Bridgewater Truck Accident Lawyer


Spending hours on the road, sacrificing sleep, neglecting proper nutrition, and racing to meet tight delivery deadlines, the people who transport essential goods and supplies across the country have an incredibly difficult job. Truck drivers keep communities connected by delivering important products and materials. However, because of the demands of their job, truck drivers often feel the need to adopt habits or behaviours that may be unsafe for both themselves and for other road-users.

Operating any kind of motor vehicle in a negligent manner could result in an injurious collision. However, because of their massive structure and weight, commercial trucks that are involved in accidents often have disastrous consequences. Truck accident victims in and around Bridgewater often lose their lives as a result of the commercial truck driver’s negligence.

All drivers on the roads and highways throughout the province are required by law to operate their vehicles in a reasonably cautious manner and to comply with local traffic laws. This duty of care applies to truck drivers, as well. Failure to uphold this duty of care to other road-users by engaging in wrongful conduct behind the wheel could be considered negligence. Therefore, if a truck driver’s unlawful actions on the road cause a collision in which the occupants of other vehicles sustain injuries, the at-fault truck driver may be liable for damages incurred by the injured accident victims.

Common examples of truck driver negligence that often leads to an injury-causing collision include:

  • Driving under the influence of stimulants, amphetamines, or other illicit drugs
  • Distracted driving
  • Texting while driving
  • Eating while driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Reckless driving
  • Excessive speeding
  • Ignoring traffic signs/signals
  • Improper lane changes
  • And more

If a truck driver’s negligence on the road caused you to sustain compensable injuries in a collision, our truck accident lawyers serving Bridgewater may be able to provide you with crucial legal assistance and advice. By working with our Bridgewater truck accident lawyers, you may be able to pursue a civil claim to recover damages from the at-fault truck driver and, depending on the circumstances of your accident, from the trucking company that hired them.

A trucking company could be considered contributorily negligent if their wrongful administrative actions contributed to the circumstances that caused an injurious collision. For example, if a trucking company’s leadership was aware that their employee had a history of negligent driving but decided to send them on the road anyway, they may be considered liable for certain damages incurred by the injured victims of the at-fault truck driver’s negligence.

Nobody expects to be involved in an injurious collision on the road. After sustaining injuries in a trucking accident, it can be difficult to know where to turn for accountability and financial compensation. Even if you are unsure whether you may be eligible to pursue a claim, consider scheduling a free initial consultation with our Bridgewater truck accident lawyers.
