Hanson Duby (http://www.HansonDuby.com), a personal injury law firm serving the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), has recently released a statement warning that road and sidewalk conditions in the GTA are beginning to deteriorate as frequent temperature swings combined with rain and snow and ground that is thawing result in unstable roads and sidewalks.
“This time of year the roads and walkways become more and more difficult to navigate as a result of the freeze-thaw cycle. Snow melts when the temperatures rise, but it has nowhere to go because the ground remains partially frozen. When the temperature dips later in the day, the water freezes and expands and cracks appear and widen,” says Brad Duby, Senior Partner at Hanson Duby. “These temperature fluctuations can cause a rash of potholes and ruts on roads and buckling sidewalks across the GTA, making it extremely dangerous to get around.”
Duby graduated from Queen’s University with an Honours BA in 1996, from the University of Guelph with an MA in 1998, and from the University of Windsor with an LLB degree in 2001. Duby was admitted to the Law Society of Upper Canada in 2002. He is a member of the Ontario Bar Association and the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association.
Duby's practice is devoted to all types of personal injury litigation on behalf of plaintiffs, including motor vehicle accidents, product liability, environmental claims, long-term disability, and slip and falls.
“While freeze-thaw cycles are a fact of life in the GTA, the damages to roadways and sidewalks can be a serious danger for daily commuters. Negligent, aggressive, and distracted commuters, and neglectful businesses and homeowners can all put pedestrians and drivers at risk,” adds Duby.
Duby concludes by noting that anyone who has suffered injuries from an accident resulting from poor road and or sidewalk conditions in the GTA should seek out a personal injury lawyer who can help assess whether or not they may have a claim at law. Hanson Duby has a team of experienced personal injury lawyers that will protect the rights of its clients by pursuing the proper compensation.
