What to expect during your car accident consultation

At the Chera Law Office, we offer free, no-obligation, first-time consultations to potential new clients where we will talk to you in detail about the facts surrounding their car accidents and associated injuries. During this consultation, we will cover several specific issues.

How do I know if it is time to replace my vehicle breaks?

One of the most important pieces of safety equipment on your motor vehicle is your brakes. Your brakes are what determine how fast your vehicle can stop, and in many cases, this one factor is the most vital issue in avoiding getting into a fatal or injurious car crash. As such, it is important that Ontario residents keep their brakes in good repair, and therefore, they should know when they need to be serviced or replaced.

Motorcycle accident claims litigation

Motorcycle enthusiasts are some of the safest drivers on the road. This is largely because they have no choice to be otherwise -- one false move could spell disaster. Indeed, motorcyclists are highly vulnerable to serious injury and death in the event of an accident because they are not protected by airbags or heavy steel frames. As such, they are completely exposed to the outer world, and if they get into a crash, it is likely they will suffer seriously catastrophic injuries. Motorcyclists are also up against the challenge of navigating roadways dominated by cars, which are driven by motorists who are often inattentive and not looking out for motorcycles and their riders.

Ontario plans to revamp dangerous city roadway

Shortsville, Ontario, is home to a very dangerous intersection, where cars, pickup trucks, flatbed trucks and other vehicles regularly get snared into life-threatening crashes. One recent crash involved an 84-year-old driver who did not yield to an oncoming 54-year-old driver at the intersection and the vehicles collided. The 84-year-old was trapped in his car and had to be extricated. Both drivers suffered injuries and needed to be taken to the hospital.

What does the law say about self-driving cars?

Whether you like it or not, it appears that self-driving cars are here to stay and as technology improves, Ontario's roadways may soon be busy with them. Miraculously, these cars are capable of sensing their surroundings, and with artificial intelligence, they can pilot themselves without a driver. Although they are not exactly approved for everyone yet, Ontario law does allow for the pilot testing of these futuristic cars.
