Sudbury Truck Accident Lawyer


Large transport trucks take a considerable amount of skill to operate. Due to their substantial size and weight, if a truck’s driver is negligent or if its mechanical systems fail, a large commercial truck can pose a significant threat to passenger vehicles on the road.

Victims injured in Sudbury truck accidents could face substantial medical expenses, lost wages due to an inability to work, and other financial burdens. If the truck driver or another party was responsible for your accident, a Sudbury truck accident lawyer may be able to help you pursue financial compensation.

Common Truck Accident Injuries in Sudbury

Victims of truck accidents may suffer a variety of injuries, including:

Seeking medical attention immediately after a collision involving a truck could provide you with an accurate diagnosis of injuries you sustained and might help you prevent future complications in your recovery process resulting from delayed treatment. Medical diagnoses recorded immediately after your collision might also be used as evidence by a Sudbury truck accident lawyer in future legal action, if necessary.

Transport trucking companies are responsible for prioritizing driver safety while their vehicles are in operation. While many circumstances might lead a truck driver to cause a collision, some accidents could be easily avoided through proper training, and through the implementation of official company-sanctioned safety procedures.

If an otherwise preventable accident is caused by the negligence of a truck driver or their employer, these parties may be considered liable for damages incurred by accident victims as a result of their injuries.

Examples of how negligence may cause a truck accident include:

  • Employer negligence: It is the trucking company’s responsibility to ensure all of its affiliated drivers are well-trained and have a history of responsible driving. Companies are also responsible for ensuring all of the trucks in their fleet are safe to operate.
  • Impaired driving: Drivers may drink or use other substances on the road, either for recreational purposes or to keep awake and alert on long hauls. Impaired driving puts other road users at risk.
  • Mechanical defect or malfunction: If trucks are not submitted to regular, thorough inspections, their mechanical systems could malfunction without any warning.
  • Failure to check blind spots: A large truck may have areas of limited visibility behind their vehicle or on either side of it. If a truck driver does not properly monitor these areas, they could cause a collision when switching lanes or turning.
  • Aggressive driving: Any violation of traffic laws, such as speeding or ignoring road signals, could result in a truck driver causing an accident.

Investigating Truck Accidents in Sudbury

In order to help determine the truck driver’s liability following a collision with a passenger vehicle, a Sudbury truck accident lawyer may be able to investigate the accident by collecting and analyzing evidence, and determine liability when we represent you. Examples of evidence a truck accident lawyer may compile include:

  • Daily travel logs: According to Ontario’s Ministry of Transportation (MTO), truck drivers are required to comply with rules limiting the lengths of time they’re allowed to be on the road, and must keep daily, electronic travel logs documenting their hours.
  • Inspection certificates: All large trucks must comply with regular Safety Inspections. A truck accident lawyer may be able to review the vehicle’s history of inspections to determine if the truck that caused your accident was in compliance with safety regulations.
  • The truck’s black box: Data recorded by the truck’s onboard sensors, or dashcam footage may help establish fault in a collision with a passenger vehicle.

In addition, to the evidence above, a Sudbury truck accident lawyer may be able to collect the following evidence to help prove that any injuries you sustained were caused by a truck driver’s negligence:

  • Photographic evidence and video footage of the truck accident
  • Statements from eyewitnesses at the scene
  • Financial statements supporting the victim’s lost income claims
  • Medical examinations
  • Police reports
  • Testimony from accident reconstruction and medical experts
