Cambridge Truck Accident Lawyer

Transport trucks can weigh over 30,000 pounds and stand up to 14 feet tall. When a vehicle this big gets into an accident with something just a fraction of the size, it is always the smaller vehicle that sustains the greatest injury and damage.

Because of this, the moments and days after a truck accident can be difficult and leave victims unsure of what their next steps are.

If you or a loved one has been in a truck accident, speak to a Cambridge truck accident lawyer first that can help. A personal injury lawyer in Cambridge can build a claim to help recover compensatory damages on your behalf.

Types of Trucks

Typically, when people think of trucks out on the road they think of transport trucks, also known as semi-trucks or 18 wheelers. But transports are just one type of commercial truck on the road. Others are also out there, and they each have their inherent risks.

It is the size of transport trucks that cause the most problems for those on the road. Because transports are so tall, they have a very high center of gravity, making them prone to tipping or rolling over. Because they are so long, they can also have very large blind spots.

Tanker trucks are of similar size to transport trucks, but the load they carry is typically in the shape of a cylinder on their trailer. These trucks carry liquids or gases, usually of a hazardous material. These have the same risks as transport trucks but due to the dangerous nature of their load, they have additional risks if any of their loads make it onto the roadway.

Dump trucks and garbage trucks are similar sizes, and they both transport loads from one place to another. When not loaded properly, those loads can spill out and off the truck causing problems for drivers.

Common Residental Trucks

These are also the most common trucks to see in residential areas, which can sometimes result in a pedestrian or bicycle accident. Flatbed trucks are often very long, but do not have the height or weight of 18 wheelers. These trucks have open trailers behind a cab, making it easy for loading and unloading. Cargo that was not properly loaded is typically the cause of most accidents involving flatbed trucks.

Tow trucks, while they may not seem as large as 18 wheelers, can weigh up to 10,000 pounds and are actually the cause of most trucking accidents. While towing a vehicle these trucks have large blind spots and the operators are not always adequately trained in driving them and/or properly loading and unloading the vehicles they are towing.

No matter the type of truck that was involved, when individuals are in a truck accident, they need to speak to a truck accident lawyer in Cambridge as soon as possible.


The commercial trucking industry can be complicated. Commercial trucks have many different federal and provincial laws governing their speed, their weight, and the number of hours they are allowed on the road at any one time. A Cambridge truck accident lawyer knows these regulations that all truck drivers and companies must abide by. When they do not, they may be found negligent.

If that is the case, and that negligence causes an accident, accident victims may be able to sue and claim compensation. But this is definitely a fight no one wants to go alone.

Trucking companies, and the insurance companies behind them, can be very big corporations and will fight hard to avoid paying out claims. A Cambridge truck accident lawyer, on the other hand, will fight to protect the rights of accident victims.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a truck accident, contact a truck accident lawyer in Cambridge that can start reviewing your case today, while you focus on your recovery.
