Accident victim of road rage in British Columbia

First coined in 1988, the term "road rage" became common in the mid 90s. Many drivers have been subject to rude gestures or grimaces through a car window by a disgruntled driver. Road rage is not often mentioned by British Columbia authorities in an era of distracted driving, and which now promotes anger management classes. Yet an accident victim can be injured just as seriously by an enraged driver as by a distracted driver.

Wrongful death writ large while British Columbia, nation grieve

With a shudder, a hockey Mom in Langley remembered regularly driving her son to catch buses bound for out-of-town games. As our entire country mourned after the catastrophic bus crash in Saskatchewan, this British Columbia mother launched a tribute that instantly went viral. Wearing jerseys in memory of the Humboldt Broncos, a hockey team of 16- to 21-year-old players, was one way for thousands of Canadian parents to bow their heads and say, "but for the grace of God, there goes my son." In this unutterable tragedy, legal fault continues to loom large, presenting grounds for wrongful death lawsuits.

Fatality at British Columbia crosswalk cause for wrongful death

Distracted driving has come to be associated with cell phone use at the wheel. Yet there are other well-known distractions, such as changing a radio station, lighting a cigarette or being diverted by a billboard. Inattention to an upcoming crosswalk in the busiest city in British Columbia leaves pedestrians open to injury as well. When injury leads to loss of life, grounds may exist for a wrongful death lawsuit.

Wrongful death lawsuit possible after injury in British Columbia

Injuries suffered due to a roadway accident can be minor, serious, critical or life-threatening. Even when minor, injuries can turn out to have fatal consequences. This is what happened when a mother of four was struck down while standing at a bus stop in Maple Ridge, British Columbia. Given the circumstances, a family bereaved in this unexpected way may consider pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit.
