If you are hurt as a result of someone’s negligence, with the assistance of a personal injury lawyer at our Whitby firm, you can bring a lawsuit against them to compensate you for your loss.
An individual or entity is Negligent if they fail to exercise the care expected of a reasonably prudent person in similar circumstances. Under Ontario Law an injured party is entitled to compensation if certain elements are met:
- The other party must have had a duty to you, to meet a specified standard of care;
- due to their careless action, the other party breached /violated the duty of care;
- as a result of the other party’s breach/violation, it caused your injury, and that injury was foreseeable; and
- as a result of the injuries you have suffered some compensatory loss.
Compensation can be for non-money losses such as pain and suffering or loss of care guidance and companionship or for calculable money losses such as lost wages, medical expenses, lost ability to earn income or out of pocket expenses that would not have been incurred, but for the injury.
If an injured party is partially at fault for their injuries, the law still allows you to get compensated for the percentage of fault contributed to by the other party. This is called contributory negligence. There would be a reduction in a damage award equal to the individual’s portion of percentage of negligence. Not wearing a seatbelt is an example of contributory negligence that may reduce any award made to you.
An individual’s right to sue is taken away if he/she is 100% responsible for his/her injuries. Involved in a Car Accident? Get Compensation for You and Your Family

If you are injured by a drunk driver, for example, you may be able to sue both the driver and the bar or restaurant who may have overserved the driver alcohol. Ontario law says that a bar or restaurant is liable for injuries that their customer caused to another, if they serve alcohol to them when they were already visibly intoxicated.
