Truck Accident Considerations

Large trucks – commercial vehicles that weigh 10,000 pounds or more – pose the serious risk to other drivers and their passengers. Given the size and nature of these vehicles, it is not surprising that people involved in truck accidents are often seriously hurt.

Kitchener drivers who are hurt in a truck accident could be entitled to financial compensation for their injuries, and should immediately call a truck accident lawyer for more information. Ontario has unique auto accident laws that allow injured accident victims to seek compensation for their damages.

Causes of Truck Accidents

Some of the common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Failing to adjust vehicle speed to curves in the road
  • The weight and height of the truckload
  • Faulty brakes or other neglected vehicle conditions
  • Driver inattention
  • Distracted driving
  • Over-steering
  • Failing to stay in the correct lane

As this list shows, truck accidents are often caused by the truck driver’s wrongful conduct. If someone else was responsible for their accident, they could be entitled to pursue a compensation claim in court with the assistance of a Kitchener truck accident lawyer.

Common Injuries

Any one of the above-listed accident causes could result in a deadly accident. Even when accident victims survive truck crashes, they often sustain serious injuries, such as:

  • Broken bones
  • Internal injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Concussion
  • Whiplash
  • Burns
  • Loss of limbs
  • Emotional or mental suffering

All of these injuries can lead to long periods away from work, and high medical or rehabilitation expenses. Accident victims, through an Accident Benefits claim, may be entitled to income replacement benefits, medical and rehabilitation benefits among other things.

Seeking Accident Compensation

Kitchener accident victims must first file an accident benefits claim from their own car insurance company. However, if the truck driver or commercial trucking company is at fault for the accident, the injured victim may be permitted to file a tort suit against the responsible party in some cases.

Contacting a Kitchener Truck Accident Lawyer

Truck accidents lawyers are key to determining whether you can bring a tort case due to your injuries. These cases can be complicated because they often involved multiple people.

The truck driver, the trucking company, and insurance companies may all be involved in your claim. Given the heightened danger involved in truck accidents, sustained injuries can be that much more severe.

If you were recently hurt in a commercial truck accident, contact a Kitchener truck accident lawyer right away to begin your case of deserved compensation.
