Toronto Snowbird Car Accident Lawyers

Assisting Canadian Clients for Over 75 Years

Canadian winters can be brutal leading nearly 3.5 million snowbirds to the much warmer climate in Florida. The appeal of quaint seaside towns, outdoor activities, and pleasantly warm weather, the draw of southern migration is undeniable. However, the journey south can be treacherous even for experienced snowbirds. Car accidents are a common occurrence and can have catastrophic outcomes.

Our compassionate team of legal professionals can provide the support and guidance you need during this difficult time.

Travel Risks

While the destination may be worth it, the journey to Florida can be fraught with risks. The trek from Toronto to Orlando is roughly 2,068 kilometers that pass through the busy northeast, the winding roads of the Virginias, and the busy interstates sprawled across the American south.

Driving through so many various climates and topographies can be difficult. For example, depending on the time of year, Pennsylvania roads can be icy while the Appalachian Mountains lead drivers through hair-raising twists and turns. The annual migration of snowbirds to destinations like Boca Raton, Ft. Lauderdale, and Miami also means an increase in traffic on the same route which is a problem in and of itself.

Other risks include:

  • Poor or hazardous road conditions
  • Extreme weather conditions
  • Increased traffic
  • Construction and detours
  • Unfamiliar roads
  • Complicated driving laws
  • Driver negligence
  • Vehicle malfunctions

While drivers may take the proper precautions to plan their route, perform routine maintenance before the trip, and keep updated on road conditions, weather, and construction, it is nearly impossible to plan for how other drivers behave.

Negligence

Even the best drivers cannot account for other motorists. In some cases, local drivers familiar with the road drive more recklessly than visitors and tourists. Additionally, some motorists choose to take unnecessary risks which can endanger others on the road.

When accidents occur due to the recklessness of others, negligence may be a factor. Negligence can include various violations like speeding, failure to signal lane changes, sudden exits, or braking suddenly in high-speed areas. Distracted driving can also be negligent and result in harm to others.

International Accidents

Snowbird accidents are uniquely complicated in that they usually occur outside of Canada. Not only do those hurt in an accident have to deal with possible injuries and vehicle damage, but they also must navigate complex legal matters that arise because of negligence.

It is important to understand that if an accident occurs in the U.S., driver’s with an Ontario auto policy can access Accident Benefits in Ontario. As far as the at fault drivers, American drivers may not have sufficient policy limits to cover the losses and you may need to start a law suit against your own auto insurer, in Ontario.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a snowbird car accident, you must consult an attorney as soon as possible. A lawyer can assist you with the complexities of non-U.S. citizen accidents, but they can also advocate for your interests.
