Mississauga Truck Accident Lawyer


Any type of motor vehicle accident can result in injuries. Collisions with commercial trucks can be particularly devastating to drivers of passenger vehicles, given the comparatively greater size and weight of these large vehicles. Often resulting from improper lane changes, accidents caused by negligent truck drivers on the province’s highways are a serious problem. In 2019 alone, Ontario Provincial Police reported more than 8,400 collisions involving commercial transport trucks, the highest number of annual truck collisions across the province in over twenty years.

Accidents caused by negligent truck drivers can be fatal. They can also result in severe injuries, including:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Lacerations, burns, and scarring
  • Broken and fractured bones
  • Cognitive and mobility impairments

Serious injuries may prevent truck accident victims from returning to work after their collisions, which can result in long-term financial difficulties. If you were injured as a result of a truck driver’s negligence, a Mississauga truck accident lawyer may be able to help you seek accident benefits from your insurance company by meeting time-sensitive deadlines and other strict filing requirements, so you can focus on your recovery. Failing to meet insurance companies’ filing deadlines may prevent you from collecting benefits for the following accident-related losses:

  • Property damage
  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Attendant care
  • Rehabilitation costs

In extremely unfortunate situations, truck accident victims can sustain permanent, catastrophic injuries as a result of their collisions. In these cases, a Mississauga truck accident lawyer may be able to help victims evaluate their losses and pursue damages against the responsible parties through legal action.

Once accidents are reported to the involved parties’ insurance companies, an investigation will be conducted. As a result of this investigation, insurance companies will determine the degree to which each driver was responsible for the accident. Drivers can be found either completely or partially at fault for causing a collision. If an accident victim is determined to be partially at fault for the accident, the insurance company may reduce the amount of accident benefits available to them.

Even if the offending truck driver has received a citation from law enforcement officers for violating traffic laws that may have led to the accident, they may not be found wholly responsible for the accident. If you’ve been injured in an accident caused by a truck driver’s negligence, and have been found to be partially at fault, a Mississauga truck accident lawyer may be able to help you appeal the insurance company’s decision, and try negotiating a new settlement on your behalf.

Recovering Damages for Injuries from Truck Accidents

Accident benefits provided by insurance companies may reimburse truck accident victims for both short-term and long-term financial losses. Based on the severity of injuries sustained, accident benefits can cover a range of damages, including:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Attendant care

When filing a claim, a Mississauga truck accident lawyer may be able to help calculate a victim’s total losses by compiling and analyzing evidence, such as medical bills, financial records, and earnings statements.

If the injuries you’ve sustained in the accident prevent you from returning to work or engaging in activities you enjoyed before your collision, a Mississauga truck accident lawyer may be able to help you pursue a tort claim against a number of responsible parties to try recovering additional damages. In the province of Ontario, a significant number of truck accidents involve commercial vehicles in poor operating conditions, per Canadian Occupational Safety. In these cases, the negligence of a truck driver’s employer or their vehicle’s manufacturer might have also been contributing factors in a serious collision.

Truck accidents can cause permanent, debilitating injuries, as well as mental anguish and emotional trauma. If you’ve suffered life-changing injuries as a result of another party’s negligence, a Mississauga truck accident lawyer may be able to help you seek accountability and financial restitution.
