Accidents and Injuries
Nobody starts their day planning to have an accident, but the lives of over 2 million Canadians each year are forever changed by unintentional injuries resulting from an accident. These accidents can take many forms: slips, trips and falls, injuries from other unsafe conditions on property, boating accidents, ATV and snowmobile accidents, accidents involving aircraft, and injuries from defective products and equipment. Many different injuries can be sustained in an accident, such as sprains and strains, bone fractures, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, paralysis and more.
If you’ve been injured in an accident, you know that your pain and suffering does not end with the accident itself. You may also be facing hospitalization, invasive surgery, intense rehabilitation, physical therapy, short-term or permanent disability, severe scarring, and a loss of income due to your injuries. Looking towards the future after an injury can be daunting, especially when you wonder about the costs that will be incurred – and who will pay.
Unintentional injuries and accidents are such a serious issue in Canada that the Public Health Agency of Canada estimates that they cost the nation $8.7 billion each year, partially disabling 43,892 people for life and permanently disabling another 3,300. On average, each injury generates $4,000 in direct and indirect costs. These are grim statistics to face, especially when the accident was due to somebody else’s negligence and could have been prevented.

Putting Information in the Hands of the Consumer
We want the consumer to be on a level playing field with the insurance companies so much, we wrote the book on injury and accident cases. When Ches Crosbie Barristers was founded in 1991, we pioneered the provision of useful legal information to injury and accident victims in this province. Now we have brought this to a whole new level with the ultimate guide to accident cases in Newfoundland and Labrador. This innovative consumer book, 7 Deadly Sins That Can Wreck Your Injury Claim, is available free to residents of this province.
This revealing book will help you answer several crucial questions:
- Do I need a lawyer?
- How do I find the right lawyer for my injury case?
- How do I avoid making a terrible mistake in my claim?
We believe this information is so important for consumers that we “wrote the book on it” – and want to give it away for free!
