A serious accident involving several vehicles occurred on the QEW in Mississauga on the morning of May 9, 2012. Early reports of this accident indicate that a young woman in her early twenties suffered very serious injuries in this QEW car accident. Others were also injured and taken to hospital. A driver of a Lincoln Towncar was reportedly charged with careless driving by police.
Our thoughts are with the young lady that was injured in this accident and her family. We hope that she will make a quick and complete recovery.
Unfortunately, accidents on Ontario highways are common. While the vast majority of car accidents are minor, some result in serious injuries. While we refer to these collisions as accidents, they are almost always avoidable. Most car crashes occur because of driver error. In cases involving multiple vehicles, early collection of facts and preservation of evidence is essential in order to assess and determine the cause of the collision. Multi-vehicle collisions are complex and usually require experts, such as engineers, to perform accident reconstruction analsysis. Modern cars are often equipped with computer systems that collect and store information that may be downloaded. This information needs to be obtained soon following a collision or it may be lost.
If you are involved in a serious multi-vehicle car crash, you should not delay in consulting a lawyer. While your first priority is certainly your recovery and health, the lawyer and their team can commence the process of collecting information, interviewing witnesses, and preserving key evidence to support your claim. By doing so, when the time is appropriate, you will be in a better position to advance your claim. The insurance company will almost certainly mobilize quickly following a serious accident in an effort to minimize or defeat your claim.
