Common Injuries Resulting from Truck Accidents

According to the Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO), truck accidents were responsible for 23% of road fatalities in the province in 2019. Due to the comparatively great size and weight of large commercial trucks, collisions with smaller passenger vehicles can easily result in fatalities. Survivors of collisions with a truck can sustain severe, often catastrophic injuries that could impact the rest of their lives. Some injuries commonly sustained in truck accidents include:

  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Head injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis

Severe injuries may result in lengthy periods of hospitalization and rehabilitation, which may prevent accident victims from returning to work. An inability to a regular salary can add significant anxieties about financial instability to an already stressful recovery process.

Establishing Fault for Truck Accidents Causing Injuries

One of the leading causes of truck accidents is negligence. All road users, including drivers of large commercial trucks, must comply with traffic laws at all times, in order to ensure the safety of other drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians. Common examples of driver negligence include:

  • Distracted driving, which includes texting while driving
  • Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Aggressive driving, including speeding
  • Other violations of traffic laws

If a truck driver’s negligence behind the wheel leads to an injury-causing collision, they may be held accountable for the damages incurred by the accident victim.

In certain situations, a Windsor truck accident lawyer may be able to help prove that, in addition to the truck driver at-fault, the negligence of a third party might also have contributed to the circumstances leading to your collision. If the negligent truck driver’s employer was aware that they had a history of recklessness on the road but chose to continue employing them, the employer may be considered to be partially at fault for your collision.

Following a collision with a commercial truck in which you sustained serious injuries, it can be difficult to know where to turn to seek accountability or financial compensation. A Windsor truck accident lawyer may be able to help you determine the parties responsible for your accident, and help you pursue legal action against them.

Recovering Damages for Injuries Sustained in a Truck Accident

If you’ve been involved in a collision with a truck, you are required to report the accident to your insurance company within seven days of the accident. When filing your claim for accident benefits, you may be required to provide details about your accident, and injuries you sustained as a result. Following an investigation, your insurance company may reimburse you for certain financial losses you incurred. All drivers in Ontario are required to have auto insurance that covers:

  • Damage to your vehicle and personal property
  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral benefits
  • Uninsured motorist coverage
  • Disability and income replacement benefits

Serious injuries may result in financial losses that exceed your auto insurance benefit limits. If you are able to prove that another party is responsible for your injuries, a Windsor truck accident lawyer may be able to help you recover compensation for any additional damages the accident has caused you to incur, as detailed in Ontario’s Negligence Act.

If a truck driver’s negligence caused you to sustain permanent, debilitating injuries resulting in a diminished quality of life, a Windsor truck accident lawyer may be able to help you recover damages for pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life.
