If you've been in a car accident, you need a car accident lawyer. Our car accident lawyers will advise you on your rights and can help you make your car accident claim. You may make a preliminary assessment on your car accident here.Question 1: Were you involved in a car accident?
In order for us to file a successful car accident claim on your behalf, you must have been involved in and injured by a car accident. You may have been the driver, a passenger, a pedestrian, a cyclist, or another person injured by the negligence of someone driving a car or other motor vehicle.Question 2: Were you injured in a car accident?
It is important that you were injured in the accident. If you were uninjured or just had some bruises, your lawsuit may belong to a small claim at the Small Claims Tribunal. Lawyers are not entitled to represent you in a small claim.
However, if you sustained serious injuries because of the accident and you required hospitalization and/ or ongoing medical care, or if you've become permanently disabled due to the accident, you may have a valid legal claim against the driver and owner of the vehicle.Question 3: Was the car accident the result of the driver's negligence?
Failure to use reasonable care while driving a motor vehicle amounts negligence. Determining who was at fault in a motor vehicle accident means figuring out who was negligent, and thus responsible for causing the accident. Negligence is often indicated by disobeying traffic signs or signals, failure to signal when turning, failure to follow the speed limit, or driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. If your injuries are the result of a driver's negligence, you are more likely to have a solid claim.Common Examples of Driver's Negligence
- Cutting in front
- Failing to watch blind spots
- Inattentive drivers
- Playing squeeze drive
- Aggressive drivers
- Drink and drive
