Toronto Truck Accident Lawyers

Truck drivers deliver essential goods, materials, supplies, and other cargo to communities across the nation. They keep Toronto connected to the rest of the province and provide essential services to its residents.

In order to meet the rigorous demands of their jobs, truck drivers are frequently required to spend long stretches of time behind the wheel of their large commercial vehicles. And while all licensed motorists in the province are required to abide by the Ontario Highway Traffic Act, many professional truck drivers can exhibit careless, unlawful driving behaviours.

Whether they feel the need to speed excessively in order to reach their destinations on time or have developed lazy habits after so much time on the road, truck drivers could engage in reckless, wrongful actions while operating their large, dangerous vehicles. Regardless of their reason for driving negligently, their actions behind the wheel could have life-changing consequences for innocent, unsuspecting road-users.

Common examples of driver negligence that often leads to injury-causing truck accidents in and around the Greater Toronto area include:

  • Fatigued driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving under the influence of stimulants, amphetamines, or other illicit substances
  • Improperly changing lanes
  • Speeding
  • Ignoring traffic signs/signals
  • Eating behind the wheel while the truck is in motion
  • Texting while driving
  • And more

In certain situations, the contributory negligence of another party or entity could play a role in the circumstances leading to a serious truck accident. The owners of trucking companies and other private employers have a responsibility to ensure that both the drivers and the vehicles they send out on the highway meet the province’s stringent commercial vehicle safety requirements. If a truck driver’s employer fails to comply with these industry standards, knowingly employs a negligent truck driver, or engages in other forms of negligence, they might be considered liable for damages sustained by the injured victims of truck accidents caused by their employees.

Since trucks are so much larger than regular passenger vehicles, when collisions occur, the operator of the truck might only sustain mild or moderate injuries. However, occupants of the car with which it collided could lose their lives or sustain severe, catastrophic injuries. The injuries sustained in truck accidents can have profound consequences that can change the course of an accident survivor’s life.

Oftentimes, injured victims of truck accidents incur substantial financial losses as a result of the injuries they have sustained. And while injured accident survivors should be able to access no-fault accident benefits through their automotive insurer, in many cases, this insurance coverage fails to sufficiently cover all of an accident victim’s injury-related financial losses.

However, by working with our Toronto truck accident lawyers, people who have been injured by the negligent operators of large commercial vehicles or their employers may be able to recover the compensation they deserve by pursuing a personal injury claim. To learn whether you might be eligible to pursue legal action, book a free initial consultation with our truck accident lawyers serving Toronto today.
