Distracted Driving Accident Lawyer In Toronto

Distracted driving and texting have changed the landscape of car accident law in Ontario:

  • If you have been involved in a “texting while driving” accident in Oakville, Richmond Hill, Toronto or the surrounding areas in Southern Ontario, we want to know.
  • If you have been injured and were charged with distracted driving, your insurance company may claim that it does not have to cover your injuries or defend you if you are sued. This is not true. We can help you fight to get the benefits you need, regardless of whether or not you are found guilty.

Distracted Driving Affecting Accident Benefits And Claims

If you have been hit by a distracted driver, we can help you gather evidence and use it in a claim to get compensation for your injuries.

Distracted driving includes:

  • Driving while texting
  • Driving while reading
  • Driving while talking on a cellphone that isn’t hands-free
  • Driving while watching an entertainment device
  • Falling asleep while driving

All of these activities have become major problems in Ontario and help cause a large proportion of accidents. For that reason, Ontario, along with all the other provinces, has new legislation to charge and/or fine anyone found driving while texting or driving while distracted in some other way.
