Antigonish Truck Accident Lawyer


To meet the rigorous demands of their jobs, truck drivers on the roads and highways in and around Antigonish may feel the need to adopt unsafe habits behind the wheel. Truck drivers, certainly, have important and demanding jobs, however they have a responsibility to perform the duties of their occupation in a safe manner, and in consideration of the safety of other road-users. The negligence of a truck driver could have disastrous, life-changing repercussions for the victims of truck accidents.

The provincial safety regulations outlined in the Motor Vehicle Act apply to the operators of all motor vehicles, including the people who drive trucks. If truck drivers disobey the rules of the road, serious, injury-causing accidents could ensue. When a truck driver’s wrongful actions, inactions, errors, or other violations of traffic laws cause a collision with a smaller passenger vehicle in which occupants sustain injuries, the at-fault truck driver might be considered negligent.

Common examples of negligence that often result in injurious truck accidents  include:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol
  • Driving under the influence of stimulants, amphetamines, and other drugs
  • Texting while driving
  • Eating while driving
  • Improper lane changes
  • Ignoring traffic signs or signals
  • And more

Truck accident victims who sustain injuries in a collision caused by a negligent truck driver often suffer profoundly devastating  physical, emotional, and financial consequences. However, by pursuing legal action against the at-fault driver, injured accident victims may be able to recover compensation for damages they have incurred as a result of being injured. In some circumstances, depending on the details of the collision, the trucking company that employed the at-fault driver might also be considered negligent, and therefore, they may also be liable for damages sustained by injured accident survivors.

If a truck driver’s negligence caused a collision in which you sustained compensable injuries, our truck accident lawyersserving Antigonish may be able to help you recover financial compensation.
