Guelph Truck Accident Lawyer


When a large commercial vehicle like a truck collides with a passenger vehicle, the results can be disastrous. Due to the comparatively greater size and weight of trucks, passenger vehicles involved in collisions with them could be seriously damaged, resulting in severe injuries or even death.

Truck accidents can happen for a number of reasons, including:

  • Overworked, tired truck drivers
  • Vehicle problems, such as faulty brakes
  • Distracted driving
  • Failure to obey traffic signals
  • Poor visibility on the road
  • Truck drivers operating their vehicles under the influence of alcohol or drugs

In Ontario, the number of annual truck collisions is at a record, twenty-year high. With so many collisions involving commercial trucks occurring throughout the province, serious injuries and deaths as a result of accidents have, unfortunately, also increased. In 2019, per the Ministry of Ontario (MTO), the province’s large truck collisions were responsible for the highest number of fatalities on the road, comprising nearly a quarter of all fatal vehicle accidents.

Survivors of truck accidents may sustain permanent, catastrophic injuries that may impact their future quality of life, and their abilities to earn an income. If a truck driver’s negligence caused you to sustain serious injuries as the result of a collision, a Guelph truck accident lawyer may be able to help you seek accident benefits, or pursue legal action against the responsible parties.

Surviving victims of truck accidents can face a number of challenges. While insurance companies may be able to provide injured victims with benefits to cover some of their losses, in many cases, the damage caused by a truck driver’s negligence can greatly exceed the cost of accident benefits available to them.

Injured victims may choose to retain the services of a Guelph truck accident lawyer who may be able to help them to compile and analyze evidence to illustrate the total costs of damages caused by the truck driver responsible for their injuries. If a truck driver’s negligence is determined to be the cause of your injury-causing collision, a truck accident lawyer may be able to help you recover damages for the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Disfigurement and scarring
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium

A Guelph truck accident lawyer may be able to help you recover damages through the following actions:

  • Determining liability for the accident
  • Gathering evidence
  • Communicating with insurance providers
  • Filing relevant paperwork
  • Negotiating settlements
  • Representing your case in court, if necessary

Truck Accident Resulting in Wrongful Deaths

Tragically, collisions with commercial trucks often result in the loss of life. If someone you loved was killed because of a truck driver’s negligence, a Guelph truck accident lawyer may be able to help you pursue accountability.

According to the Family Law Act, negligence leading to wrongful deaths could be grounds for liability. If a negligent truck driver caused a fatal accident, they could be responsible for related costs including:

  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Travel expenses
  • Lost income, benefits, and annuities from the deceased
  • Loss of guidance and companionship
