Sudden accidents are one of the leading causes of injury in Langford. According to the BC Injury Research and Prevention Unit, they impact more than 400,000 people throughout British Columbia each year. In many cases, they are due to reckless actions on the part of others, resulting in injuries that could have otherwise been prevented. Among the most common types of accidents in Langford are:
Injuries that can occur as the result of the above can be severe and potentially life threatening. They include soft tissue injuries, such as muscle strains, sprains, and tears, serious cuts, puncture wounds, and lacerations, broken bones and back or neck injuries, and head injuries resulting in concussion or traumatic brain injury.
While referred to as ‘accidents,’ these incidents are often the result of reckless and negligent conduct on the part of others. Under British Columbia law, the Negligence Act allows injured victims to hold these at-fault parties accountable. Examples accidents for which you may be entitled to compensation in a claim include:
In all of the above types of cases, you may be entitled to compensation through an insurance claim or injury lawsuit for the medical costs, lost wages, and other expenses you or your family members have incurred.
Depending on the type of accident you were involved in, the circumstances surrounding it, and the extent of your injuries, you may be entitled to compensation through the Insurance Company of British Columbia (ICBC), through a property owner or manager’s insurer, or even through your own policy. At Preszler Law, we carefully review all the details surrounding your claim, and can advise you on the best course of action.
