Toronto Distracted Driving Accident Lawyers
If you’ve been injured in the GTA, we can help you recover compensation
One of the first things that drivers learn is to keep their eyes on the road at all times. Many drivers allow themselves to become distracted. Far too often, the result is a serious crash that leaves victims injured. If a negligent driver was responsible for your injuries, the experienced car accident lawyers at Smitiuch Injury Law can help.
Distracted driving is very dangerous behaviour – and is against the law in Ontario. Still, many drivers don’t think it’s a big deal, because they are only looking away from the road for a few seconds. A lot can happen in those few seconds. For example, another car can pull out in front of them, or a car in front of them can come to a sudden stop. If a driver is not paying attention, a collision can easily happen.
Our car accident lawyers build strong cases that get results
There are many different examples of distracted driving. While behind the wheel, distracted drivers may be:
- Talking on the phone
- Operating any type of electronic device
- Talking to passengers in the car
- Eating or drinking
- Checking their appearance in the mirror
- Adjusting dashboard controls
- Using a GPS
By the time a distracted driver looks back at the road and sees a crash is about to happen, it’s often too late to prevent it. That can cause serious consequences for the drivers and passengers in other vehicles. The result is often serious injuries that can impact victims and their families physically, emotionally and financially.
Distracted driving accidents can leave victims with injuries that range from broken bones and lacerations to serious injuries to the head and back. You may need surgery, hospitalization, medication and physical therapy. Some victims take months or longer to recover, while others are left with a permanent disability.
When a distracted driver caused the accident that left you hurt, you deserve compensation. Recovering compensation can be a complicated process. Drivers often deny that they were distracted, or they may blame you for causing the crash. Insurance companies will use any excuse to pay you as little as possible.
