Truck Accident Lawyer Ottawa

The rules of the road apply to all motor vehicle operators, including the operators of large commercial trucks. Like all drivers, truckers are subject to the laws outlined in the provincial Highway Traffic Act. That means they must operate their vehicles responsibly, with a reasonable degree of caution, and in consideration of other road-users’ safety.  If a truck driver fails to uphold the duty of care they owe to others by violating any of the rules of the road, lives can be lost and severe injuries can be sustained. 

The professional demands of a truck driver’s job can be onerous.To meet tight delivery schedules, truck drivers often need to spend hours on the road, often sacrificing sleep or driving past the point of physical exhaustion to reach their destination on time. Truck drivers may rely on stimulants, amphetamines, or other illicit substances to stay awake and alert for hours on end. Truck drivers might also feel the need to bend or break the rules of the road to meet tight delivery deadlines. This urgency to reach their destinations on time could cause truck drivers to speed excessively, ignore traffic signs or signals, change lanes improperly, or engage in other forms of recklessness behind the wheel. On top of that, burdened with long periods of solitude, truck drivers may indulge in a variety of distractions behind the wheel, such as texting and driving, eating while the car is in motion, or any other activity that steals their attention from the road. 

When truck drivers violate the rules of the road and neglect the duty of care they are legally required to provide to other road-users, the occupants of other vehicles could lose their lives. Those who are fortunate enough to survive a collision with a large commercial vehicle often sustain catastrophic injuries

Although injured victims of motor vehicle collisions should be entitled to accident benefits to offset the costs of injury-related expenses, the insurance coverage they might receive is rarely enough to cover their total losses. This is especially true for Ottawa truck accident victims who can no longer carry out the duties of their jobs because of injuries they have sustained in collisions caused by negligent truck drivers.
