You may be a person who practices safe driving, such as keeping within speed limits, using snow tires in the winter and never using your cell phone while driving. Such safe practices have been proven to reduce accident risk but, unfortunately, do not eliminate it. Every year in Kingston, individuals become victims of accidents, as pedestrians or vehicle passengers; some slip or fall on icy sidewalks or roads; others may be injured at a recreational facility.
In many cases, individuals are injured through no fault of their own. When drivers use poor judgement by driving while distracted or under the influence of alcohol or drugs, accidents are far more likely. They put others at risk. The outcome of these poor decisions may range from minor injuries to innocent victims and damage to vehicles, to more serious injuries, and even death. The wrongful death of a loved one can put family members in a bad financial situation, while having to deal with the trauma of losing a loved one. You need legal advice and assistance to help you through this difficult time.
Serious injury also puts a strain on families. Often, a family member is no longer able to work, either temporarily or permanently. Family members spend significant time visiting their loved one in a hospital, supporting them as they convalesce, and taking on extra duties to keep the household functioning. Even those injured individuals who are themselves able to return to their jobs often require physiotherapy and other kinds of medical treatments. There may be ongoing pain that changes the quality of life forever for these victims.
