Common Causes of Leamington Auto Accidents
In Ontario the majority of car collisions occurred on Thursdays between the hours of noon and 6p.m.
Transport Canada and a number of other government and independent bodies often collect such data about car wrecks in an effort to better understand why they occur and how they can be prevented in the future.
However, it's important to note that in many accidents, the same list of reasons are often repeated.
Some common causes of auto crashes include:
Negligence is a primary factor in the causes of collisions and according to the Ontario Ministry of Transportation, 13 drivers in 2010 were charged with criminal negligence. Furthermore, approximately 500 drivers were convicted of dangerous driving.
Types of Car Collisions
It's important to note that the type of accident often has a significant impact into the type of injury that another motorists, passenger or pedestrian can suffer as a result.
However, it's also worth noting that due to many different circumstances that can include inclement weather, bad road conditions and mechanical failure many accidents are not always classified as a "typical" type of collision.
With this in mind, some of the most common types of car accidents include:
In the province there were more than 230 collisions caused by drivers going the wrong way, a common cause of head-on accidents. Single-vehicle accidents are also a type of crash that typically involves a driver colliding with a fence, light pole or tree. In some causes these accidents are caused by a driver swerving to avoid hitting another object however they can be caused most any type of driver negligence.
Common Car Accident Injuries
There were more than 64,000 persons injured in Ontario as a result of car collisions and in Leamington specifically, there were 75 persons injured in 2010.
At the law offices of Greg Monforton & Partners, we also understand that in most cases, the injury not only affects the victim, but also their loved ones and other dependents. With this in mind, our legal team include these factors in the compensation negotiation phase of our lawsuits, which can help obtain a more favorable result for our clients.

Overall, fractures accounted for more than 2,500 hospital admissions. Furthermore, internal injuries which could include damage to internal organs and internal bleeding accounted for more than 370 hospital admissions after car crashes.
