Bathurst Truck Accident Lawyer


The operators of large commercial trucks keep communities connected by delivering essential goods, products, and materials to towns and cities across the country. These drivers play an essential role in the supply chain, working long hours at a difficult job to provide communities across the nation with important supplies.

Driving any motor vehicle comes with its share of responsibilities to other road-users. However, since commercial trucks greatly outweigh smaller passenger vehicles, their drivers should be extra-vigilant. Negligence behind the wheel can result in deadly collisions, as well as accidents causing devastating, life-altering injuries.

Unfortunately, truck accidents are often caused by a truck driver’s failure to uphold their legally mandated duty of care. Truck drivers have demanding jobs; oftentimes, in order to meet these stringent demands, they find themselves adopting unsafe behaviours or habits on the road. They may neglect their sleep, driving past the point of physical exhaustion. They may neglect their nutrition, eating full meals while their vehicles are in motion. They may neglect to follow the rules of the road, speeding to reach their destination on schedule, or abusing drugs to stay awake for long stretches of time. All of these negligent behaviours, and other violations of traffic laws, puts the lives of both truck drivers and other road-users at risk.

People who are involved in a collision caused by a negligent truck driver could easily lose their lives. Those who are fortunate enough to survive the truck accident often sustain a range of injuries of varying degrees of severity. These injuries frequently include:

  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Strains and sprains
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Facial and dental injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Amputations
  • And more

When the wrongful conduct of a negligent truck driver causes an injurious collision, the at-fault driver may be liable for damages sustained by injured accident victims. Additionally, in some cases, the trucking company that employed the negligent truck driver may also be responsible for financially compensating the injured victims of their employee’s wrongful behaviours on the road.

In truck accident claims, contributory negligence can occur if the people who employed the negligent truck driver knew about their history of unsafe driving but decided to retain them on their staff. It can also occur if a trucking company creates a delivery schedule for its driver that is impossible to fulfill without indulging in unsafe behaviours, such as driving without sleep.
