A personal injury can happen anytime, anywhere

When most people in Ontario think of hazardous situations, they probably think about dangerous drivers, cyclists negotiating city streets, icy sidewalks in the winter or other obvious dangers. The truth is many hazards either are hidden from view, or are not obvious even when they're in plain sight. A personal injury can happen at any given moment, as an unfortunate pedestrian found out recently.

Toronto trying to reduce vehicular personal injury incidents

The big cities of Ontario are hives of activity seven days a week. Downtown workers swell the numbers on weekdays, and shoppers and sightseers take over on the weekends. Given all the cars, trucks, bikes, motorcycles and pedestrians mixing, accidents seem inevitable, and the risk of personal injury is high. Measures undertaken by the City of Toronto meant to reduce the number of accidents, and road deaths in particular, have yet to prove hugely successful, unfortunately.

Know your rights after suffering a personal injury in a fight

Many injury cases are reasonably straightforward in that one person typically injures another party through some form of negligence. The victim is frequently just an innocent person who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Not all personal injury cases are the same, of course, but many share these common traits. However, there are some situations in which the victim may not be entirely innocent, such as when a fight occurs. If one is hurt in a fight in Ontario, is it possible to sue the other person?
