Ontario Accident Lawyer & Attorney – Car, Auto, Truck, Motorcycle

Being involved in a motor-vehicle accident can be traumatic. Vehicles involved in the collision could be cars, trucks, autos, motorcycles etc, causing damage to the vehicles/property and injuries to people. The injured should be given emergency medical attention at the nearest medical facility by calling 911 emergency-services and informing them about the collision and location. If injuries and damage are minor, many people are tempted to swiftly settle matters mutually among themselves and leave the scene of the accident. This can be risky, because minor injuries and damage to vehicles may be more severe than initially imagined. Insurance companies and the nearest Collision Reporting Center must be informed and accident report is completed and the damage is documented. Otherwise drivers run the risk of the accident being declared as hit-and-run and/or their insurance premium being considerably raised.

Wrongful Birth Lawsuits

A child with serious birth defects which could be some genetic disorder may be difficult for the parents and family to handle. Some parents would have preferred the chance to avoid the situation if they were notified early in the pregnancy with proper detection since technology is very advanced today in the medical field.

Parents and Child’s Perspective

Grieving or challenged parents with a child that has severe genetic disorders may feel cheated in life for not having the option to avoid the pregnancy. These parents are very burdened with a child born with birth defects especially when their obstetrician or gynaecologist could have or should have detected the condition early in their pregnancy.

A child born with severe genetic disorders is not only a burden to the family but him or herself. Depending on the type of disorder, pain and suffering may come on bringing great discomfort to the child. This would tear the parents’ hearts to see the agony and helplessness of the child as they are unable to relieve their child of the hopelessness in life. Great struggles beset the family as caring for such a child is very challenging and draining in energy and time.

Many nations may offer parents an alternative through a legal abortion to relieve the parents from bearing such a heavy load and emotional suffering. However, negligence may crop up through the obstetrician to invoke a wrongful birth.

Wrongful Birth in the Medical Arena

A wrongful birth refers to the birth of a child which should not have had happened. This would probably be due to the severe birth defects or genetic disorders which the child is inflicted with to have a meaningful and normal life. A wrongful birth could happen when the doctor failed to detect some abnormality in the foetus during pregnancy which should be detected using the latest scientific technological tools in the medical field.

Doctors or obstetricians who did not execute careful checks on the expectant mother or growing foetus could easily miss a severe birth defect if they were callous about the pregnancy. It is possible to miss genetic disorders if:

  • Doctors are general practitioners and not trained obstetricians
  • Doctors have little experience in genetic disorder cases
  • Over-confident obstetricians who assumed a normal pregnancy for all expectant mothers
  • Callous or negligent doctors who may be over scheduled with work and other commitments
  • Lack of proper facilities in the hospital or clinic
  • Expectant mothers do not adhere to regular checkups by qualified doctors
  • Parents did not reveal possibility of genetic defective genes before going ahead with family planning

Every pregnancy is unique and different with different challenges arising. With the availability of advanced technologies, dynamic medical tools have been invented to monitor a pregnancy intricately. Expectant mothers are scheduled for regular checkups during the whole pregnancy trimesters to monitor the development of the baby and the health of the mother to ensure safety for both parties. These checkups would reveal possible conditions outside the norm which parents should be informed as quickly as possible.

When the baby is suspected to be growing abnormally, parents should be the first to be informed regardless of confirmation through further testing. Parents should be given the right to make the final decision on the fate of their unborn child that is identified with genetic disorders. Many parents do want this option which they feel is their responsibility and right. They might choose to terminate the pregnancy for very personal reasons.

A detailed medical history of the parents and relatives would be a good gauge on the possibility of birth defects in unborn children.

Legal Assistance in Wrongful Birth Litigations

Parents who have a child with birth defects or genetic disorders may be embittered in life with the heavy responsibility of caring for their special child especially if they are not financially capable. They would have preferred a termination of the pregnancy upon an early detection if their obstetrician conducted careful testing on the growing foetus.

Truck Accidents Can Be Complicated

Brampton truck accident lawyer Singh Barristers believes that if you have been injured as a result of a truck accident then you need a team of highly specialized lawyers to represent you.  Serious truck accidents in Brampton are not uncommon and unfortunately results in the loss of many lives each year.   Victims of truck accidents in Brampton need to know that our trial lawyers are aggressive and we have a team of the best forensic reconstruction experts in Canada to assist in determining who was at fault.  A truck accident can be very complicated especially when you are dealing with a tractor-trailer that struck a vehicle killing its occupants and there are no independent witnesses.

Brampton truck accident victims need to know that there could be more than one person responsible for the truck accident.  Potential defendants in a serious truck accident could be, the truck driver, the truck owner, the owner of the trailer, the leasing company that leased the truck and the shipping company responsible for the goods that were in transit in the truck.   We often see cases where there are several insurance companies who will dispute among themselves who will compensate the injured victims for the damages suffered as a result of the truck accident.   Some tucking companies will do all they can to try and avoid liability.  They do this by obtaining permits to operate the truck but they do not own the truck or tractor-trailer that hauls the goods.

The trucking company will then subcontract the “load” to an “owner/operator” who is required to take out his own insurance, which in some cases is the minimum required by law.  This means that the truck driver may have coverage for $250 000, which may not be enough to cover any serious personal injury claim which can cost millions.    The truck driver is then given a “placard” which is fixed to the trucks door which will have the trucking companies name on it.  An innocent observer will think that the truck is owned by ABC company when in fact it is not.  If the truck is involved in an accident and seriously injures or kills someone, the company will argue that it does not own the truck or employ the driver.

Trucks can weigh between 10 000 to 100 000 pounds and if involved in an accident the truck can inflict serious injuries to accident victims.  The common types of truck injuries include, head trauma, catastrophic brain injury, concussion, subdural hematoma, bleeding in the brain lining, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, serious neck injuries, serious fractures, burns, scarring , deformity, and emotional trauma.  An accident victim involved in a serious truck accident can take years to fully recover and unfortunately some die as a direct result of the injuries that they sustain in the collision.

Singh Barristers has a wide range of forensic experts who have years of experience in reconstruction of the accident scene and determining the role that each vehicle played in the accident. Our vehicle engineers, road engineers, biomechanical experts will be able to tell a jury how the accident happened, which vehicle caused the accident, whether the mechanics of the injury is consistent with the facts of the accident, an evaluation of the vehicles safety features and the role it played in the crash, was all drivers reasonably attentive, could the truck driver have reduced the seriousness of the impact by taking evasive action when he was first alerted to the danger and so on.

Our forensic engineers will be able to tell a host of technical details of the truck moments before impact by using the technical data stored in the trucks, such as speed, brake and throttle use, moments before impact.  Our forensic engineers use specialized software to download this vital data from Caterpillar, Detroit Diesel, International, Mercedes, Volvo and Cummins trucks.   Our engineers can also look at other data in assisting with the reconstruction, such as electronically saved data “black box” from the anti-lock braking system (ABS), global positioning system, telematics and other devices that store technical data.  Our biomechanical engineers will be able to tell the mechanics of an injury using diagnostic images, medical records and other scientific formulae to tell if the injuries were consistent with the mechanics of the collision.
