Although the loss of a loved one is never easy, this loss will undoubtedly be more difficult to accept for the family given the circumstances.

YOUR RIGHTS IF A LOVED ONE IS KILLED BECAUSE OF A DRUNK DRIVER:
Fatal accidents caused by drunk drivers continue to occur far too often on Ontario roadways. In addition to the criminal proceedings that often result from drunk driving fatality accidents, there are often civil claims. For the family that has lost a loved one, their grief is often followed by feelings of uncertainty and despair. In addition to the loss of companionship, love and affection, a family often faces financial hardship following the sudden loss of a loved one. In Ontario, when someone is killed as a result of a motor vehicle accident, their family can make claims for financial losses. This type of claim is often referred to as a wrongful death claim.
Despite the facts of the case, which may appear compelling, wrongful death claims can still present challenges. These claims are often vigorously defended by the insurance company. Even when fault is admitted for the accident, the insurance company will often dispute the financial losses claimed. As such, it is wise to seek the advice of a Ontario lawyer with experience in wrongful death claims so that you will take the right steps to preserve and maximize your claim.

Ontario Car Accident Lawyer: We can help if you have been injured in an accident involving a left turn.
Toronto and Ontario auto accidents involving a left turning vehicle can result in catastrophic injuries and fatalities. Often, automobiles will be traveling at a high rate of speed when they collide with another automobile that suddenly turns left across their path. If you or a loved one is involved in an accident involving a left turning vehicle, it is important to seek the advice of experienced Toronto and Ontario car accident lawyer to assess your claim and help you to make informed decisions.
Ontario automobile accidents involving left turns can be complex when it comes to advancing claims for insurance proceeds. Although you may be certain that the left turning vehicle caused the accident, these types of collisions are often vigorously defended on liability. Often, there will either be no witnesses or conflicting accounts as to how the collision occurred. The drivers of the respective automobiles involved may also have conflicting versions of the accident and sequence of events. In these circumstances, it may not be so easyto determine which party is at fault. Experienced Ontario car accident lawyers can assist with investigating the circumstances of the accident in order to prove fault and secure your ability to make a claim for your injuries.
The Ontario Highway Traffic Act states that "No driver or operator of a vehicle in an intersection shall turn left across the path of a vehicle approaching from the opposite direction unless he or she has afforded a reasonable opportunity to the driver or operator of the approaching vehicle to avoid a collision." R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 141 (5).
In other words, a driver is not allowed to turn left at an intersection if the automobile approaching from the opposite could end up colliding with your automobile. Significantly, IT DOES NOT MATTER WHAT THE COLOR OF THE LIGHT IS AT THE TIME THE COLLSION OCCURS. It is not enough to simply wait for the light to turn red and then turn left. Even if an approaching vehicle runs a red light and collides with your car, you may still be liable. Before proceeding to make a left turn, take extra time to make sure that the approaching vehicles are completely stopping.
While a ticket or potential liability in a civil claim is one reason to wait before turning left, the more important reason by far is that left turn collisions can have catastrophic consequences. Take care of yourself and others on the roadway by exercising caution whenever making a left turn. Don't worry about the cars behind you honking; satisfy yourself that the approaching traffic is either stopping or far enough away so that you can safely make your left turn.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a left turn accident in Ontario, it is important to speak with a knowledgeable car accident lawyer to learn about your rights. Contact lawyer Andrew Iacobelli of Iacobelli Law Firm for a free, no obligation, consultation. We can arrange to meet with you at our office or at another convenient location if you are unable to travel due to the severity of your injuries.
