Cape Breton Truck Accident Lawyer

Regardless of where you live, truck drivers play an important role in ensuring your quality of life. Carrying essential goods, materials, and products across our nation’s highways, over borders, and over bridges, truck drivers play a crucial role in the supply chain. Cape Bretoners rely on truck drivers to deliver all manner of products to the island, including food and other essentials.

Truck drivers are often tasked with grueling delivery schedules. In order to meet the demands of their jobs, they often sacrifice their own health and physical safety. Spending long hours in their truck’s cabs, they might eat full meals behind the wheel, use their mobile devices while driving, or indulge other distractions that steal their focus from the road. Truck drivers often operate their large commercial vehicles to the point of physical exhaustion, relying on stimulants, amphetamines, or other illicit substances to stay awake for an unhealthy number of hours. To meet their tight delivery deadlines, they may speed excessively, drive recklessly, and improperly change lanes. These are only some of the common examples of truck driver negligence that frequently lead to injury-causing collisions with other vehicles and road users in and around Cape Breton.

When a truck driver’s negligence on the road causes a collision, the outcome can be devastating. Truck accidents often have fatal consequences for the occupants of passenger vehicles involved in the collision. Negligent truck drivers could also cause unsuspecting road users to sustain severe, life-altering injuries. Their wrongful conduct behind the wheel could cause an unsuspecting road-user to endure lengthy periods of hospitalization, lose their mobility and independence, develop disabling mental health conditions, and incur substantial financial losses.

If you were injured in a collision caused by a negligent truck driver, our truck accident lawyers serving Cape Breton may be able to offer important legal assistance and advice. Our Cape Breton truck accident lawyers have a history of helping the injured clients we represent recover financial compensation for damages they have incurred as a result of their injuries. Depending on the circumstances of your collision, our truck accident lawyers serving Cape Breton may be able to pursue compensation from the at-fault driver as well as the company that employed them.

When the negligence of a truck driver causes another driver or road user to sustain physical injuries and compensable damages, in many instances, negligence on the part of their employer may have contributed to the factors leading to the collision. For example, if a trucking company was aware that one of their drivers had a history of unsafe behaviour on the road but took no steps to reprimand them or remove them from their roster, they may be considered liable for damages arising from accidents caused by the driver’s negligence. Similarly, if the delivery schedule created by a trucking company required their driver to operate their vehicle past the point of physical exhaustion, they may have forced their driver to choose between someone else’s physical safety and their job. If an accident occured because a truck driver’s employer gave them a delivery schedule that was impossible to meet safely, the employer may be required to financially compensate any parties injured by their contributory negligence.
