Personal Injury Claims In Toronto
Many people are aware that personal injury claims in Toronto for car accidents should be handled by an attorney specializing in that area of the law. However, personal injury lawyers also handle a number of other types of accidents that result in clients being unable to work or care for themselves, either temporarily or permanently.
If you have suffered an injury or if a physical condition has rendered you unable to function at full capacity, you may need to consult a personal injury law firm. An attorney specializing in this area will able to tell you what your rights are and will help you ascertain what fair compensation should be.
Types of Personal Injury Claims
Here are some of the circumstances where a personal injury lawyer will be able to help:
  • Car accidents. Consult a firm specializing in personal injury law if you have been injured in an auto accident. In Ontario, the "no-fault” system means that you are eligible for compensation even if your own negligence caused the accident. Even people with no insurance may be eligible for some type of compensation. Single vehicle accidents are also eligible. Injuries suffered in automobile accidents range from temporary whiplash to catastrophic brain injuries. A personal injury specialist can help you navigate the system while you concentrate on healing and recovery.
  • Pedestrian or bicycle accidents. Pedestrian accidents can occur on streets and roads, crosswalks and intersections, or in driveways and parking lots. Sometimes poor weather and inadequate lighting contribute to these types of incidents. Unfortunately, when pedestrians and cyclists are struck by cars, it often results in serious injuries.
  • Slip-and-fall incidents. One of the most common types of injuries in Ontario is the "slip and fall” or "trip and fall.” Provincial law says that private property owners, businesses and municipalities are responsible for maintaining areas of property open to the public. If it can be proven that the owner was negligent, he or she may be liable and you can receive compensation. Slip and falls include the classic ice or snow-related incidents, hazards on walkways such as objects, uneven paving, improper lighting and more, plus spills on the floors of grocery stores or other public areas. Even improperly maintained sidewalks can be considered hazardous and municipalities can be held responsible.
  • Dog bites. Fortunately, serious dog bites are rare, accounting for only about 1 per cent of accidents reported by the Canadian Hospital Incident Reporting and Prevention Program (CHIRPP). But when a dog attacks, the results can be devastating, both physically and emotionally. Most dog bites are on the face, which can leave victims permanently scarred. Emotional trauma can also lead to fear of all dogs, nightmares and anxiety. Dog owners in Ontario are responsible when their dogs attack.
