Mississauga Truck Accident Lawyer


There is a frightening trend taking place on our province’s roads and highways. In less than a year, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have recorded a 40% increase in collisions involving transport trucks, accounting for nearly a quarter of the province’s fatal traffic accidents. 

Large commercial vehicles like transport trucks greatly outweigh regularly sized passenger vehicles. When a 60,000 kg machine traveling at speeds of over 100 kilometers per hour collides with another vehicle, the consequences are often deadly. Unsuspecting road-users could lose their lives in senseless, violent, and ultimately preventable accidents, and all because of a professional truck driver’s negligence behind the wheel.

Although truck drivers keep communities connected by delivering goods, materials, and consumer products to cities and towns across the country, when they bend the rules of the road, they put innocent lives at risk. Spending long stretches of time behind the wheel for days on end, the operators of large commercial vehicles like transport trucks frequently develop bad driving habits that could jeopardize the safety of countless road-users. 

Whether they are anxious about meeting their delivery deadlines, fatigued and overworked, or simply bored behind the wheel, truck drivers often violate the rules outlined in the province’s Highway Traffic Act to make their jobs more expedient or endurable. If a truck driver’s violation of the law leads to a collision in which another road-user is injured or killed, they might be considered negligent. 

Common examples of truck driver negligence that often leads to serious collision in and around Mississauga include:

  • Texting while driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Driving under the influence of stimulants, amphetamines, and other illicit substances
  • Drunk driving
  • Eating while the vehicle is in motion
  • Improperly changing lanes
  • Following too closely
  • Exceeding the posted speed limit
  • Driving recklessly
  • Ignoring traffic signs and signals
  • And more

If a truck driver’s negligence caused you to sustain compensable injuries, there are several things you should know. If you wish to pursue a civil claim for damages, multiple parties and/or entities might be considered liable for the injury-related costs you have incurred, including the company that employed the negligent truck driver whose wrongful actions caused your collision to occur. 

There is only a short period of time in which injured truck accident survivors are entitled to pursue a civil claim. To discuss your case with our Mississauga truck accident lawyers and learn whether you might be eligible to recover compensation, call 1-800-JUSTICE today.
