Intersection Accident Lawyers Serving The Greater Toronto Area
We are ready to help you recover the compensation you deserve
Toronto is a busy city, and there is often a lot of traffic at many intersections. When there are multiple cars traveling in different directions at a road crossing, it only takes one negligent driver to cause a car accident. If you were hurt in an intersection accident, you need an experienced lawyer you can trust.
Recovering financial compensation after a crash can be complicated. The experienced car accident lawyers at Smitiuch Injury Law are dedicated to helping the injured recover the compensation they deserve. Since our founding in 2001, we’ve recovered millions for clients through negotiated settlements and court verdicts.
Experienced Toronto car accident lawyers with a record of success
Intersections have at least two roads and each road usually has at least two lanes of traffic, traveling in opposite directions. Some cars are traveling straight through the intersection. Others are turning left or right. There can be a lot of activity, so it’s important for drivers to follow the rules of the road and pay close attention.
Intersection accidents can happen if a driver:
- Gets distracted
- Turns suddenly
- Ignores traffic signs and signals
- Misjudges the speed or distance of another vehicle
- Moves forward without a clear view of oncoming traffic
When there’s a crash at an intersection, drivers and passengers can suffer a wide range of injuries. These include whiplash, broken bones, lacerations, injuries to the neck, traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injuries. They may need surgery, hospitalization, medication and therapy. Recover may take months or longer. Some victims are left with a permanent disability.
Our lawyers know the physical and emotional impact an injury can have on victims and their families. We also understand that it can leave families in financial stress. Medical expenses can add up quickly, and the Ontario Health Insurance Plan may not cover all of them. Insurance companies are supposed to cover the rest, but they will try to pay you as little as possible.
