Brampton Truck Accident Lawyer

In accordance with the Ontario Highway Traffic Act, all motor vehicle operators are required to fulfill a duty of care to their fellow road-users. As such, every driver is legally obligated to operate their vehicle with a reasonable degree of caution. Commercial truck drivers are no exception. They are obligated by law to take the safety of other road-users into consideration when operating their large commercial vehicles. 

Truck drivers owe a duty of care to all road-users with whom they might come into contact, including:

  • Other drivers
  • Their passengers
  • Motorcycle riders
  • Cyclists
  • Pedestrians
  • And others

Unfortunately, even though the operators of commercial transport trucks have a legal obligation to proceed with caution at all times, truck drivers often fall back on dangerous habits and unsafe driving patterns that could jeopardize the lives of countless road-users. Because of the nature of their jobs, truck drivers are required to spend long stretches of time behind the wheel. As such, their level of vigilance and safety-consciousness on the road could wear down over time. Truck drivers might find themselves regularly exceeding the speed limit, changing lanes improperly, ignoring traffic signs, and engaging in other forms of negligence behind the wheel.

Occasionally, truck drivers might feel the need to bend the rules of the road in order to reach their delivery destinations on time. They might push themselves past the point of exhaustion, skip meal breaks, and even rely on amphetamines or other stimulants to stay awake and alert for as long as possible. With long, solitary stretches of road ahead of them, truck drivers might also be more susceptible to distraction behind the wheel. They might eat meals while their vehicles are in motion, use their cell phones while driving, or engage in other forms of distraction, all of which could endanger unsuspecting road-users. 

When a 60,000 kg machine traveling at speeds of over 100 kilometers per hour collides with a smaller passenger vehicle, the truck driver might be able to walk away from the accident without a scratch. But the victims of the truck accident could lose their lives. Unfortunately, according to a recent report issues by the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), truck accidents account for nearly a quarter of the province’s fatal traffic accidents

Those who are lucky enough to survive a serious truck accident are likely to sustain permanent, catastrophic injuries. Many injured truck accident survivors lose their mobility, their independence, and their abilities to continue earning a living because of truck driver’s failure to fulfill the duty of care they legally owed other road-users.
