’s negligence.

In accordance with various provincial legislation, many people throughout the province owe a duty of care to other community members. Frequently, these community members are people with whom the responsible party has no personal, professional, or pre-existing relationship.

For example, the people who own and/or occupy commercial or residential properties owe a duty of care to their premises’ visitors. They are required to routinely inspect their property and carry out regular maintenance as required, in order to reduce the risk of harm to human health. If a property owner/occupier knows about a potentially dangerous maintenance issue on their premises (or should know about it), but does nothing to fix it or warn their guests about it, unsuspecting visitors to the premises could be seriously injured in an accident.

Accidents on other people’s property are a leading cause of injuries requiring hospitalization in the region. These accidents are often the result of seemingly commonplace, unaddressed maintenance issues, including:

  • 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

Besides the owners/occupiers of properties, throughout the province, there are many other people who are legally obligated to take precautions to safeguard the physical well-being of other community members. For instance, anyone who drives a motor vehicle on the province’s roads and highways is required to adhere to local traffic laws and operate their vehicles in a safe, cautious manner. If a driver shirks the duty of care they owe to other road-users by engaging in various forms of wrongful conduct, their negligence could lead to an injury-causing collision.

Some common violations of traffic laws that frequently lead to serious collisions 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 more

Negligent motor vehicle operators whose illegal actions cause injurious car accidents may be liable for damages incurred by the people injured in the collision. These at-fault drivers may be responsible for providing them with financial compensation for the losses they sustained as a result of the injuries they acquired in the accident.

Therefore, if you were injured in a motor vehicle collision caused by another driver’s negligence, our car accident lawyersserving Sackville may be able to provide crucial assistance in your pursuit of accountability and restitution. By working with our Sackville accident lawyers, you may be able to pursue a civil claim against the negligent party whose failure to uphold the duty of care they owed you caused you to sustain injuries.

The injured victims of traumatic accidents often find themselves struggling to balance their newly acquired, injury-related expenses with their regular monthly expenses. This is especially true for accident survivors who cannot continue working because of the injuries they have sustained. Injured accident victims often incur substantial financial losses. These may be related to:

  • Medical care
  • Physiotherapy
  • Attendant care, live-in support
  • Mobility aids
  • Assistive medical equipment
  • Prescription medications
  • Lifestyle adjustments
  • Home modifications to accommodate accessibility needs
  • Ambulance services
  • Mileage expenses to and from medical appointments
  • Psychological counselling
