Establishing negligence in a tort claim can be challenging

Ontario residents who have suffered loss or harm due to another person's wrongdoing may not realize that they may have grounds to seek recovery of damages. The victim may file a tort claim in a civil court against the person who is deemed to be financially responsible. However, for any personal injury claim to be successful, the plaintiff must establish negligence on the part of the defendant. It must also be shown that the defendant's negligence was the proximate cause of the plaintiff's injuries.

Impatience, gap shooting and other causes of car accidents

While many Ontario drivers may think drunk driving, speeding and texting cause most crashes, other more fundamental drivers' errors are often to blame. While it is true that distracted driving causes many car accidents, it is not only mobile devices that cause distractions. Anything that diverts the attention of the driver can cause a devastating crash in the blink of an eye. It could be attending to a child in the rear seat, admiring the surrounding landscapes and more.

Car accidents: Doctors to avoid prescribing marijuana to truckers

Following up on our post about commercial truck drivers using marijuana on Aug. 29, 2017 ("Car accidents: How will legalizing marijuana affect road safety?"), trucking authorities are now asking for more oversight. The Canadian Trucking Alliance is concerned about the number of drugs that are prescribed to truck drivers by medical practitioners. CTA warns that truckers in Ontario and other provinces have safety-sensitive jobs as they share their work environments with the public, and drug impairment can lead to devastating car accidents when commercial trucks are involved.

Social media activities can jeopardize claims after car accidents

Ontario victims of personal injury in auto crashes are advised to think twice before hitting the "post" button, sharing, liking, accepting friend requests and being tagged on social media. Most people's lives have become public on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media platforms. However, personal injury claims after car accidents can be derailed by a single social media post.
