Vehicle Collisions and Wildlife – Suing the Driver of your Own Vehicle
In Alberta, and indeed across Canada, drivers are sometimes faced with the situation of a wild animal on the roadway. Accidents can ensue, sometimes with disastrous consequences. When an accident involving just one vehicle occurs due to the presence of a wild animal, the driver has typically no one to sue. The driver would be entitled to rely on their own accident benefits under their insurance policy to pay for such things as medical treatment or possibly time off of work, but the driver would not get compensation for such things as pain and suffering. There is usually no one to blame in those circumstances.
