Motor Vehicle Accidents

Waterloo Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyers

According to the most recent Canadian Transportation Safety Board statistics, there are approximately 160,000 motor vehicle accidents every year, nearly 3,000 of which turn out to be fatal.  Sadly, a large percentage of these accidents could’ve been avoided were it not for the careless or negligent actions of the at-fault driver.  Depending on the nature and extent of a person’s injuries, their recovery can be emotionally, financially, and physically challenging.

Causes of Motor Vehicle Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents can occur unexpectedly under different circumstances.  So, it’s important for people to understand the types of negligence that could lead to filing a personal injury claim or lawsuit with BLW Injury Law Firm.  Some of the more common causes of motor vehicle accidents include:

  • Design or manufacturing flaws of the vehicle and/or any of its components
  • Distracted or inattentive driving (eating, talking or texting on your cell phone, etc.)
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or controlled substances
  • Erratic lane changes
  • Errors in judgment
  • Failure to react to changes in road conditions and/or the weather
  • Improperly loaded cargo in commercial trucks
  • Motorist fatigue
  • Not stopping for stop signs or traffic signals
  • Reckless driving or speeding

An experienced personal injury lawyer in Waterloo and their legal team knows that no two motor vehicle accidents are the same and neither are the personal injury claims that arise from them.  When you or a loved one has been seriously injured in an accident, we understand how to gather critical evidence and make use of our vast knowledge to build a strong case on your behalf.

What Types of Accident Benefits are available?

There should be a clause in your insurance policy that defines the benefits that are available in the event of an accident.  Even if you’re the at-fault driver, you can claim these benefits, hence the name “no-fault” accident benefits.  There are several types of accident benefits available to you including:

  • — Attendant care benefits
  • — caregiver benefits
  • — home maintenance and housekeeping benefits
  • — income replacement benefits
  • — medical and rehabilitative benefits

Unfortunately, many accident benefits claims are rejected at first.  BLW Injury Law Firm understands how challenging this can be during the recovery period.  You’re facing lost income and the potential loss of future earnings, medical expenses, property damage, and several other issues, all of which can be overwhelming.  Your injury lawyer in Waterloo and their legal assistants are prepared to interact with other lawyers and the insurance companies on your behalf in order to maximize your settlement.
