Saint John Accident Lawyer


When accidents happen in Saint John, lives can be lost, serious injuries can be sustained, and financial losses can be incurred. Accidents can happen to anyone, anywhere, and without warning. Regardless of whether the accident takes place behind the wheel of a motor vehicle, on the water, in nature, or on someone else’s property, victims may experience significant disruptions to their daily lives, or worse.

In Saint John, accident victims are frequently injured in circumstances created by another party’s negligence. Because of another person’s wrongful conduct, accident victims could require lengthy rehabilitation periods, expensive medical treatments, and structural adjustments to their living spaces to make them more accessible. Depending on the circumstances of the accident and the severity of injuries sustained, another person’s negligence could cause an unsuspecting Saint John resident to lose their mobility, independence, and normal quality of life.

Throughout the province, some of the most common causes of injuries requiring hospitalization are unintentional, traumatic, and avoidable accidents, including:

  • Car 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

No one can anticipate that, at one point in their lives, they will carry the physical, emotional, and financial burden of sustaining severe injuries in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence. When injuries prevent an accident victim from returning to their workplace for a prolonged period of time, they may have difficulty supporting themselves and their families while trying to afford their newly acquired, injury-related expenses.

At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we believe that no one should suffer physical trauma, emotional distress, or financial instability because of another person’s negligence. If you were injured in an accident caused by the wrongful conduct of another party or entity, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

If someone owes a legal duty of care to another individual, but fails to take reasonable actions to ensure their safety, their wrongful actions or actions may be considered negligent. Many people owe a duty of care to those around them, including anyone who owns or occupies a commercial or residential property.

In accordance with provincial law, property owners and/or occupiers are required to take reasonable steps to regularly maintain their premises and remove, repair, or warn guests about hazards on the property. Examples of hazards that often cause unsuspecting Saint John residents to sustain injuries requiring hospitalization 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 occupiers should be aware of maintenance issues on their premises because they are required by law to routinely inspect their properties and perform regular, ongoing upkeep. If a property owner/occupier was not aware of potentially dangerous hazards on their premises but should have been, unsuspecting visitors could be accidentally injured. Similarly, if the people responsible for ensuring the safety of the property’s visitors failed to remove or repair on-site hazards, or failed to provide sufficient warning to guests about dangerous maintenance issues on their premises, they may be considered negligent. If you were injured in an accident on someone else’s property, our Saint John accident lawyers may be able to help you prove that the owner/occupier’s negligence caused you to sustain your injuries and, therefore, they are responsible for providing you with financial compensation.

Additionally, all drivers in the province must always exercise caution when operating their vehicles, and drive according to the rules of the road. Failure to fulfill this legally mandated duty of care to others could lead to injury-causing accidents. If they do, the party responsible for causing the accident could be considered negligent and, by extension, liable for damages arising from injuries sustained because of the accident.

This is because, in accordance with provincial law, anyone who owns or operates a motor vehicle must take reasonable precautions behind the wheel to prevent others from sustaining injuries. To do so, they must comply with local traffic laws and drive in a responsible manner. If a driver violates provincial traffic laws, their negligence may cause serious accidents in which other drivers and passengers could be severely injured.

Some examples of negligence on the road that often leads to collisions and other injury-causing accidents in Saint John include:

  • Drinking and driving
  • Driving under the influence of drugs
  • Distracted driving
  • Texting while driving
  • Eating while driving
  • Speeding
  • Driving recklessly
  • Ignoring traffic signs/signals
  • Improper lane changes
  • And more

Although insured automobile operators who have been injured in collisions may be able to recover financial compensation in the form of accident benefits available through their insurance provider, oftentimes the amount of benefits available is not sufficient to cover an accident survivor’s total financial losses. In these circumstances, the assistance of our Saint John accident lawyers may prove crucial in helping you recover the compensation you are owed.

Regardless of where your accident took place, our car accident lawyers serving Saint John may be able to help you pursue a civil claim against the negligent party who caused you to sustain injuries in an accident. Our Saint John accident lawyers have a history of fighting on behalf of injured community members to help them recover the financial compensation to which they are entitled.
